Reduce risk, stop overspending

Ocean freight is the largest shipping mode, with more than 11B tons transported annually. It also requires payment prior to releasing goods at the dock. Few organizations have the internal resources to handle the complexity of these large international shipping ocean contracts. AFS offers expert guidance and proven processes for every claim regardless of amount. We leave no stone unturned as we pursue collection from start to finish.

Pay only for what we find

AFS Ocean Audit is based on gainshare pricing, so if we don’t find billing errors, you don’t pay anything. With our interests aligned with yours, you have nothing to lose.
