Carrier Agreement Compliance (CAC) evaluates each line item on carrier invoices for rate accuracy. This includes transportation charges, discounts and incentives of all types, and accessorial charges. The intent of this article is to guide you through the CAC workflow.
Carrier Agreement Compliance (CAC) benefits
CAC is fully automated and accounts for all parts of a pricing agreement including earned discounts, rate caps, and minimum charge reductions. The active carrier agreement is compared to the individual charges on carrier invoices. The post-audit can be performed on the last six months of invoices. When discrepancies are identified, disputes are filed before the customer pays their invoice.
