When you ask small business owners what’s important to them, most will tell you: cash flow, coming up with ways to reduce business expenses, and more efficient ways to operate their business.
Running a trucking business is no different. Cash is king, and where owners get it from matters a lot.
However, this is a big problem for many small to mid-sized trucking companies. Many shippers or brokers will pay truckers net 30 or net 45.
Trucking companies simply cannot wait the 30 to 45 days it takes to get their money out of 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 partner can make these optimizations even easier.
The benefits of working with a freight factor 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 simply 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.
Ease and Peace of Mind is something all small business owners should be able to achieve.
The key in general is finding the right partner. They should’ve walked miles in your shoes and deeply understand what it takes to make that ride easier.
