Back Load Protect - essential protection for hauliers against bad debt

With reduced domestic demand, increased competition and shrinking margins, hauliers are looking further afield for business. This brings new risks to a business that need to be protected. Back Load Protect services include:

  • Credit checking new international and domestic clients, particularly for groupage and back load work
  • • Providing outsourced credit control and invoice chasing in your name and in the language of your customer as required
  • • Managing the entire legal recovery process should it be necessary - again UK and international - typically on a no win/no fee basis

We understand and manage the creditworthiness of new customers. The information and advice we provide is invaluable when deciding if and how to trade with them. We also stay close to your customers whilst the invoice is outstanding using our skills and experience, taking the hassle, uncertainty and frustration away. If need be, we contact our debt collection division to move quickly and get overdue debts paid.

  • • Fully identified and quantified customer credit risk, clearly explained and understood

Client testimonial

"We were having real issues setting credit limits, partly due to knowledge and partly due to a lack of confidence. We realised that we couldn’t grow our customer base and business without taking risks, but we didn’t know how to properly manage that credit risk. Bringing Octempo on board has been a real eye opener and allowed us to drive sales knowing that professionals were managing the credit risk."

"The first time I used Octempo we were a very small business with a turnover of just £75k, but immediately I was impressed by the way they took care of us. We didn’t have the first clue about credit risk and they spent a lot of time explaining what they were doing, as well as getting on with it. As the business has grown, Octempo have been right alongside us as an invaluable partner. I think the most impressive contribution they make is managing credit risk so we can trade profitably and confidently with higher risk customers – an absolute godsend in a recession."
