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

Samsung Safety Truck works to make trucks transparent

Getting stuck behind a slow-moving truck on a one-lane road is never fun. You can't see what's ahead. You could pass the truck, but is there enough room? Samsung's "Safety Truck" might be the solution. It uses a wireless camera on the truck's front grille, which connects to four displays on the rear of the truck. Vehicles behind the truck can see if another car is approaching (even in the dark), and pass the truck when the coast is clear.
