Our FedEx Audit & Recovery Process
Sync With FedEx Billing Online
After connecting to your FedEx account, we start by examining each line item to find eligible refunds based on FedEx’s service guarantee. Setup is swift and only takes a few minutes!
Spot Service Failures and Late Deliveries
Our FedEx audit software reviews each FedEx package to detect multiple points of service failure, such as late package deliveries, invalid surcharges, duplicate fees, and more.
Refunds Credited to Your FedEx Shipping Account
We file FedEx refund claims for you and directly credit the recovered funds to your FedEx shipping account. Shipware manages the entire process of correcting any wrong charges, requiring zero effort on your part.
Why Choose Shipware for Your FedEx Invoice Audit
FedEx shipping invoices often contain billing errors. Depending on your mix of FedEx Ground to Express services, you could find that 1% to 5% of your invoices are eligible for refunds based on FedEx’s service guarantee.
Scanning invoices manually to identify overcharges, and then submitting individual refund claims is not just cumbersome and time-consuming, but also prone to error.
Shipware’s FedEx audit software automates the entire process for you.
The logistics and supply chain sector is always changing, with teams continually facing new challenges. As priorities shift, you might not have the bandwidth to audit your FedEx shipping invoices within the 15-day window that FedEx provides, potentially missing out on significant savings. 15 days is pretty standard amongst most carriers.
Our FedEx auditing software focuses solely on refund claims and correcting charges, allowing your staff to concentrate on other tasks and ensuring you claim all eligible refunds.
While it may be somewhat straightforward to spot late deliveries manually, there’s more to auditing than that. Eligible refunds can also include duplicate charges, invalid address correction fees, incorrect residential surcharge fees, wrong DIM weight charges, and missing proof of delivery. Not all shipments that seem refund-eligible during a manual audit are indeed eligible, given FedEx’s money-back guarantee exceptions like weather delays. Shipware’s FedEx audit software eliminates the hassle and risk of incorrect claims.
With Shipware, you get access to our online parcel portal where your data is transformed into interactive charts, graphs, and reports, offering actionable insights to your team. This easy-to-use portal helps you manage your FedEx costs, find savings opportunities, and tackle issues like service discounts and surcharge fees.
Businesses that partner with Shipware average 21.5% savings on annual shipping costs
Whether they spend $100 million or fifty thousand per year on shipping, Shipware has helped businesses across all sizes and industries cut costs and spend smarter.
What we learned after working with Shipware is that the confidentiality provision in carrier pricing agreements is a well thought-out strategy to prevent shippers from understanding the rates and terms of other shippers since we can’t disclose rates. The Shipware process allowed us to better understand the discounts and concessions we were entitled to without any breach in terms with our delivery partners.

We used to use a broker for our LTL shipments. In theory, it’s a good concept: benefit with deeper discounts by aggregating volume from hundreds of other shippers. However, after working with Shipware, we learned that we could avoid huge broker markups and reduce our LTL costs by forging direct relationships with the carriers. We are saving 18% with the same high-quality LTL providers we had been using previously, and as we grow, WE benefit with even higher discounts – and not the broker. We’re also using Shipware’s TMS to identify the right carriers for the right loads for better time in transit at lower costs. I’ll never use a broker again.

I’m not new to logistics. Been at my job nearly two decades, and I’ve worked with 4-5 parcel invoice audit companies during my career. Shipware’s audit is hands down the best. It delivers significantly greater savings week in and week out, and their spend management reports and portal are tools I actually use to improve my business.
