International freight forwarder, AFG Customs & Freight Systems Inc, conducted a free freight invoice audit and found that an importer had inadvertently overpaid $50,000.00.
“In our experience many importers and exporters have been overpaying on air freight rates, ocean freight rates and even Customs fees. These overpayments can total hundreds of thousands of dollars annually,” states Keith Hunt, VP of Marketing for AFG.
Founded in 1999, AFG Customs & Freight Systems Inc is a Toronto based international freight forwarder. They provide their global clients complete door to door movement of ocean and air freight shipments together with Customs clearance services in Canada, US and Cuba. Trans border trucking, warehousing and distribution services are also available.
“We provide free freight invoice auditing to catch small errors in documentation that are not easily spotted or totally missed by company staff. These errors, if left, lead to substantial losses annually.”
An AFG freight invoice audit consists of checking freight invoices for errors in rates, proper commodity description, examination of miscellaneous charges, and weights are checked against bill of lading and extensions are calculated
“For instance the company that saved $50,000.00 was not a client at the time. Our auditing found that their products were incorrectly rated for import duties. We applied for and received a refund from Customs. Now we handle their Customs clearance and all subsequent shipments are correctly rated.”
“We also found that they had been overpaying for cargo insurance, and that was amended too.”
“Offering free freight invoice audit is a non-threatening way to demonstrate our expertise as international freight forwarders. There’s absolutely no obligation whatsoever to the company, but we would hope that they remember us for future shipments,” concludes Hunt.
