The 4 easy steps to freight factoring with Tetra Capital
How do I Factor My Freight Bills?
Once you deliver the load a factoring company, such as Tetra Capital, can make cash available to you from 65% to 95% of the face value of your unpaid freight bill within hours. The factoring company pays the balance, less a service fee, to you when your customer pays the invoice. While the factoring company waits to be paid, you have a large portion of your money to use as needed.
Benefits of working with a factoring company
Banks will consider whether your company is financially sound when deciding to approve a loan while factoring companies don’t look at the size of your business, your time in business or your creditworthiness. In fact, factoring companies look at the creditworthiness of your customers. There are also many benefits of working with Tetra Capital such as fuel cards, free credit checks on potential brokers and shippers and no long-term contracts.
