When you ship damage to your goods will negatively impact your customer’s experience. Even as your team takes every step to ensure the delivery meets your customer expectations improper handling by carriers or adverse events such as storms, natural disasters, accidents and a range of dangers exist in the transportation industry — and sometimes, deliveries are simply unpredictable. Having an comprehensive process to mitigate the negative impact of the customer experience is critical. Part of that process is management of your freight claims allowing you to solve these claim issues quickly and effectively, allowing you to get back to quality service. Rockfarm can help you with freight management solutions designed to get you focused on your business and improving the customer experience.
What Is Freight Audit?
During a freight audit, your freight bills are verified, examined and reconciled to ensure they are accurate. The process involves checking invoices, verifying shipper and carrier information, looking at mileage and shipping weight, analyzing tracking numbers, identifying and additional accessorials and monitoring for any discounts, as well as the final price. Freight audits also check for missing and duplicate invoices and bills.
What Is Freight Claims Management?
Freight claims management services handle claims for you, so you mitigate a negative experience with your customer to a positive and save money and time. When you outsource freight claims management, you can create a system for easy contact and resolution, as well as a process for keeping track of claims. Freight claims management also ensures no claims slip through the cracks, keeping all clear visibility of potential cause allowing for permanent corrective actions to take hold.
How Does It Work?
When someone makes a claim, there is a point of contact at an organization or a number that suppliers or other stakeholders can call when there is a problem. Once a call is made or a report is filed, the claims process can begin. The goal is to verify damages or losses and resolve the claim quickly and accurately to the satisfaction of our customer and your company’s freight policy.
