Keep track of your shipping costs
By taking control of your shipping costs you can save a lot of money. The freight calculation in tls can be used independently or as part of other tls modules.
Standalone you use the system to make ongoing calculations and get a price for a freight before placing an order. If you use freight calculation together with the shipping system, the basis for a calculation is taken from an actual shipment and the result is saved for later reconciliation against the invoice, manually or electronically.
Quotation registration can handle:
- multiple sending/receiving locations
- distance based rates
- zip code based rates
- break point calculation
- volumetric calculation
- weight rounding
- multiple currencies
- additional costs, based on:
- real weight
- volumetric weight
- weight intervals
- zip code intervals
- length of the goods
- number of packages
- number of customs items
- invoice amount
You can use the analysis tool in tls to compare quotes and contracts for tenders. You also have the possibility to analyze historical data and existing agreements. The basis may be statistics from a freight forwarder or consignments in tls. This way you can follow up and keep track of your shipping costs. The result is exported to Excel for further processing or presented as a diagram directly in the program.
Electronic invoice control
Some freight forwarders can send the invoice electronically, which can be loaded into tls with automatic reconciliation against previous freight calculation.
