Our standard rate is 3.5% of the gross load rate. We offer a complimentary 2.5% rate on your first load with us. We do not take any hidden commission such as set-up, minimum amount, credit check or transaction fees.
Once we process your docs, we will pay you through an ACH deposit. Normally we process within a few hours. However, the time it takes for money to hit your account depends on your bank.
We cover all valid loads. However, we reserve the right to reject a load, for example, when the docs are 3-month old. We do not require any volume commitment – you can factor as many loads as you like.
Non-recourse means we handle all collections on loads that are moved through InstaPay. We help you focus on what matters by offering a transparent and hassle-free service.

Scope of Trucker Path Services. Trucker Path will provide the InstaPay service (“InstaPay”),a factoring payment service per load if Carrier offers a load and Trucker Path accepts such load. Such payment services include where Carrier assigns the invoice, or instructs the debtor to pay Trucker Path instead of Carrier, then Trucker Path will pay Carrier for accepted loads by initiating an ACH transfer within forty-eight (48) hours of receipt of an accepted Bill of Lading and any other documents reasonably required to perfect Trucker Path’s rights to the invoice. If Carrier meets all its obligations under this Agreement, then payment is offered to Carrier with no-recourse to Carrier for any non-payment or payment delay from Freight Broker to Trucker Path, provided however such non-payment or payment delay is not due to an act or omission by Carrier.
If Carrier is an existing InstaPay user, and Carrier qualifies, which qualification shall be solely in Trucker Path discretion, Carrier may be offered InstaPay Fuel Advance. InstaPay Fuel Advance is only available on the load rate specified on the rate confirmation and is exclusive of any detention, lumper, or other trip charges (the “Gross Load Rate”). InstaPay Fuel Advance is available for same day processing of up to 45% of the Gross Load Rate upon receipt of a valid rate confirmation prior to 08:00 AM Central Time. Trucker Path will make commercially reasonable efforts to enable Carrier to receive funds in the same business day. So long as Carrier is in good standing, at Trucker Path’s discretion, all processing fees are deducted from the balance of payment for the load which must be processed through InstaPay.
Trucker Path reserves the right not accept any load, from any Carrier, for any reason. You will receive confirmation of approval to use InstaPay, sent by email, within five (5) business days of receipt by Trucker Path of Carrier’s executed Agreement and completed corresponding onboarding documents. It is Carrier’s responsibility to verify that Trucker Path has approved your load. Absent express approval to use InstaPay, and InstaPay Fuel Advance if applicable, Trucker Path has no obligation to Carrier. Trucker Path reserves the right to withdraw approval to use InstaPay at any time, for any reason.
Trucker Path Responsibilities. Trucker Path shall not request or in any way pressure Carrier to violate any federal, state or other applicable law with regards to the performance of the Services.

Carrier agrees to maintain all proper licenses and permits to conduct business as a motor carrier in the areas of intended operation and agrees to maintain liability and cargo insurance at the amounts set forth by the home state of the carrier and all U.S. Law. Trucker Path will be held harmless, and Carrier shall indemnify Trucker Path for same, in the event of any and all claims arising out of Carriers failure to adhere to its responsibilities herein. Carrier agrees to provide all documents as required by the Service, and acknowledges such document requirements may change at any time. Carrier agrees it will not encumber in anyway any rate confirmation, bill of lading, right to payment, or invoice (collectively “Invoices”) for which InstaPay or InstaPay Fuel Advances are offered, and warrants and represents that there are no prior claims, rights or interests in said Invoices. Carrier agrees not to offer a load for InstaPay wherein the Invoice for that load is restricted from being assigned, and any such offer shall be null and void.
