Generate More Accurate Freight Accurals

The Cass Ratemaker®application contains a database of information about your carriers, freight contracts and corresponding rates. When you provide a shipment file to Cass – containing information such as carrier, weight, origin, destination, and other key data  the rating system makes mileage and other calculations and provides a total expected cost for that shipment.

Until an invoice is received for the incurred expense, this rated shipment record forms your freight accrual. When an invoice is received, additional information – such as charges for unplanned expenses – may cause the shipment cost to change. In this case, the final shipment cost serves as the accrual amount.

Then let us show you how we can turn your freight payment process into an asset, instead of an incomplete solution that’s draining your resources.
