Our Shipping Invoice Audit Process:
Step 1: Submit Shipping Invoices
Send us your UPS® and FedEx® Invoices and we will run it through our proprietary parcel audit software.
Step 2: Identify Overcharges
Our freight invoice auditing software sifts through 65+ line items to identify shipping charges that are eligible for refunds.
Step 3: Recover Refunds
For every incorrect charge identified by our parcel audit software, our team will file a claim with the carrier for you.
Why Should I Audit My Invoices?
When we talk with a potential partner, the first thing that they often say is, “I’ve been personally monitoring my shipping contracts for years, why should I audit my freight invoices now?”
There are many reasons to audit your freight invoices, but the main reason is that over $2 billion goes unclaimed each year with FedEx, UPS, and LTL carriers. After 17 years and thousands of audits, we have never come across an instance where a client was not overpaying their carrier. We want to make sure that you are not leaving money on the table.
One way to do this is to have a member of our talented team of former shipping industry executives walk you through how to audit your freight bills. This presents a challenge, however, as weekly carrier invoices are loaded with billing errors and service failures that are virtually impossible to locate without our proprietary technology. For this reason, we suggest that you leave the trouble to us. Our automated refund recovery technology has the widest and deepest process within the industry, ensuring that no dollar or cent gets left behind due to our complete billing accuracy.
Our shipping auditing service provides key performance indicators (KPIs) and essential data that you can review quickly and easily, allowing you to make cost-saving decisions on the fly.

They are easy to work with, very knowledge of the industry and provide best in class service for our mutual customers.Mike B.Owner, Logistics Industry, Houston, TX
What we learned after working with Shipware is that the confidentiality provision in carrier pricing agreements is a well thought-out strategy to prevent shippers from understanding the rates and terms of other shippers since we can’t disclose rates. The Shipware process allowed us to better understand the discounts and concessions we were entitled to without any breach in terms with our delivery partners.VP of Supply Chain, Automotive, Detroit MI
