There are overcharges, mistakes and or late delivered packages on each and every UPS invoice and FedEx invoice, 52 weeks per year. There is a significant amount of money to be saved by allowing LJM Consultants to perform a weekly small parcel audit.
Unfortunately, most companies do not have the employees, the time or the expertise to audit these UPS invoices and FedEx invoices internally. What shippers typically do is “spot check” their invoices. This isn’t efficient. We at LJM Consultants have the software, personnel and industry knowledge to thoroughly audit these invoices and get that money back for your company every week. Our software and our professional parcel freight auditors also examine your carrier contracts to help with FedEx and UPS rate and contract negotiations. We provide the most comprehensive line item audit in the industry. Typical auditing savings are 2%-6% weekly; typical savings from contract negotiations are between 10%-25%.
LJM Consultants makes it easy to learn the potential benefits of parcel auditing. We work strictly on a contingency basis. Our compensation is a percentage of the refunds we recover for you through our weekly invoice audits. We do not require you to sign a contract. There is no obligation. You can discontinue our services anytime you wish. You have absolutely nothing to lose! Worst case scenario, through our efforts, you find that your packages are getting delivered on time, every time, and your carrier is billing you 100% accurately, and you owe us nothing. It is your money; let us help you get it back. Remember, there is virtually no work for you to do. We perform the weekly invoice audits, find the errors and overcharges, work with the carriers behind the scenes and have the carriers credit your subsequent invoices. We also offer our services to help with your contract negotiations.
