Carrier agreements are complex. With addendums and artifacts like Net Rate Tables, it’s common to see some discrepancies between observed and expected.
The Carrier Agreement Compliance (CAC) report helps to identify these errors. The intent of this article is to provide directions for tuning a carrier agreement based on the observed data.
Most shipments should be at a difference of $0. As a percentage, this is expected to be 50% or greater of the total shipments.

If you see a batch of shipments with a similar amount of discounts, -$0.20 for example, take a look at the other columns to gain context on the Charge Type, Service Type, Weight and Zone specific to those shipments.
Adjustments can be made to the agreement to move these amounts to the targeted amount in the Difference column of $0.00.
