Non-Recourse Trucking Factoring from Bankers Factoring
In 2022, the trucking industry dominated with over 70 percent of freight transportation in the USA, leaving owner-operators needing working capital to fight slow-paying customers. Thus, Accounts Receivable (A/R) Factoring with Bankers Factoring provides trucking companies, owner-operators, and over-the-road (OTR) haulers with an instant cash injection.
You can still accept new business, make payroll, purchase fuel, vehicle repairs and maintenance, and other expenses with AR Factoring. AR Factoring with Bankers Factoring is simple – we buy your invoices (A/R) and provide you with a cash advance the same day.
What is Freight Factoring?
Freight Factoring is when a load or haul is delivered to its destination. The transportation company then sells the invoice to Bankers Factoring. AR Factoring allows transportation companies to sell their accounts receivable as an asset to Bankers. We then instantly cash advance up to 90% of the total value.

Who qualifies for Freight A/R Factoring?
Suppose your transportation, trucking, or freight forwarding company has completed hauls for business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-government entities. In that case, we can help you close your cash gap.
AR Factoring enables freight companies to no longer wait 30, 60, or even 90 days to get paid. Instead, you benefit from an immediate cash injection by selling your invoices to Bankers Factoring without taking out a loan.
Not only do owner-operators, fleet companies, and brokers qualify for accounts receivable Factoring, but so do small businesses and entrepreneurs with poor credit and distressed financial situations.
A/R Factoring does not look at the business owner’s personal credit. Instead, Bankers Factoring analyzes your customer creditworthiness since we are buying their invoices.

Trucking Factoring FAQ
Why should my company factor its invoices?
Accounts receivable Factoring provides an immediate source of cash. AR Factoring eliminates the waiting period for payment after the haul is delivered.
How are rates determined?
AR Factoring rates determine the overall associated risk of the invoices. Some main factors include total monthly volume, average invoice amount, average time for customer payments, and portfolio of companies comprising the A/R asset.
What is the difference between recourse and non-recourse factoring?
In non-recourse Factoring, Bankers Factoring provides credit protection, covering if your customer fails to pay. Conversely, in recourse factoring, the client who sells their invoices is responsible for non-payment.
Are there other benefits besides fast cash?
With Bankers Factoring, we provide a total A/R management solution. Our 24/7 online reporting portal gives our clients access to their inflows. We provide back-office support by managing the receivables process and evaluating the credit of your accounts.
Is AR Factoring different from a bank loan?
Yes! With accounts receivable Factoring, you are selling your invoices. With a bank loan, you receive money that needs to be paid back over time. AR Factoring is not debt on your balance sheet; it is a cash flow solution, and you only pay the factoring fee.
