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 start-up businesses. You can start the simple process at www.TruckApplication.com.

  1. Unlike traditional financing, qualifying for factoring isn’t based on your credit score, your trucking business’s financial history or assets.

Why freight factoring is so important to a carrier?  Freight factoring is the blood flow of cash flow, a carrier to remain competitive and operate successfully must offer credit to its customers, typically 30 to 90 days, so this is cash that the business will not receive right away, so how can the business operate having to wait that long for their payments, well, freight factoring?  With factoring, the trucking company sells its outstanding invoices to a factoring company right after the invoice is issued, providing the carrier with the necessary cash to continue operating without a cash flow shortfall. https://www.1sttruckingfactoring.com

Shortage of Truckers

FoxBusiness reported recently on the shortage of truckers, specifically long-haulers, as per the ATA (American Trucking Association) the trucking industry has a shortage of about 30,000 of qualified drivers, and expected to raise to 200,000 over the next 10 years.   Is DOT Secretary Foxx looking into this, there seems to be a significant opportunity to create new jobs in the transportation sector? According to the June 2014 North American freight Numbers, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics reported that "Trucks carry three-fifths of U.S.-NAFTA freight and are the most heavily utilized mode for moving goods to and from both U.S.-NAFTA partners. Trucks carried 59.5 percent of U.S.-NAFTA freight in June 2014, accounting for $29.8 billion of imports and $31.4 billion of exports." There is a strong focus on infrastructure investments which is necessary but the DOT should not overlook  an opportunity to create jobs.
