This is exactly the reason you hire an exceptional factoring company like Thunder Funding. We eliminate the wait-time and save you the trouble of collecting the money from your invoices. However, as a valued client, Thunder Funding encourages you to make good credit decisions. Based on the current credit conditions and financial stability of any shippers or broker BEFORE accepting a load.
