FAQs for TSPs
PayPort Express provides the following core services to participating GSA agency customers and TSPs:
- Receive Bills of Lading (BOL) from agency customer;
- Receive invoices from TSPs on behalf of the agency customer;
- Pay TSPs for the invoices approved by the customer;
- Make payment to TSPs on behalf of the agency customers for shipments invoiced; and
- Provide reporting and supply chain business intelligence on transportation program spend.
AYes, this program is a requirement for all GSA FMP, CHAMP and TDRS 653-7 TSPs. TSPs will be required to provide invoice information to PayPort Express through the Syncada network. Agencies participating in PayPort Express will make payment to the TSP through the system. If a corresponding agency has not been implemented onto the system, TSPs must submit a copy of the final invoice to the Syncada platform. Electronic copies are preferred.
Preferred method is that final invoice is sent to Syncada electronically (EDI 210 for Freight, EDI 859 for HHG). Paper copies can also be sent. Specific data elements required by GSA will be sent to all TSPs.
Paper invoices will not be necessary for Network participating carriers invoicing network participating agencies, as all invoicing functionality is available via TSP EDI or, via the collaborative interface.
TSPs that are paid immediately upon invoice approval through the Network from a participating agency will pay a small trade finance fee as a percentage of the invoice. The fee generally works out to be far less than it would cost you to fund this receivable, resulting in savings for you. If a corresponding Agency has not been implemented into the system, TSPs will not be paid through the Network and will not pay a trade finance fee. Other fees may apply based on additional services selected by the carrier. If you are new to the Network, these fees will be covered in the sign-up process.

Once all of the documentation has been approved, it typically takes less than a week for you to be set up in the system and have access. If you are going to do electronic invoice integration, it can take a little longer as setup and testing must be completed.
