Welcome to 2020! It’s a new year, a new decade, and there are tons of new opportunities waiting for you and your trucking company. But if you’re planning on continuing to wait the 30, 60, or even 90 days to get your freight bills paid, we can’t help but wonder why? Taking risks is necessary in business but getting paid shouldn’t be one of them. When you’re waiting to get your invoices paid, it creates an imbalance for your trucking company’s cash flow. Your truck drivers need to get paid and your truck still needs fuel. So, if you aren’t getting paid fast where is that money coming from? Credit cards? Cash reserves? That will only work for so long.
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.
Money, cash, bills, notes, or capital. Call it whatever you want, the cold hard truth is that we all need it. Cash flow keeps the doors of your trucking company open and the freight moving.

As a freight factoring company, we’ve helped trucking companies solve cash flow problems for nearly 25 years, so let us share some of the biggest causes and give you options to help avoid or solve them.
