Using a trucking factoring company is basically a quick way to get cash from your receivables. Trucking factoring is not a loan. When you give your customers an invoice, they usually have 30 days to pay you back.
Invoice factoring companies will purchase those invoices and give you the bulk of the cash up front, sometimes within 24 hours, and collect the payments from your customers themselves. Once the invoices are paid in full, you’ll get the balance left over, minus a small fee. Trucking factoring doesn't require debt.
Even fewer can say a majority of their new trucking factoring business comes from client referrals. Our clients are happy! We give you much more than just funding. We also give you back your time.
We know that more and more these days customers are stretching payments, some because they can, others because they are struggling. And you’re not too happy about it because you also have bills to pay. Like most trucking fleet owners, you probably first went to a bank for help. Only to find the process too slow and complicated.
So instead of focusing on other crucial aspects of your trucking company, you're stuck chasing down your customers for payment. We know that’s a time wasting and very frustrating process.
Meanwhile you have drivers and staff to pay, as well as fuel, truck payments, tires, repairs, truck maintenance, insurance and many other expenses to keep your trucking business going. You are in a money-centric business. Everything is money.

We have your company's best interests and success in mind. Other trucking factoring companies may not be in it for the long haul and every step of your company's journey. For example, some trucking factoring companies will continue to purchase your freight bills because they don’t have the ability to see trouble ahead. You could end up buying back freight bills from customers who could have been avoided in the first place.
We operate differently than the others. Our purpose is to build a strong relationship with you and protect your company against risky customers, keeping your trucking business profitable.
We have credit experts and current payment data to spot early payment trends to help protect your company from taking losses on customers who may be heading into bankruptcy or brokers who can simply disappear overnight. Other trucking factoring companies may not monitor these situations as carefully to protect you.We Fund More than Long Haul Over the Road Carriers
We have helped a wide range of trucking companies including intermodal and dump trucks. So long as your customer’s are creditworthy, we can fund bills to brokers, shippers, steamship lines, freight forwarders, construction companies and more.
“I made the mistake of not credit checking a load and by the time I turned it into my factor (not OCC) the brokerage was out of business. My factor (not OCC) understandably wouldn’t fund it so I was left not knowing what to do.
I turned to my friend Mike for advice and he referred me to his factor, Maria at OCC. Maria reviewed my paperwork and explained step by step what I needed to do including outlining who to contact, what numbers to reference and what I needed to ask.
She carefully explained the pros and cons of different options such as collecting on a bond or pursuing collections and how that might affect my relationship with the shipper and receiver moving forward. I really appreciated Maria taking the time to do that when I wasn’t even her client. I could see that they really care and understand how big a $4,500 loss is to any trucking company.”
How Factoring Works
So how does our trucking factoring company program work? Unlike a bank we focus on the strength of your customer's credit and their ability to pay their bills, not yours. We charge a small fee for our factoring service, but there’s no debt and no interest. The factoring process is online and designed to be as easy as possible so that your business can thrive.
Once you are setup for factoring you get funded in 3 easy steps. First, you deliver the load. Next, you send us your invoice, bill of lading and rate confirmation. Upon verification your freight bill proceeds are sent to you, typically within 24 hours for returning customers. We’ll send your freight bill to your customer as well as collect the payment from your customer according to the payment terms such as 30 days.
We also provide you with free back-office support and manage your collections on freight bills that you factored for your trucking company. Your company gets online access to lookup your customer's payments. You know the status of every freight bill at the click of a mouse. That’s it!Additional Features of our Trucking Factoring Program Include:

“We’ve been with OCC since 2003. From the initial contact and interaction with Bob in Sales, our experience with OCC has been genuine and honest. Bob was true to his word. What he sold is what came to fruition. It was like nothing we had ever experienced before. OCC provides us with peace of mind in knowing that we have daily cash flow for our business.
We submit invoices daily using the scanning program, which we find to be very quick and easy to use, and know with confidence when we submit invoices that OCC will provide the funding that same day. Maria, Isabel, Leslie, Tiffany and everyone in Operations has been fantastic to work with. I know when I call, they are going to answer and address my needs immediately. They customized their process to fit our needs, and that’s so valuable to us.
OCC is truly a godsend to our business. I am tickled to be able to brag about OCC and highly recommend them to anyone looking for an honest factoring partner they can rely on.”
