Freight Factoring 101: Trade Slow Payments for Immediate Capital
Freight factoring is facing a surge in popularity among trucking and transportation companies across the US.
Trucking business owners are sick of waiting for their invoices, so they started turning to freight factoring companies to turn their slow customer payments into immediate cash.
With peak season in full swing, National Business Capital & Services has been flooded with requests from transportation companies for freight factoring that can’t wait to act on taking advantage of holiday profits.
What is Freight Factoring?
Freight factoring is a method of business financing that involves selling one or more transportation invoices in exchange for immediate cash.
This is the key difference between small business loans and freight factoring. Financing with business loans involves borrowing money from a lender, which the business owner is obligated to pay off over time.
With invoice factoring, freight transportation companies can sell their invoices for immediate cash, and leave the factoring companies themselves to wait for their slow customer payments!
How Does Freight Bill Factoring Work?
- First, a business owner sells one or more invoices to a factoring company.
- The invoice will be sold a a discount. While most factoring companies max out their purchase amount at about 75%, National Business Capital typically covers upwards of 90% of every invoice.
- You receive cash within 24 hours after the sale is made. After that, there’s nothing more for you to do!
- Your factoring company will wait for your customer’s payments.
