Turn Your Slow Cash Flow Into A Waterfall With Invoice Factoring
Sponsored Content by Oregon Commercial Credit
Trucking companies have been using factoring for decades to access to the working capital they need to succeed without waiting for slow-paying customers. If you believe you would benefit from being paid within 24 hours of load delivery, invoice factoring is for you.
Factoring is not a loan, and it’s simple and easy to use. In a nutshell, here’s how it works:
You deliver the load, create the invoice(s) then send your invoice(s) to OCC. We transfer the agreed advance rate to your business account within 24 hours and push the invoices out to your customers. We then work with your customers to collect on the invoices and when they pay us, we send you the balance (reserve, if any), minus our fee. It’s about the time value of money. Is it worth a slight discount on your invoice to get paid today and not have to worry about collection efforts?
Since factoring is not a loan, our main underwriting focus is on the financial strength and creditworthiness of your customer, the ultimate debtor. Our fee structure is customized for each client with the strength of the debtor’s ability to pay and the overall business volume having the largest impact. And we do not require long term contracts, we don’t charge set up fees and we don’t have minimum monthly requirements. Easy, right?
Benefits of factoring
Factoring frees up your cash flow, and in trucking, cash is king. You need a steady source of working capital to purchase fuel, insurance, and equipment, plus meet payroll and those surprise repair bills. Factoring enables you to take advantage of business opportunities without waiting for a bank loan decision or customers to pay invoices. Having a factoring partner like Orange Commercial Credit can make the difference between being able to accept that next job or not, or being able to pay for permits, tags, licenses and more.
An additional benefit to factoring includes our back-office support such as invoice and payment processing and collection efforts, thus freeing you up to do what you do best and potentially eliminating your need to hire additional office staff. Included in our services is credit checking and monitoring your customers. You will have free online access to credit check any customer you are currently working with or considering. That’s huge!
Factoring is especially a good solution for startup and early stage businesses, rapidly growing or undercapitalized companies, those that do not qualify for traditional bank loans (or don’t want debt) or those with seasonal sales. Further, factoring can enhance your balance sheet by improving your debt-to-equity and debt-to-asset ratios.
