Factoring for Hot Shot Loads
Do you need factoring for your trucking company? No problem. We help hot shot carriers get paid for their freight bills within 24 hours. Whether you need cash for maintenance, repairs, gas or any other expense, we’ve got you covered with trucking factoring.
There are a lot of positives to hot shot hauling.
For starters, initial new-equipment costs are much less for hotshot truckers than class 8. Usually, hot shot haulers are delivering loads locally or regionally so the time they get to spend at home is longer than class 8 truckers. Also, hot shot truckers are often delivering loads at expedited speeds, meaning little to no wait time at the shippers and receivers.
Hotshot hauling also has its downfalls.
Maintenance may be required more often for hot shot haulers than class 8 truckers and the costs associated can add up. While it’s an advantage to be able to drive locally, the demand can be unpredictable and unstable at times. Another disadvantage to hotshot hauling includes building your client base. It can be stressful to find clients and loads to haul as an independent truck driver. If you’re experiencing any of these complications, invoice factoring can help improve your cash flow in times of difficulty.
How do I book hot shot loads?
o book hot shot loads, there are several steps you can take. First, you can begin by advertising your available truck on reputable load boards such as DAT. Make sure to provide all the necessary details, including your current location, preferred lanes, equipment specifications, and availability. If you want instant notifications when a suitable match becomes available, be sure to include an alert option in your posting.
Additionally, you can actively search for hot shot loads by utilizing the search functions on the load boards. Look for general or specific types of equipment that are needed for these loads, whether it’s for full or partial shipments.
By both posting your truck and actively searching for loads, you increase your chances of finding and booking hot shot loads that align with your availability and equipment specifications.
Turn Your Hot Shot Freight Bills into Instant Cash with Invoice Factoring
Hot shot trucking is all about fast timing. Customers hire hot shots when they need their freight in an expedited fashion. Waiting on a payment for 30-60 days can tremendously slow down your hauling process.
Luckily, invoice factoring can help. All you have to do is deliver the load, submit the invoices you wish to factor and wait for your cash advance. The invoice factoring process is helpful for cash flow problems caused by the need for maintenance, fuel or anything else. Rather than waiting on a payment from a customer, receive an advance on your invoices to strengthen your working capital.

Recourse and Non-Recourse Factoring for Hot Shot Trucking Companies
There are two types of factoring that hotshot truckers can choose from, recourse and non-recourse.
In a recourse factoring agreement, your trucking company is responsible for payment of the invoices that are not paid by your customers after a period of time. Recourse is the best option for truckers whose customers generally pay on time.
In a non-recourse factoring agreement, the factoring company assumes the risk of non-payment if your customer fails to pay the outstanding invoices. Although sometimes more expensive, non-recourse is often more desirable to truckers because it’s less risky. If you don’t want to take on the risk of liability, non-recourse hot shot factoring may be your best option.
