What Is Freight Factoring?

What Is Freight Factoring?

Freight factoring is a way for trucking companies to receive immediate payment from their customers, instead of waiting 30 to 90 days. By converting freight bills to cash quickly, freight factoring helps transportation companies improve and manage their cash flow.

The way it works is a factoring company pays the freight company for their invoices right away, then, for a fee, collects payment for those freight bills from the trucking company’s customer later.

In order for transportation companies to succeed, they need consistent cash flow for ongoing operations and future growth opportunities. If a freight company chooses to factor, the factoring company (or “factor”) considers their customer’s ability to pay, not theirs. The biggest attraction to freight factoring is not being held captive by slow-paying customers.
