Invoice Factoring is the business finance and cash flow tool many companies use to provide cash when they need it, using their receivables (unpaid invoices) to do so. The concept of factoring is said to date back thousands of years and it is alive and well in modern day business. Since you invoice your customer and then have to wait 30 days or more to receive payment, it can put a drag on your cash flow, especially in the transportation industry. Using a company like Freight Factoring Specialists (FFS), you can convert these open invoices for cash in your account in a matter of hours instead of weeks! When you factor with us, you are selling your invoice to Freight Factoring Specialists at a small discount in exchange for the ability to receive cash that same very day.
Once you are set up in Freight factoring Specialists’ system, you will forward your approved customer’s Bill of Lading to us. In turn, we will buy that invoice from you by sending you the agreed upon amount based on the invoice total. FFS will then invoice your customer and collect payment on the invoice. No further action is required on your part. Send us your BOL and we send you cash, factoring for trucking companies is as simple as that!
Factoring your invoice is a great tool, especially in the Transportation field. When you haul loads, your work is done, right? Unfortunately not! You then need to prepare an invoice and wait until your customer pays you. Then you need to enter that invoice, deposit the check and wait for it to clear. As you may know this process could be time consuming and take weeks to finish and get your money in your account where you need it.
Factoring makes it simple. For a small pre negotiated fee, all the back end work can be handled by FFS freeing you up to haul more loads. Factoring is the ideal cash flow solution.
Using a trucking factoring company like Freight Factoring Specialists, you are providing your business with the near instant cash flow you need to succeed. FFS does a lot of the heavy lifting back office work for you while giving you the cash you need to grow.
Not at all! We will need some basic information from you to setup your account with FFS. Once approved and setup, you can start sending BOL’s right away and receive your factoring funds.

No, you do not. However, all invoices for a particular vendor must be factored with us. In other words if you factor an invoice for customer “ABC trucking”, then all invoices from ABC must be factored. If you invoice other companies while you are always welcome to, you are not required to factor them.
No. Invoice discounting is not generally available in the transportation industry, we only offer factoring.
Yes, we offer recourse and non-recourse invoice factoring. The two types differ in one major component and that is, responsibility. In non-recourse factoring, you the customer have no responsibility to reimburse FFS for bad invoices, FFS is taking the credit and collection risk. In recourse factoring, you the customer would be responsible for reimbursing FFS for non-collectible invoices. Recourse factoring is usually a cheaper method of factoring.
