Freight Factoring and the Canadian Transport Industry

Mar 27, 2008
In this article we look at how tough the Canadian transport industry is and how it has an adverse affect on the trucking business.

Every country has its own rules and regulations regarding transportation. Some are lenient but some have very stringent laws concerning freight factoring. Canada is one such country that expects truckers to make quite a few payments. Due to a credit line of 30 to 60 days, most truckers always fall short of cash, and hence do not have a steady flow of the same. They have expenses that are recurring like, payment of salaries, repairs and maintenance of the vehicles, fuel charges and various other unforeseen expenses.

So virtually, you are left in a very dicey situation. If you do have a stable financial position or a healthy bank account, then you are heading for disaster. You keep paying and paying and paying. What you really need at this time is what Canada calls, 'freight bill factoring'- a finance company which not only bails you out of your dying financial situation, but is a much easier and safer option than a bank. It not only gives you a higher rate of interest, but makes it very difficult to get a loan if you do not have all the documents intact.

On account of all these obstacles that people face with the banks, Canadian transportation companies prefer freight bill factoring which is fast, convenient and works better for them. Since customers pay later, factoring companies extend upto 90% finance on freight bills that are lengthy or slow ones (not instant). And this helps the trucker or transportation company with their monetary commitments, and also they don't have to deal with customers who pay slowly.

Once the last customer has settled the bill, then the transaction is complete. Their rates can be anything from 1.5% to 5% every month. And it all depends on the volume of load (amount of load should be constant and on the higher side) and also on the credibility of the customer. So also ensure that you attract great customers, who pay on time. Factoring companies help you get rid of bad clients who have a negative financial track record. Since they take charge, they ensure that all your customers are good and this helps small transportation companies in a positive way.

This stream of steady cash flow is a great way to increase your finances and make yourself completely independent and funded well. Build it up so that someday you would not need a factoring company anymore, as you will be able to meet with all your liabilities and expenses. Plan well and you will definitely take your business on the road to success. You can choose whether you would like to be paid by cash or the card. Both options are available. Take your little business in the right direction with the help of a freight factoring company and someday you will be able to stand up for every expense.
