24/7 Factoring
After more than 25 years as a freight factoring leader, Apex Capital continues to revolutionize the industry. As the trucking industry continues to leverage technology to accelerate change, freight factors are being challenged to do the same. Apex, at the forefront of innovation, already created its own proprietary digital payment system with blynk™. Now comes 24/7 Factoring, which allows Apex clients to factor freight invoices after hours – nights, weekends, and bank holidays. Hauling loads for a living isn’t a 9-5 job, so factoring shouldn’t be.

This, however, isn’t the first time for the husband-and-wife team.

But now there is a new face behind the wheel of the #56 Apex Capital Porsche 911 GT3, which is supported by Topp Racing. Meet Kenny Murillo.

blynk™
We want fast. Sometimes fast isn’t fast enough, so we choose faster. That’s today’s society, gratification is expected at the speed of a click. In trucking, where most carriers are lucky if they get paid in 30 days for hauling a load, having that money super-fast is a necessity instead of a luxury. Because steady cash flow keeps a small to medium-sized trucking company in business, not to mention helps it grow. Today, truckers do have a choice. They can choose to get paid fast with a quick pay or the new blynk™ digital payment system for Apex Capital factoring clients. Confused about quick pay and blynk™? Let’s look at both and clear the air.

Trucking Industry
Remember the days of CB radio and public pay phones? Now we have cell phones and mobile apps. How about the days of mailing stacks and stacks of invoices so that you can get paid for hauling loads across the country? Now we have email and image capture. The trucking industry has changed in the last decade and technology has been at the forefront of that change. At Apex, we’ve worked diligently to stay proactive instead of reactive, especially when it comes to implementing technological advancements designed to improve efficiency for truckers. Our goal has always been to make the process of getting paid faster for truckers. Meet five Apex experts that have seen more than 10 years of technological changes in the trucking industry. They have stories to tell about the way things were 10 years ago, the way things are today, and thoughts on how things will be tomorrow.

From changing regulations, technology improvements, to changing marketplaces – we covered it all!
