No more overcharges, reduced internal handling costs and total invoice control

A complete service

Sonat offers a complete service called Freight Cost Management (FCM) for the payment and control of freight invoices. The service also includes an option to allocate freight costs to your cost centers, for example projects, customers or markets.

FCM streamlines internal management and eliminates incorrect payments. It makes life easier for both the finance and the logistics departments.

FCM checks and retrieves incorrectly invoiced freight costs, which normally amount to 4–6% of the cost of the freight volume.

FCM streamlines the handling cost of freight invoices with up to 70%

Do you want to…

  • have control over your freight invoice process
  • retrieve overcharges
  • be able to allocate freight costs to customers and sales companies based on actual costs
  • work with fact-based documentation rather than standard costs

Costs related to transportation are often hidden and generate uncertainty.
