Desk Level Accounting
Desk Level Accounting allows for the Trade Manager users to record shipment level income and expenses associated with each file by directly invoicing customers and protecting costs.

Multiple profit centers may be associated with each shipment to properly record the billing associated to each station and provide a complete view of the file’s profitability.
