After a provider submits a POD, they can upload their final cost and invoice via the Cargobase platform. This creates a perfect mechanism for you to compare their original quote versus their invoice and allows you to afterwards export awesome data from the entire lifecycle of the shipment.
When providers submit their invoice, Cargobase compiles a 'Shipment summary'. Depending on the workflow configured for your company you can be asked to audit that invoice. Some companies choose to have a more automated approval, where we match certain criteria and only require manual intervention if certain thresholds are crossed, other companies require full manual audits.
Watch this quick tutorial video on how you can lookup and review these invoices and shipment summary.
After an invoice is approved, the details are automatically forward to the responsible party. This can be your payment provider, an internal audit department, or directly into your ERP.
