Volatility in ocean freight rates has added to the growing problem of inaccurate invoicing in the container shipping industry. It’s hard for ocean freight vendors to keep their eyes on invoice accuracy, when they are focused on increasing rates, margins and trying to return to profitability. For thousands of businesses in the ocean freight sector, this represents revenue leakage on a grand scale. Those in the shipping industry who benefit from these financial miscalculations have not been quick to acknowledge the situation, but Ocean Audit exists to detect and correct improper invoicing.
Ocean Audit has been auditing ocean freight for almost two decades, building an international clientele that includes 11 companies in the Fortune 100. We can produce refunds for you even after your own team or 3rd party auditors have signed off on the accuracy of your invoice. Our specific focus on ocean freight allows us to audit with greater accuracy than other, less specialized internal or external auditors.
Historic invoices are analyzed through a proprietary process to uncover inaccuracies and return revenues to where they belong – in your treasury. Our background, know-how and commitment ensure refunds, or our services are free.
Running your business takes up all of your time.
Unlike traditional freight audits, we oversee the whole auditing process. The set-up takes less than four hours, and there's no need for you to gather paper documents or do time-consuming administrative work.
Presenting you with the results can take under one hour – or we can present directly to your ocean freight vendors. Either way, it’s simplicity itself to work with us.
The process of securing your ocean freight refund can begin right away. Depending on your volume of business, we can complete a Standard Audit in less than 45 days, or a Premium Audit in less than 60 days.
Equally important to generating historic refunds and credits is the eradication of current errors being made by your ocean freight vendors. Our post audit will take your company up to “real time” – and creates a plan for your vendors to eliminate current errors through immediate corrective actions.
