Is Freight Factoring Worth it?

Freight factoring is worth it in nearly every application for trucking companies. Freight factoring is a worthwhile investment for your trucking company and for many reasons. In this article, we’ll cover the benefits of freight factoring. Let’s dive in!


What is Freight Factoring?

Freight factoring is when a factoring company purchases your invoice, typically for a small percentage of the total, in exchange for faster payment. 


There are two types of freight factoring: 

Non-Recourse and Recourse Factoring. 


Non-Recourse Factoring

The first type of factoring is arguably the best factoring method. Non-recourse freight factoring is when a factoring company purchases your invoice and holds the majority of risk for unpaid invoices. This means that if your customer does not pay an invoice, you’re not going to be responsible for that payment.

Recourse Factoring

Unlike non recourse factoring, in recourse factoring you carry all the risk. Recourse factoring does work similarly in that you still get paid quickly.


Recourse factoring is not a great idea for any business. When looking for a freight factoring company, be sure to NOT use a recourse factoring company, as it will tend to come with the risk and several various fees and contractual agreements.
