Humble, TX (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
Paymax Carrier Services (Paymax) has launched a new service which makes it easier to start, operate and grow a trucking business. Truckers can fax their freight bills to Paymax and receive instant payments for the loads they haul. Paymax also provides free invoicing services, complete risk protection against slow-paying customers and discounts on diesel fuel. Trucking companies of all sizes can set up accounts for free at http://www.paymaxcash.com.
“Independent trucking companies and owner operators need a simple way to get paid for their freight bills. We provide instant cash without creating debt,” remarked Paymax spokesman Michael Dobbie. “With Paymax, truckers get paid the same day they deliver their loads, plus we handle all of the invoicing and collections for free.”
The timing of the launch couldn't be better. The trucking industry is facing an acute driver shortage, and it's getting worse. Experts predict a shortage of over 200,000 drivers by the end of 2012. As a result, shippers and transportation brokers are increasing the freight rates they pay to truckers. Still, there are more loads available for truckers to haul today than there have been for years.
Entrepreneurs see rising truckload rates and high availability of freight as exciting opportunities. They are pushing hard to start new trucking businesses, add trucks to fleets and hire more people. Unfortunately, credit problems often get in the way, and most new ventures have failed due to a lack of working capital.
Conventional lenders have been slow to grant credit to trucking businesses. Many expansion plans have not succeeded because lenders have refused to finance working capital, even if the trucking businesses were already profitable.
To address these issues, Paymax promises a different approach that will encourage truckers to grow existing businesses and to start new ones. All trucking companies can create a Paymax account for free; without a credit check. Instead of facing a lengthy credit review, businesses can receive funding instantly.
“If you are looking for work or are interested in starting a new trucking business, we want you to know that Paymax can help you,” said Dobbie. “We are here to make it easier for trucking companies to do business, and to help owners get the benefits they deserve.”
