Questions?

Which carriers can be integrated with Freight Cost Control Services?

Essentially, you can link any carrier that is capable of providing status and event data. AEB handles the technical integration for you. Ideally, the carrier should use an industry standard such as the EDIFACT message IFTSTA. If so, the link can be configured with just a few clicks.

What about the various parameters that the carriers use? Each one has its own terminology, even though they all send similar data.

We convert the carriers’ data into a standardized language. That makes it easier to work with the multiple carriers and also facilitates carrier-to-carrier analyses. This is especially important with KPIs, so that you aren’t comparing apples and oranges.

Which types of freight costs can Freight Cost Control Services handle?

Freight costs almost always consist of several components calculated in completely different ways. Here are a few examples:

  • Simple fixed prices
  • Different types of fee scales
  • Percentage-based surcharges on other fees
  • Freely programmable rules

Freight costs can vary based on completely different factors, including chargeable weight, volume, country of departure or destination, postal code, number and type of packages, distance, Incoterm, or value of goods. Freight Cost Control Services can process price agreements based on these or other factors as a large number of standard values are supported and can be extended if needed.
