Invoice Factoring for a New Breed of Transportation Companies


Like their long-range trucking counterparts, retail and grocery delivery companies may be able to speed up cash flow by factoring invoices, instead of waiting for e-commerce customers to pay.

Can Delivery Service Companies Factor Invoices?

Factoring helps companies speed up cash flow by giving them access to the working capital that would otherwise be locked up in customer invoices or promised payments.

Delivery service companies that are contracted to provide delivery services, and then are paid on terms by grocery stores, retailers, or e-commerce sellers may be able to expedite cash flow by factoring instead of waiting on these types of payments for 30, 60, 90 days or even longer.

Here’s how it works:

  • Delivery services are fulfilled over the course of a month. At the end of the month, a customer invoice is generated for the delivery services filled or a statement of earnings is issued.
  • On the same day the invoice is generated or an earnings statement is available, it is factored with us, and payment of up to 98% of the invoice amount (or earnings statement) is made by us to the delivery services company in return for a low fee (called a factoring fee). The factoring fee might be as low as 1%.
  • Once the invoice or earnings statement payment has been received, any amount held in reserve is also returned to the delivery services company.

How Invoice Factoring Benefits Delivery Companies

Many B2B service providers use invoice factoring to speed up cash flow. Delivery companies that invoice e-commerce or retail customers on a monthly or quarterly basis, and then wait on payments for 30 days or longer could reap many of the benefits of invoice factoring; such as expediting cash flow in order to:

  • Better align expenses and revenues

Much like temporary employment and staffing agencies, delivery service companies that hire and pay drivers often need to expend significant resources on hiring, training, payroll and benefits in advance of corresponding customer payments. Factoring invoices speeds up cash flow so that revenue needed to pay for these expenses comes in sooner. Factoring can be especially beneficial as a payroll funding resource to help ensure that cash is on hand adequate to fund payroll, keeping drivers, dispatchers and support staff happy and on the job.

  • Take on new business more quickly

Growing a transportation company that specializes in delivery services doesn’t just mean hiring drivers more quickly. The cost of new vehicles, fuel, tires, vehicle maintenance and repair as well as costs for marketing and advertising can be offset more easily by delivery companies that factor invoices instead of waiting weeks (or months) on customer payments.

  • Get new customers

In addition to the quality of service a delivery company provides, the payment terms it can offer new customers can play a big part in whether they land new clients. When a company factors invoices, they don’t have to worry about how quickly customer payments come in, so they can extend generous payment terms to clients as a marketing advantage.
