Accurate Transportation Data for Supply Chain Analysis
Transportation is often one of the largest cost components in the supply chain, and therefore a key data component for supply chain analysis. The more transportation costs can be understood and analyzed, the greater the opportunity for savings, better decisions and improved planning.
Freight audit and payment is a business process that has proven to be an invaluable source of actionable information. Why? The most reliable source of transportation expense data is your freight invoices. Assuming your organization or your freight payment provider does an expert job in extracting and organizing the data from these invoices, you will have excellent data to use in supply chain analysis. When invoice details are integrated with other shipping data, the foundation for powerful business intelligence is created.
