WHY IS CASH FLOW IMPORTANT IN TRANSPORTATION?
When you ask small business owners what’s important to them, most will tell you three things: cash flow, reducing expenses, and increasing operating efficiencies.
Running a trucking business is no different. Cash is king, and where and how fast owners get cash is integral to keeping businesses running.
However, this is a big problem for many small to midsize trucking companies. Many shippers or brokers will pay truckers net 30 days or net 45 days.
Trucking companies simply cannot wait for the 30 to 45 days it takes to get their money for hauling a load. They need it immediately to pay drivers, pay for fuel, and keep their trucks in tip-top shape.
There are many limitations to optimizing cash flow on your own. Improvements can be made that will benefit your business, and working with a factoring services partner can make these optimizations even easier.

THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH A FREIGHT FACTORING COMPANY YOU TRUST
Offloading items that take up necessary family time and work-life balance, is just one of the benefits. Along with this, you’ll notice:
Access to funds the same day you complete your loads.
Waiting 45 days to get paid isn’t an option for many truckers. You should be able to get fast and easy access to your cash from completed loads, as well as a rock-solid business partner that can bring you peace of mind.
Business tools that make your life easier.
A good factoring partner will have tools and expertise that help you with everything you need, not just same-day cash.
Discounts to reduce your business expenses
Look for a partner that has discounts on everything you need, such as fuel and tires.

Here’s how we work with small to midsize trucking companies and independent truckers:
We can get you your funds in 30–40 minutes. Select “wire” for your funding method, and once your load paperwork is processed, disbursed funds show up in your account 30 to 40 minutes after we initiate the wire.
Fuel cards to reduce expenses. Add our fuel card or fuel discounts to reduce expenses, and you will maximize your bottom line with your increased revenue and reduced expenses.
Funds are immediately available in your fuel account. Have an EFF fuel card? Just tell us to disburse your funds to your fuel account. Once we hit the “go” button, the cash is immediately available in your account.
