Steady cash flow, without it carriers and freight brokers may not be able to stay in business. It is essential for transportation companies to work with a freight factoring company that understands the funding needs of trucking companies and freight brokers. Understanding their needs is the only way a freight factor can truly help solve their cash flow problems. Covering operating expenses, fuel and maintenance of equipment is not an option. Truckers and brokers should work with a freight factoring company that knows the trucking and transportation business and able to offer factoring facilities that are tailored to their individual needs providing on a regular basis the ongoing supply of funding they need based on outstanding invoices, new sales and growth.
