Cash-Strapped Transportation Companies Find Relief Through Factoring

Milton, Canada (PressExposure) April 24, 2008 -- The Transportation Software Company Inc. and Interstate Capital Corp. are pleased to announce the TSC Financial Services Factoring Program, a unique initiative that provides capital to transportation companies of all sizes. The program offers some of the lowest factoring rates and the highest advances in the industry.

Factoring has become one of the fastest growing sources of capital in the world. In fact, The International Factoring Association estimates that well over $100 billion in invoices are factored annually in North America alone. In recent years, factoring has played an ever-increasing role in the transportation industry, often replacing traditional financing methods such as bank loans and lines of credit. Whether it is a small carrier with just a few invoices to factor each month or a large organization with hundreds of factorable invoices, factoring is a great financial vehicle to help companies grow and prosper.

One of the most important factors in creating, maintaining and growing a successful business is the need for working capital, commonly referred to as CASH. This is especially true in capital intensive industries such as trucking where driver payroll, fuel, insurance and lease payments come due long before the corresponding payments are received 30, 60 or more days after the load is delivered, said Roy Thacker, CEO of The Transportation Software Company. Our program helps transportation company owners bridge that gap.

Tony Furman, President of Interstate Capital Corp. commented that, factoring has really come a long way in recent years. It has become a mainstream fixture in capital markets because credit decisions are based on creditworthiness of our client’s customers, not the financial position and history of their company. This gives us the flexibility to fund many companies that traditional lenders would not consider such as start-ups, rapid growth situations, and companies that have experienced temporary financial setbacks.
