Trucking and transportation companies and freight brokerages all play a vital role in our country’s economy. However, you may struggle with having to pay shippers, suppliers, and fuel charges while experiencing long-wait times for payment of your services. Freight bill factoring from Business Factors & Finance can change all that.
Ship It: Get Cash Quickly with Business Factors’ Freight Factoring
If one industry dominates the use of invoice factoring services more than any other, it is the transportation sector comprised of freight, rail and trucking companies.
In order to keep trucks and freight lines moving, these businesses must have their expenses covered and positive cash flow. Though there are a number of business opportunities for trucking and transportation companies, competition among carriers can be tough with the lowest bidder often securing the job. This can make profit margins slim for small and even mid-sized carriers.
Discover the Benefits of Freight Bill Factoring with Business
While cutting unnecessary costs is a good practice for any business, those in trucking and transportation must often do more than that. Due to the incompatible payment terms that exist between the shipper and the carrier, where the shipper demands immediate payment while the carrier doesn’t collect until delivery, cash flow for many trucking companies tends to be problematic. If not addressed quickly, poor cash flow can be the downfall of many businesses even those that routinely turn a profit.
For these reasons and more, many carriers rely on freight bill factoring to shore up their cash flow. Freight factoring allows transportation companies to get paid in a few days instead of 30 or more days.
Freight Invoice Factoring with Business Factors Enables Companies to:
- Cover expenses associated with the transportation industry, such as fuel, vehicle maintenance and repair, containers, drivers’ payroll, licensing fees, insurance and more.
- Improve cash flow so that your company can operate in a more cost effective manner.
- Have money in the bank so they can bid on future jobs.
- Expand its fleet of vehicles to take on new routes or haul additional loads.
- Invest in marketing or promotional activities to attract new business.
As an experienced transportation factoring company Business Factors also offers some secondary benefits such as non recourse freight factoring. This means even if your client doesn’t pay its bill, you get to keep the money advanced to you. This can be an important consideration for a trucking company that is just starting out or one moving into an unfamiliar territory or region.
Learn about Your Clients in Advance with Freight Factoring
Because Business Factors will run a credit check on a potential client, you can know ahead of time whether or not this client has a recent history of paying its bills on time. Discovering this information in advance can save you a lot of aggravation further down the road.
After all, you would most likely hesitate to take on a new customer if you knew in advance they had a poor record of paying their bills. This is one more reason why many in trucking and transportation choose freight bill factoring as their preferred financing option.

These fuel cards allow a portion of the money from freight bill factoring to be deposited directly on the fuel card account. This way, drivers don’t have to carry cash and you don’t have to wonder how they will pay for gas. Fuel cards are a complimentary offering and part of the larger freight bill factoring process.
