Freight Management

Rail Procurement, Invoice Auditing, & Financials

How can you ensure that you are getting the maximum value from your rail transportation dollar? How can you reduce waste from duplicated payments, late payment penalties, and even undetected administrative errors and miscalculations by the railroads? How can you ensure that your quoted freight rates are competitive in the industry and the best deal for you? 

QTS’ Financial and Auditing Services can help you! Here are just a few of the ways our experienced professionals can minimize your expenditures and validate your costs.
 
  • Rail Freight Procurement:  QTS can negotiate rates on your behalf, leveraging our experience and relationships to get you the best rate possible. We're able to compare your rates with others in the industry, and leverage our knowledge and customer base to get the best rate possible for your volume. We often save shippers thousands in new negotiated rates, and QTS can handle the aggravation of yearly rate renewals for you too. We'll work to keep your transportation costs down, so you can focus on expanding your business.
 
  • Rail Freight Auditing: Let QTS validate freight invoices for accuracy, and handle all disputes and exception management so you don’t have to. We will ensure the invoice rate matches your contracted rate, and correct railroad errors before they get paid. One customer saved over $60,000 a month through our diligent auditing work and disputing incorrect rail billings.

And those aren't the only financial services we provide.  QTS can also help you with:

 
  • Railcar Tax Preparation & Management: QTS can prepare and file your railcar taxes with the appropriate principalities to ensure timely compliance with government requirements while maximizing all tax benefits you are entitled to.
 
  • Mileage Credits & Empty Tank Car Equalization: QTS has the know-how to ensure you are properly reimbursed for mileage credits earned, and that penalties for empty tank car equalization are kept to a minimum. QTS works with the railroads on your behalf to maximize credits and reduce penalties where-ever possible.
