Insufficient Carrier’s Recording
Small package audit problems are hard to discover because many carriers do not document all the information needed to accurately audit and recover money from service and rate audits.
With a technology focused approach, Intune Logistics designed its system to be highly sensitive to small package problems and to identify them quickly and accurately.
