Transportation Factoring companies are financial institutions that buy a carrier’s receivables, take ownership of the invoice, and then collect on the amount due to provide the carrier immediate liquidity to fund their day-to-day operations.

This transaction can yield cash within 24 hours or less. Why would anyone need financing that fast? Because the time-sensitive nature of the freight industry is constantly demanding the flexibility and immediacy of liquid capital to deal with unexpected expenses. Cash is an absolute necessity in trucking and transportation.

When cash or credit has been exhausted by financing, fixed investments, expenses, or emergencies day to day routines are immediately affected. Situations such as making payroll, purchasing fuel, settling insurance payments, or even getting trucks into the shop for required maintenance can quite literally become impossible tasks. This cascade of expenses gains speed while the carrier is forced to wait for 30, 40, sometimes 60 or more days to receive payment from their brokers or shippers! That wait time is where factoring companies like CarrierNet can provide immediate financing options.
