The Challenge

Financial issues such as insufficient cash flow and slow driver payments can be roadblocks to the viability of any fledgling trucking company. Securing financial assistance and establishing an open and honest relationship with vendors and customers can help accelerate success.

With more than 30 years of combined industry experience, and a policy of honest and trustworthy service, John Werner and Brenda Jones set out on their own. In May 2006, with 10 tractors and trailers, they launched Werner, LLC, a Burnsville, Miss.-based trucking company with the capacity for general commodities and super loads throughout North America and Latin America.
Werner was one of an estimated 20,000 newly licensed trucking authorities that launched in the U.S. in 2006.

The Solution

Working with a transportation finance company can help new trucking businesses with timely payments to drivers, which improves the company’s credit and helps it attract the best drivers to haul freight. Bibby Transportation Finance (BTF) supported all the brokerage and transportation finance operations for Werner. With the ability to tailor products and make quick financing decisions for its clients, the company helped Werner surpass earnings estimates and maintain strong customer relationships.

“One of our biggest clients was slow to pay, but thanks to Bibby Transportation Finance, we were able to work with them and let BTF handle the billing across borders,” said Jones in reference to a South American client with shipping needs in the United States.
“The entire billing process was so smooth,” Jones continued. “As soon as we received a bill from a leased driver, it went straight to BTF, and they funded us immediately. They then followed up with our customers to secure payment.”
“Compliance with the Department of Transportation is the main concern of all trucking outfits,” said Jones. “Bibby Transportation Finance offers fuel tax reporting, driver log auditing and more to help us and companies like us stay on the right track.”

The Result

What helped Werner, in addition to the strong background the founders brought to the company, was its ability to obtain the best trucks to carry clients’ loads. Honesty, timely payments and a strong fiduciary relationship with Bibby Transportation Finance helped the company thrive. Jones appreciated the responsiveness and personal touch her company received from BTF.

“It was evident that Bibby Transportation Finance really cared about us and wanted us to succeed,” she added. “We founded our company on the same policies of open and honest dealings, so I appreciate that very much.”
Bibby Transportation Finance has made a name for itself by helping companies with special industry needs meet their financial obligations. Because of peaks and valleys in the needs of companies and other variables such as fluctuating fuel cost, trucking firms can benefit from the trusted solutions BTF provides.
