Interstate Capital Launches New Web Site at TIA Conference in San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO, March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tony Furman, president of Interstate Capital Corporation (ICC), announced today the unveiling of ICC's newest website, http://www.FreeMCAuthority.com at the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) Conference and Trade Show in San Antonio on March 22(nd) and March 23, 2012. The TIA is the professional organization of the $162 billion third-party logistics industry.
By launching FreeMCAuthority.com at the TIA trade show, Interstate Capital plans to capture the attention of new motor carriers and owner-operators hoping to establish relationships with freight brokers and 3PLs attending the trade show. FreeMCAuthority.com is a division of Check Freight Broker, LLC (CFB), the world's largest 100% free freight matching site.
According to Mr. Furman, "One of the most difficult challenges for small motor carriers and owner-operators is coming up with funding to bind insurance coverage. Most policies require a 20% down payment, amounting to around $2,000 per truck. FreeMCAuthority.com offers competitive trucking insurance options that require no out-of-pocket investment, allowing the small operator to keep that $2,000 in his pocket as an extra cushion of cash in case of emergency. Our partner, Interstate Trucking Alliance, is a licensed insurance broker, able to quote insurance in all 50 states."
In addition to binding insurance with zero out-of-pocket cash, FreeMCAuthority.com also prepares interstate MC authority applications for FREE right from its web site. Most competing sites charge a minimum of $75 to prepare the application, plus require the applicant to purchase other bundled services that can cost thousands of dollars. FreeMCAuthority.com saw a need for a simple, FREE alternative to those sites, where the owner-operator just starting out can receive expert guidance by a licensed trucking insurance broker and pay only the $300 mandatory federal filing fee.
CFB is a wholly owned subsidiary of Interstate Capital Corp., a factoring company specializing in freight bill funding and fuel advances for owner-operators and motor carriers. Factoring companies provide working capital for trucking and other companies by advancing funds against freight bills and invoices. From CheckFreightBroker.com, motor carriers are able to search for freight, obtain fuel advances when loaded, and receive 100% funding upon delivery without ever leaving the site. CFB has posted over 6 million loads for thousands of freight brokers and has membership numbering in the tens of thousands of trucks. Interstate Capital and CFB are members of the International Factoring Association (IFA) and the TIA.
