Abstract:

Reviews of transportation charges on Commercial Bills of Landing CBLs are done as part of the Prepaid Transportation Program PTP. The PTP program currently calls for a Transportation Specialist to review each invoiced CBL transportation charge that is more than 100. When this threshold triggers a review, the invoice cannot proceed through the Automatic Payment of Invoice system. Instead, it is paid manually, and a second manual pay is done for the shipping charges after they are reviewed and approved. This cost-benefit analysis found that the transportation charge threshold should be changed to 190.
