Meet John

Global Logistics Head for a Fortune 1000 Enterprise

John is collaborating with 100+ ecosystem partners across carriers, freight forwarders & parcel service providers.

My outsourced service provider stores freight contracts as documents with the freight rates & accessorial charges in complete disarray. They are unable to keep tab of rate updates and thereby their audit inaccuracies translate to overpayments.

All your contracts and rates are digitized and version controlled in a structured format with audit trail on any rate changes through a configurable rate manager. Pando helps you to manage your base & mode specific complex accessorial charges effortlessly as you can leverage a simple low code/ no code option to manage your accessorial charges definition and calculations against your freight contracts.

On-time Freight Accruals

My finance teams chase me every month r to record freight accruals estimates to provision the expenses against the accounting period. However, my freight audit service provider does not have the capability to estimate freight accruals as they start the process only after receiving carrier invoices which is 30-60 days beyond the accounting period

On-time Freight Accruals

With integrated rate management & shipment data, you have 100% visibility to freight accruals through shipment costing at every milestone of shipment ( transportation by mode, handling fees, customs, etc. ) as its incurred to account anticipated transportation costs on-time to enable effective budgeting & financial planning. With AI/ML, you can also leverage predictive freight accrual estimations.

Quote – More than 25% of the invoices have errors or discrepancies and this translates to constant back & forth with my carriers to audit & pay the invoices. This is a huge drain in my team’s productivity, deviates our focus from core logistics operations and impacts our carrier relationships!

Automated Self-Billing for Carriers

You can leverage a unified platform with your carriers & freight forwarders to collaborate seamlessly. In this context, with integrated rate management & shipment data, you can automatically generate a proforma invoice for every shipment and enable your carriers to raise invoices in one click. As this is a self-audited process, it helps to translate to almost 100% first time match rate.

Automated audit & reconciliation

When we do a post-audit review we still discover invoice discrepancies and duplicate bills on payments made by our service provider. Due to lack of rate management or access to shipment data, the audits are inaccurate, translating in overpayment of our freight bills.

Automated audit & reconciliation

You can leverage an automated 4-way match of your invoices against your contracted rates, shipment data & purchase order . You can easily configure tolerance levels for automated approvals. With AI/ML, you can leverage OCR to process PDF invoices and automatically detect anomalies (say duplicate invoices) for scaling first-time match rate.

I have no visibility to any communication between my freight audit service provider and carriers. Their systems are not integrated with carriers and there seems to be too much back & forth in terms of billing clarifications & disputes! Ultimately, I need to pay late fees owing to payment delays and it impacts our relationship with carriers

Real-time Carrier Collaboration

Enable your carriers with real-time visibility into invoice status and collaborate with them in real-time around unmatched invoices with clearly articulated discrepancies in billing and automated recommendations to fix them to swifty process invoices. Your carriers would also have 100% visibility to their payment status or complete breakdown around carrier debit calculations for automating debit notes for recovery in a post payment audit.

Automate Payment to Carriers

There are so many paper checks, payment settlement queries before the payment is disbursed to my carriers. My freight audit service provider also delays payments or does not communicate payment status creating so much friction with my carriers!

Freight Spend Analytics & Insights

My freight audit service provider just gives me a dump of freight spend data without any insights around freight spend or carrier performance which is critical to make any strategic decisions.
