Sarah Eggleston discusses freight payment solutions in September Inbound Logistics

Director of Sales, Sarah Eggleston was interviewed for the September edition of Inbound Logistics, discussing her expertise in the freight payment sector of logistics.

Excerpt:

As more shippers operate around the globe, they can wind up with silos of disparate freight bill information. Many look to their freight bill audit and payment providers to bring this information together, so they can make better sense of it and even leverage it to reduce costs or better manage their supply chains.

Companies want to use the information collected from freight bills, bills of lading, and backup documentation to improve the supply chain, from purchasing through transportation,” Eggleston says. “They can dig into all the details.”

In the past, many companies managed freight spending regionally, Eggleston says. Today, more manage these expenses globally in order to get a better handle on overall freight spending and negotiate more effectively with vendors. Sunset offers solutions to both process invoices in multiple countries and provide visibility to freight expenses across the world.
