The news is true, the number of truck drivers in the U.S. is steadily declining. However, freight transportation is still the most dominant mode of moving foods.
Trucking is responsible for over 70 percent of all domestic goods moved in the country.
Transporting goods via truck is also the most secure and reliable method. Cargo planes and barges occur more unexpected delays and problems than ordinary semi-trucks do. Unsightly weather or cold temperatures are more likely to delay non-ground transportation.
Ground transportation does, unfortunately, run into a different problem: steady funding. Driving long distances means gas, and gas means spending your own money to pay for it.
Thankfully, there is a solution — freight factoring.
Freight factoring is when you exchange your unpaid invoices for a cash advance. Never take money out of your own pocket again!
This helps ensure that those driving truck have enough money in the bank to pay for gas to get your goods where they need to be on time.
With that in mind, it’s clear that trucking will dominate the transportation market for years to come.
