Publicly Traded Trucking and Logistics Corporation

Publicly Traded Trucking and Logistics Corporation

  • $500 million + transportation and logistics company with nationwide transportation routes.
  • AdIT was selected by management to perform the Company’s SOX compliance for both the financial and IT controls. AdIT was selected based on its prior success working with Big 4 accounting firms.  The goal of the engagement was not only to perform the testing but to work the IT and internal audit departments to create ways to improve the process and assist the company through the migration to their new business operations software.
  • Within a few months of being onsite, the company was in need of an internal audit director, and their business operations software did not have an adequate security model embedded in the software. The lack of security meant the Company was facing possible negative disclosures in their 10K.
  • AdIT was able to staff the Internal Audit Director position, train new hires within the internal audit department, and streamline testing processes to increase effectiveness and efficiency across all company locations/subsidiaries.   AdIT was able to keep management informed of the SOX compliance process throughout the year and reduce the number of control deficiencies from the prior year. In addition, AdIT was able to leverage technology to develop a security model add-on which enabled defined operational transactions and role-based security to mitigate the risk of unauthorized and inappropriate logical access.
