Automation of Freight Auditing Led to Savings in Procurement Costs


The client, a major automotive parts manufacturer, was using 3PL for shipping goods to customer locations. In some cases, the customer information was outdated/recorded incorrectly, or the carriers intentionally/unintentionally introduced anomalies in the ship, thus increasing costs. The solution was developed using Sancus – data quality tool to pull data from invoices and validate customer information, thereby automating the freight invoice audit process.


  • Identify customers from:
    • Invoice data in ERP systems – extracted data using Intelligent Character Recognition
    • Customer information stored in ERP and CRM systems
  • Validate customer information using 3rd Party APIs
  • Data enrichment using 3rd Party APIs to ensure data recency
  • Triangulate across Customer Information in systems, Invoice data, and Contracts using AI/ML algorithms to detect anomalies
  • Report anomalies in existing systems to ensure minimal learning curve for users

Key Benefits

  • The automation of the freight invoice audit process helped reduce manual work
