Benefits of Freight Factoring

What is freight factoring? Freight factoring is simply the purchase of freight bills/accounts receivables, an essential financial tool for trucking and transportation companies.  Freight factoring eases the company's financial tension by funding their net 30-60 and even 90 day freight bills/invoices now - not when they're due!

With factoring, you focus on what you do best; getting and delivering your loads, sales, customer service and growth, and the freight factor focuses on what they do best, factoring/funding your invoices, and assuring that your steady cash flow continues!

With freight factoring, the strengths are in your receivables and the ability of the carrier or brokerage to generate eligible sales - not time in business or financial condition. And, with freight factoring you are not creating debt.

Freight factoring releases cash to bring your business plans to life; grab new opportunities; invest in new equipment, meet payroll and other expenses, or simply negotiate better terms for your business.  Factoring is actually healthy and an essential financial tool for trucking and transportation companies to maintain a steady cash flow.

A factor can fund most situations, including startup businesses, certain clients with poor credit or financial problems, tax liens or bankruptcies!  You can start the simple process at www.TruckApplication.com.

Factoring Large Trucking Companies


(By Blog Contributor)

Is it really becoming more difficult for the larger trucking companies to factor?  A lot of the national factoring companies are limited on advances to $2,000,000 - $3,000,000, unless of course, you're a bank, but then you are going to face the bank's qualifying criteria, which may make it difficult for the struggling carrier to qualify.

Actually, it is not that bad, we found that there are many factoring companies that are advancing as much as $10,000,000, and although qualifying criteria get's tighter on higher advances, the focus still remains on the credit worthiness of the customer, so larger carriers and those that are struggling should not have a problem finding a reliable factor.

The Best Trucking Story Of The Month

A drunken man walks into a trucker's bar, sits down at the bar and orders a drink. Looking around, he sees three men sitting at a corner table. He gets up, staggers to the table, leans over, looks the biggest, meanest, trucker in the face and says:

'I went by your grandma's house today and I saw her in the hallway buck naked.
Man, she is one fine looking woman!'
The trucker looks at him and doesn't say a word.
His buddies are confused, because he is one mean trucker and would fight at the drop of a hat.
The drunk leans on the table again and says:
'I got it on with your grandma and she is good, the best I ever had!'
The trucker's buddies are starting to get really mad but the trucker still says nothing.
The drunk leans on the table one more time and says,
'I'll tell you something else, boy,
your grandma liked it!'
looks him square in the eyes and says..

At this point the trucker stands up,
takes the drunk by the shoulders

'Grandpa;....... Go home!

You're drunk!
