What Services Can A Freight Factoring Company Provide For Your Business

Aug 15, 2008
Your trucking business might suffer from unwanted financial jerks and knocks, if in spite of running it successfully, you might not have ready cash to meet your daily expenses. Trucks require fuel to run, the drivers require weekly wages to drive and so too other employees and there are various other expenses that need to be met on a daily or weekly basis for this business to continue with your reputation and finances intact.

If you are plagued with the above problems, then you need to seriously consider teaming up with an experienced freight factoring company. These are financing companies that will buy off your pending credit invoices and will not only pay you the invoice amount minus their factoring fee, but in case if you so desire, will also take over your receivables off your hands.

The factoring company will deduct a factoring fee ranging from 1.5% to 5% from your invoice amount as their fees. They might also retain another percentage of your invoice ranging from 5% to 10% as security, in case there is any problem in recovering the invoice amount from your clients due to any reason. As compared to a bank loan that might just dump a certain amount of money in your account that would have to be paid back with interest within the specified time frame, a freight factoring company can provide you with a multitude of services with no towropes attached.

The best service that a factoring company can give you is to wire the invoice amount into your bank account within a day or two. This will inject your business with instant cash that can be used to fill fuel, pay your drivers and take care of other business related expenses. Another service that your factoring company can provide is to takeover your receivables section.

While this will require you to inform your clients that the factoring company will henceforth collect the payments on your behalf, it will also free your mind and staff from the tension associated with running after your clients for your money. This invaluable service will enable you to divert your attention and energy towards increasing your sales. The factoring company will also provide you with updated lists of your receivables, so that you too can keep track of your clients. Thus, your freight factoring company will walk hand-in-hand with your business and in fact will become an extension of your business by providing finance at regular intervals as well as arranging to collect the dues from your clients.

In fact, a freight factoring company will be much more proactive than a traditional bank and will customize its services to suit your business. It will arrange to wire the invoice amount into your account as soon as they receive the invoice from you as well as arrange to collect the dues from your clients on the due date, which a bank will never be able to do. The factoring company will also remind your clients to pay up, in case they do not pay by the due date, thus freeing you from monitoring your clients on a regular basis.

The right freight factoring company can therefore provide you with ready money as well as arrange to collect the outstanding dues. Therefore, you can get instant cash to run your business, even as you provide credit to your clients. You can thus get the best of both worlds, just by paying a small factoring fee to your freight factoring company.
