    Factoring for Freight Brokers

    As a freight broker, it’s a constant balancing act of managing receivables from shippers and payables to transportation companies. A freight broker's responsibility is to arrange transportation companies to ship goods for its clients in exchange for a fee. Freight brokers frequently deal with slow-paying shippers, which causes a cash flow problem when it’s time to pay carriers. Not only is this common, but it can also have a big impact on a freight broker's ability to find carriers for its shippers. If carriers aren’t paid within terms, they often turn to other freight brokers or try to work directly with shippers to avoid slow or potentially nonpayment. In order to avoid this situation, many companies turn to freight broker factoring programs.

    What is Freight Factoring?

    Freight factoring, also known as trucking factoring, takes your unpaid invoices in exchange for upfront cash. This means you don’t have to wait 30 to 90 days to receive payment for the work you’ve already done. Lenders often advance up to 90% of the total invoice value, and you’ll receive the remaining balance once your customers pay their dues.
