Cash flow is vital to sustaining operations and growing a trucking company.

Why Choose Us?

The law provides motor carriers with multiple avenues to collect freight charges.  Carriers can pursue shippers, consignees and owners of cargo.  If handled properly, carriers also have the right to file mechanic liens in construction projects and mineral liens against well sites.

Many collections companies outsource legal services, and they are unaware of these additional avenues of recovery.  They cannot file lawsuits to collect unpaid freight charges.   

They also charge contingency fees between 15-45% of recovery, plus costs, depending on how long the claim is pending.  They determine how aggressive they are in their collections’ efforts.  The more they delay the collections process, the greater their contingency fee
