Trucking is a race against the clock. No matter the cargo, the trucker faces constant pressure to navigate traffic snarls, avoid highway closures, overcome mechanical problems, and stay awake and alert to deliver their load at the contracted time. But as all truckers know, that’s only part of the story. There’s a lot more to the trucking business than what you see on the open road.
Just as the driver’s truck runs on diesel fuel, the owner’s company runs on cash flow. Whenever a customer is slow to pay their invoice, it’s a troublesome pothole in the trucking company’s cash flow. Get enough of these slow-payers and the result is the trucking firm’s ability to pay its own bills and its employees can grind to a halt.
Smaller trucking companies are especially at risk to cash flow problems. They have fewer trucks on the road, so the small profit margins prevalent throughout the industry hit them harder. A two- or three-truck operation can face real trouble when one of those trucks breaks down unexpectedly. Add several slow-paying customers into the mix and suddenly the firm is confronting a serious cash flow problem at a time when they need funds the most.
Has this happened to your trucking company? Are you currently struggling with slow-paying customers not taking care of their invoices in a timely manner? Are you looking for a solution that will enable you to improve your cash flow and keep cordial relations with your customers?
