Massive volatility in ocean freight rates has added to the growing problem of inaccurate invoicing in the container shipping industry. Conservative estimates show that more than 1 invoice in every 10 is incorrect. For thousands of businesses in the ocean freight sector - and that includes your own! - this represents revenue leakage on a grand scale. Small wonder that shipping industry insiders prefer to keep this as their own little secret.
We specialize in uncovering inaccurate invoices by using proprietary processes to evaluate historic invoices. With our background, know-how and commitment, you can look forward to the refund you deserve.
We've been handling hundreds of service contracts and rate agreements successfully every year for almost two decades. During that time, we've built up an impressive list of international clients, including 11 in the Fortune 100.
The driving force behind our intensive levels of client service is to secure major refunds on your ocean freight invoices. At Ocean Audit, we have a simple but compelling aim: to return your hard-earned revenues to where they belong - in your Treasury!
At Ocean Audit, we realize that running your business takes up all your time. Auditing freight invoices may not be top of your list - but the check you receive a few weeks down the line will surely be very welcome!
Unlike traditional freight audits, when you work with us, we will oversee the whole auditing process. The set-up phase takes less than four hours, and there's no need for you to gather paper documents and all the other time-consuming admin that goes with it.
Even presenting you with our results can take under one hour - or we can present directly to your ocean freight vendors. In every way, working with us is simplicity itself!
With Ocean Audit on board, 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 - and in no more than 60 days with a Premium Audit.
The auditing process will clean up all refunds and credits due to your company for the previous three years (in compliance with the Statute of Limitations).
Equally important is the longer-term implication which puts a plan in place to post-audit future invoices. The magical effect of this is to minimize future error rates, and maximize vendor compliance!
For 17 years, our mission every day has been the same - we are a niche/boutique post audit firm dedicated only to finding the ocean freight refund due you.
Internal/External resources used to post audit your invoices may not possess the specialized knowledge to with 100% accuracy post audit your ocean freight invoices.
Ocean Audit is contingency based, there is never a fee if we fail to produce a refund for your company.
Simple Set Up -no use of client resources or staffing required.
