Transportation Factoring and Freight Factoring
How much are you looking for?
Freight Industry Overview
The transportation and trucking industry have long been the backbone of the US economy. A vast majority of what consumers eat, wear, and use on a daily basis are delivered by the trucks. With that comes the need for an extensive workforce spanning from drivers, dispatchers, engineers, and mechanics. This not only results in millions of employees in the trucking industry, but a trickle-down effect to job creation and small businesses that service trucking companies. This ranges from fuel stations, tire companies, mechanics, auto accessories, truck manufactures, etc.
The transportation industry is made up of both independent owner-operators and large trucking companies. Owner-operators are entrepreneurs that own their vehicles and are contracted to both freight brokers and directly with corporations. Larger trucking companies own the vehicles and employ drivers to provide services on larger contracts they have with corporations. In both of these circumstances trucking businesses tend to work with large companies that require 15-90 terms to be given on their contracts. Because of this, many transportation companies turn to freight factoring to get paid faster on invoices. Speak with an SMB transportations specialist today to learn more about our transportation factoring programs.
Factoring for transportation companies is the most common form of financing in the freight industry. This is mainly due to the fact that trucking companies have two assets; trucks/equipment and accounts receivable/invoices. Equipment financing for the trucking industry is used to purchased vehicles while freight factoring is used for working capital.
Freight companies have daily, and weekly expenses associated with day to day operations. Between fuel expenses, repairs, and payroll, there are many bills that have to be paid while waiting on invoices. Invoice terms range from 15-90 days and result in a big cashflow gap between expenses that are incurred and invoices that are paid. To bridge that gap, freight factoring is the best solution. By utilizing freight factoring, also known as transportation factoring, transportation companies can get paid within 24 hours of invoicing clients. By accelerating payments on invoices, transportation companies are able to keep up with daily and weekly expenses.
