The entire transaction you explained there is nothing wrong abnormal in this.
You will get input credit of GST paid on freight under RCM. GST should be charged on value of supply and value of supply includes freight cost.
Your customer (B2B) can avail input credit on entire invoice amount including freight.
You can take input credit of tax paid under RCM. But only after payment is made and return filed.
Yes initially the cash outflow will be higher but from next month the tax flow cycle will come to normal.
If you claim this to be double taxation than every supply is double taxed. For instance a trade pay tax at the time of purchase and sale.
Here your position is similar to a trader, where you purchase freight service from GTA and sold to your customer.
