What is Freight Factoring?

Freight factoring (also known as: accounts receivable factoring or invoice factoring) is the process of selling your unpaid invoices to a factoring company. The factoring company then pays you immediately, and takes on the financial risk of waiting to be paid by your customer. The use of freight factoring is helpful by generating immediate cash – allowing you to focus on growing your company, not about getting paid.

is freight factoring a loan?

Freight Factoring is not a loan. We simply take over your open accounts receivable and collect on them for you for a small fee. 

can i have more than one factoring company?

You can not have more than one factoring company. This is due to your customers knowing who to pay on your invoices if they have been factored. 

do i have to factor every load?

Of course not! PDM gives you the freedom to pick and choose which loads you want to factor. We do ask that once you factor an account, you continue to factor all invoices associated with that account – this helps your customer with payments. 

is pdm freight factoring recourse or non-recourse?

Factoring isn’t “one size fits all”. We offer both recourse and non-recourse agreements in order to best fit your needs. 

besides instant payment, what is another benefit of factoring?

Using PDM’s freight factoring services comes with many additional benefits like free billing, free collection services, and free broker credit checks. 

what are the requirements to factor with PDM?

PDM does not require a personal credit or background check in order to approve you for our factoring services. Sign up is completely free and only takes about 10 minutes. 

what is a factoring rate application?

Some factoring companies must have a completed “rate application” before being able to provide you with your factoring rate. PDM Financial does not require an application and does not advise completing rate applications. Some rate applications are used to pull personal/business credit, run background checks, and file unnecessary liens against your company.
