How Can a Fuel Advance Program Help my Trucking Business?

Posted by Steve Barthol on Wed, Aug 20, 2014 @ 07:55 AM

If you were to ask small to medium sized trucking companies what it is they consistently struggle with, the frequent answer would be covering fuel costs while on the road.

Late payment means less money to pay bills and cover operating costs. Filling up with fuel to deliver a load is a fundamental cost, which has to be covered in order to deliver the load. With the fuel advance program from Bay View Funding, the working capital needed to cover the cost of fuel can be obtained prior to load delivery.
