Shipping Audit Services

Identify errors. Uncover ways to save.

Engineering your parcel program is only the first step to optimize your parcel shipping operation.
Most shippers do not have the resources to check each and every invoice for accuracy. Duplicate invoices, misapplied accessorial surcharge fees, incorrect rates—these are just a few that can be found in a full freight or parcel shipping audit.

Even if you wanted to, without the necessary technology, it would take an army of accountants to ensure that you catch every single issue. You can trust the BirdDog SSAE16 Type II compliance shipping audit team to unravel such complex carrier invoices for you. AND we’ll help you identify ways to improve your program. No other auditor does that.
