General Ledger Coding (GLC) service overview

The GLC service is designed to automate the general ledger coding process for your customers who are high-volume shippers. The intent of this article is to give an overview of GL Coding service and the features available to your customers.

Benefit of General Ledger Coding

GLC is a precise, flexible and automated cost accounting solution for scaled enterprises. GLC accelerates reconciliation, amplifies financial transparency and enables businesses to meet internal and external reporting requirements.

How General Ledger Coding works

Rules

GL Coding Rules govern how shipping charges are routed into cost centers and act together to handle exceptions flawlessly. GLC uses specific rules that a customer sets to match invoice data with a customer’s internal codes and validates each cost component.

Using coding logic, any part of the shipping invoice data can be leveraged to route charges into individual cost centers, including the following:

  • Account Number
  • Payment Type
  • Sender Name
  • Sender Company
  • Sender Address
  • Sender City
  • Sender State
  • Sender Country
  • Receiver Name
  • Receiver Company
  • Sender Postal Code
  • Receiver Address
  • Receiver City
  • Receiver State
  • Receiver Country
  • Reference Note
  • Receiver Postal Code

Secondary rules

Think of secondary rules like lower priority rules that target other attributes of a shipment to help handle the exceptions automatically instead of having to reconcile them manually. For example, if a reference field is missing, a secondary rule targeting the ship-from-location correctly routes the charges into the appropriate cost center.
