When you are starting a trucking company, how can trucking factoring help?
Trucking factoring, which is also called freight bill factoring, can help you get access to the immediate working capital you need when starting a trucking company by eliminating the 30-60+ days it can take to be paid allowing you to haul more loads. It is a good financing option for new trucking companies because factoring companies don’t look at your credit history or time in business. Instead they look at your brokers and shippers credit history and time in business.
With trucking factoring, all you have to do is deliver the load, submit the paperwork to the freight bill factoring company and we will get you the funds within hours. Tetra Capital will handle all the invoicing, processing and collecting on all your receivables/loads which can be really helpful to new trucking owner-operators. We then wait to get paid by your customer. It is quick, easy and with no hidden or unexpected fees, you know what to expect from us every time.
