Yes, It's Possible to Track Freight Expenses Down to SKU or Product Line!

Challenge: One of the main issues our larger clients have is being able to appropriately account for freight expenses. Many times, freight expense is allocated to a product, or product line of business, via a cost pool approach that does not reflect actual divisional or departmental expenditures.

Solution: Our global data warehouse solution for our customer was able to combine our in house paid freight data, with other internal (or external) customer data feeds. This warehouse, front ended by a best of breed business discovery and intelligence tool, saves money by eliminating 1) the countless hours spent creating innumerable ad-hoc excel spreadsheets and pivot tables and/or 2) the increased labor expense of staffing database query building gurus.

Results: With our solution they not only save money, they are able to make much more accurate business decisions for example by knowing a true cost of goods sold amount by SKU or product line.
