ComFreight has married invoice factoring tools directly with an application for finding loads or finding trucks. ComFreight is the first fully digital and integrated invoice factoring tool (Quick Pay) and freight matching load board that is hosted in the cloud. ComFreight enables approved carriers to upload bills of lading and invoices to request payment advances from any device in real time. ComFreight also empowers approved freight brokers and shippers to be able to offer carriers and truckers in their network payments within 1 hour of delivery at no additional cost.

ComFreight has integrated a fully digital invoice factoring process with the load finding process by developing an easy to use web app and mobile app. ComFreight’s advanced load board and freight marketplace also enables companies to post their loads to a large marketplace of carriers and trucking companies to get bids and find trucks in real time. This means carriers get easier, faster payments on invoices from the same convenient tool that they are already using to find new loads to haul.

The ComFreight booth at the Great American Trucking show will allow you to try this revolutionary software and app first hand. Here’s what you should look forward to when you visit our booth!

  • Try searching for live loads on the ComFreight load matching web and mobile apps
  • Try uploading or scanning a bill of lading or invoice right from a smartphone or desktop
  • Try the process submitting a payment request and seeing funds transfer in real time

How does ComFreight work for Carriers?

  • Carriers can either post their empty truck space or search loads to find load matches.
  • Carriers who become Quick Pay factoring clients get full access to all app features for free.
  • Quick Pay enables carriers to scan or upload bills of lading and receive advances in real time.

How does ComFreight work for Shippers?

  • A shipper joins for free and then posts their loads using the ComFreight web app.
  • Carriers and/or logistics companies are notified via an alert and can submit bids.
  • The shipper can then accept a bid digitally and request a pick up from any device.

How does ComFreight work for Brokers?

  • Brokers can post loads that they have available via the web app to get bids or calls.
  • Brokers can elect to get direct calls from carriers or receive bids or a combination of both.
  • Approved brokers can also offer Quick Pay options to their network of contracted carriers.

Our goal at ComFreight is to provide the most seamless and easy access to rapid payments on your invoices and the best load finding tools to all carriers who are using our web or mobile app. We want the process of running your business to be enjoyable, less stressful and more rewarding.
