Personal Account Manager
You’re more than just a number at Apex. It seems to us that if people are going to trust a factor with their business, that factor ought to have the decency to learn their names or least answer the phone when they call. That might be a rarity these days, but not to us. We provide you with a dedicated personal account manager to help you build your business. We’re here to help.
24/7 Online Account Access
Your finances are important to you. What’s even more important is being able to see the status of your account at any time. Apex makes that easy. When you submit invoices to Apex you know exactly how much you’ll receive, what fees will be applied, and what will go into your reserve each and every time. Your account is constantly updated with new information. Many factors don’t provide detailed reports, which leaves the client completely unaware of his financial situation. This is how companies go out of business. How can you run your business if you don’t know how much money you have or know exactly what fees you’re being charged?
Free Credit & Collections
Thousands of new broker authorities are issued each year. Most small fleet owners don’t have the financial resources to subscribe to a credit reporting agency and others don’t have the experience to know or understand how to analyze credit. Failing to check credit and establish limits for your customers, whether brokers or shippers, is perhaps the single largest cause of the demise of small trucking fleets.
We have the best credit system in the trucking industry along with credit experts on staff. It’s the Apex Advantage.
