Axle is the only integrated payments, collections, and financing solution for small freight brokers.
Axle helps small freight brokers pay their carriers on time by purchasing their accounts receivable at a discount. Factoring is a highly fragmented, $100B+ industry, but traditional factors typically shy away from servicing small freight brokers because they have higher risk profiles and introduce more operational overhead. Axle, however, is able to profitably service this segment by using software to automate our operations and introducing more sophisticated risk management technology.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

Axle is undercutting prices, while extending credit to under-serviced customer segments, by building software to automate our operations, using a more sophisticated underwriting approach that incorporates non-traditional data sources, and implementing a data-driven fraud detection system.
