About Lesson

Many carriers worry about not getting paid for their services. Even after successfully delivering the load, sometimes brokers fail to pay carriers for various reasons. This situation can leave them with significant financial losses amounting to thousands of dollars.

Non-payment results in a significant loss of net profit. The expenses have already been paid. What if you don't have the time or knowledge to collect your well-earned $2,500? That's the money you essentially gave away after working hard to earn it.

Therefore, if the payment for the shipment has not been received, it directly affects your financial resources. It is important to take proactive measures to prevent such situations. However, if a non-payment does occur, immediate action must be taken.

In this Lesson, we will focus on the most common reasons for non-payment of invoices and explore solutions that carriers can use to avoid significant financial losses.  By the end of this Lesson, you will have a clear understanding of how to effectively recover your well-deserved payment.

This lesson will help you understand how to get your well-deserved money back.
