TriumphPay’s Payment Network

Frictionless Transactions Solve Transportation Payments Invoice Inefficiencies

Several of the Nation’s Largest Freight Brokers, Shippers, Factors and Carriers Join The Network: Frictionless Transactions to Solve Transportation Industry’s Invoicing Inefficiencies

DALLAS, Mar. 3, 2022 — TriumphPay, a division of TBK Bank, SSB, today announced a significant milestone in the buildout of the transportation industry’s first payments network, enabling seamless payment transactions for carriers, brokers, shippers and factors. In early January, the network demonstrated a successful beta phase where TriumphPay completed a series of conforming transactions between two TriumphPay-enabled payors (a freight broker or shipper) and five fully TriumphPay-enabled payees (a carrier or its factoring company).

“TriumphPay is working to revolutionize the transportation industry by creating a payments network that interconnects all parties in a transportation transaction, allowing the elimination of labor-intensive and time-consuming tasks, the mitigation of fraud and timely payments,” said Aaron P. Graft, chief executive officer of Triumph Bancorp, Inc. (Nasdaq: TBK). “With many of today’s consumers already accustomed to near-instantaneous B2C payments platforms, TriumphPay looks to provide that same solution for the transportation industry through access to a network that enables expedited payments securely and efficiently. The efficiencies achieved by the payments network give industry participants greater freedom and flexibility to grow their businesses.”

TriumphPay’s payments network, a first of its kind in the industry, brings transportation payments into the modern era by using integrated data interfaces and workflow solutions to connect freight brokers, shippers, factors and carriers, streamlining and automating invoice presentment, audit and payment. Using optical character recognition, machine learning and data integrations with core operating systems, TriumphPay helps freight companies and factors mitigate fraud, expedite the payment experience, and increase efficiency and automation.

“By partnering with factors and brokers to create structured invoices with immediate verification and  payment approvals, TriumphPay will give companies the access to data they need and the workflow that goes with it,” said Melissa Forman, SVP and chief strategy officer at TriumphPay. “TriumphPay provides the direct integration that allows the freight industry to make those payment decisions faster.”

After the successful beta phase, TriumphPay has scaled up the payments network to include 11 factors and 38 brokers, including three of the 10 largest factors and two of the 25 largest brokers, executing more than 18,030 network transactions since launch. These participants now execute payments on the network, providing transparency of the secure transaction between participants and allowing network members to increase efficiency and reduce invoice processing costs. In total, TriumphPay, with its previous acquisition of HubTran — now TriumphPay Audit — brings together 562 freight brokers and 70 factors.

Added Forman, “Brokers, factors and carriers have long needed a transparent, seamless and secure payments network to serve as the backbone of the industry – with TriumphPay, they now have that solution – today.”
