Smart Freight Funding’s Quick Pay Service makes it easy to get paid NEXT DAY with no hassles or obligations!

Smart Freight Funding is the premier factoring service in the bulk transportation industry that saw the need for a quick pay service that didn't bind carriers to contracts or outrageous fees. We remove the headache of paperwork for carriers by handling the billing and payment process that can sometimes prevent their trucks from moving forward.

We believe carriers are the backbone of America, therefore we work with every operation from single truck owner operators to large fleets managing multiple tractor trailers. We pay via ACH direct deposit within 24 hours and offer competitive rates as low as 2.5% with NO contracts, NO hidden fees, and NO reserves. Truly a “no-strings-attached” service.

Our team, which is located in the heart of Omaha, NE, consists of twelve individuals that have a combined experience of over 50 years in the transportation industry. Customer service is our #1 priority because while working in various fields of transportation and logistics, the founding team of Smart Freight Funding saw a great need to get carriers paid quickly and back on the road. After all, carriers are the ones that keep America moving.

If your company is running that tight on money, you are prolonging the inevitable! There is no reason to give away a percentage of your freight when rates are not great in the first place!

I don't believe in quick pay or factoring!

Are your running dedicated lanes?

Absolutely! A line of credit from your bank is a much better situation than quick pays and faactoring. The only time I considered factoring was when my best customer at the time was using ReTrans as their third party billing service. ReTrans was paying extremely late time and time again. Like 60+ days late! After a month, it would not be uncommon to have over 30k in open invoices. I decided to look into factoring just to give myself piece of mind in case ReTrans (or their owners Kuehne Nagel) went under and beat me on my money. I quickly learned that on the surface factoring looks like a fair deal but once you READ the fine print (ALL OF IT) you begin to get the total ugly picture.
