EBE Adds Fraud Detection into Their Logistics Management Application

EAST MOLINE, IL -- EBE Technologies, the leading provider of document and content management, workflow and business process automation solutions for the transportation industry, announces the addition of fraud detection capability within its Logistics Management software.  The fraud detection function works within the carrier onboarding module to compare the phone number and address of a carrier completing an online application with the data contained within the FMCSA database and that of White Pages .com. For a carrier packet to be created and released to the potential carrier, all sources are required to match. If any portion of the information does not match, the carrier application is re-routed into a workflow queue and sorted by the data exception. As an additional safeguard, the fraud detection function will also compare addresses and phone numbers that reside in EBE's Carrier On-Boarding database. 
An additional capability within the fraud detection module focuses on insuring that the same carrier to which the load was brokered, is the carrier who arrives at the shipper’s location. As a rate confirmation is received, the system sends a notification to the shipper with the carrier information that has been assigned and accepted the load.  If a different carrier arrives to move the shipment, the shipper will alert the logistic company, and through workflow, would trigger an event to the logistics company to determine if the move was re-brokered or if the shipment was in danger of being stolen.
"Recently there have been numerous articles from the TIA discussing fraud within the logistics industry and the lack of resources law enforcement is able to apply to such crimes," said Larry Kerr President of EBE Technologies, "As logistic companies work to find carriers to cover moves, ensuring the validity of a carrier may be over looked. With the fraud workflow functionality, the process happens automatically and provides an extra safeguard for carriers and the companies they serve."
