  4. The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association, or ELFA, revealed its top 10 Equipment Acquisition Trends for 2016. It is estimated that U.S. businesses, nonprofits and government agencies will spend over $1.6 trillion in capital goods or fixed business investment (including software) this year, and financing a majority of those assets will be a common thread and impact a significant portion of the U.S. economy. ELFA forecasts the following Top 10 Equipment Acquisition Trends for 2016: U.S. investment in equipment and software will hit a new high, but moderate in growth as businesses hold back on spending. Business investment will reach a new all-time high level, but after a sustained period of increasing as a share of GDP, the equipment investment cycle has likely peaked. Manufacturing weakness, global uncertainty and low oil prices that have discouraged businesses from spending will further moderate investment growth rates. End of zero interest rate policy will spur other businesses, particularly small businesses, to invest before rates go higher. After the first short-term interest rate increase in nearly 10 years, look for the Federal Reserve to act gradually to make additional rate increases throughout the year. As a result, businesses that may have been hesitant about…

  5. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics announced its December 2015 jobs report, and it is good news for the trucking industry. December experienced the largest job gain in more than two years for the transportation industry. The overall transportation industry sector added more than 23,000 jobs in December, which is the largest increase since November 2013 when more than 30,000 jobs were added to the economy. Overall, U.S. payrolls grew by 292,000, which is far more than analysts expected. The unemployment rate stayed at five percent. The truck transportation subsector experienced an increase of 5,300 jobs after it gained more than 2,000 in November and 400 in October. That increase to end 2015 is the most since last June when 7,400 jobs were created. The continued improvement in the nation’s employment picture is good news for trucking in that it means more people are working and buying good that are delivered by trucks. One of the main storylines in 2015 has been the driver shortage in the trucking industry. With total jobs increasing in the sector, it could be assumed that trucking companies are able to find drivers to hire. But if the transportations industry continues to…

  6. As the economy continues its rebounding with steady growth across multiple industries, small businesses throughout the country are feeling the positive effects. No industry is experiencing growth more than the trucking industry though. According to a report done by Sageworks, a financial analysis software company, trucking is now the fastest-growing small-business industry in the U.S. This comes at a time when many businesses are questioning the efficiency and costs of using trucking for freight. But according to the ATA American Trucking Trends 2015 – ATA’s (American Trucking Associations) annual compendium of data on the trucking industry’s size and performance – the trucking industry generated more than $700 billion in revenue for the first time ever in 2014. And as of May 31, general freight trucking has recorded an almost 25 percent uptick in sales over the last 12-month period. The trucking industry has seen such a positive swing in sales and demand that the industry is dealing with a shortage of 35,000 to 40,000 drivers according to ATA. Because of this shortage in drivers, more opportunities are available for small to mid-sized trucking businesses. Trucking is not the only industry benefiting from increased consumer spending and manufacturing. The building and…

  9. Management is daunting to say the least.  There are multiple pieces in the puzzle, and it isn’t a black or white solution especially when dealing with human workers. In construction, a manager must keep the project within budget, on time, and in accordance with numerous codes, laws, and guidelines.  With so many factors to align, efficiency is essential to making your job easier and more organized, which will directly affect the quality of the project itself as well as the profits made after completion. So, here are a few tips that we’ve gathered to help you complete your project efficiency and effectively. Know the codes It’s not as simple as finding a place and claiming to build an office building or house in that spot.  Each city and state will have different laws, rules, and codes to abide by so safety standards can be met and risk of injury or damage can be kept to a minimum. In Dallas, we have nine different codes to meet (all which can be found here), and it can be overwhelming if you don’t have project managers or specialty consultants to help you. Have a hierarchy structure It’s…

  10. Fleet Advantage has made public its second quarter 2016 Truck Lifecycle Data Index, TLDI, comparing all-in operating costs of early model Class 8 trucks to all-in operating costs of current model year replacements. Results from the research indicate that fleet operators can reduce costs by up to $18,816 by replacing a 2011 cab or $9,521 for a 2014 cab. The savings stem from better fuel efficiencies, up to 14 percent, and a reduction of maintenance and repair costs. Similarly, replacement for sleepers can bring in even greater savings, up to $19,432 for a 2011 model. Using data from Fleet Advantage’s Advanced Truck Lifecycle Administrative Analytics Software, the TLDI helps industry professionals identify when they should replace old trucks with newer models to help them save money. Source: Trucking News Online “It’s clear that upgrading to a new truck provides significant benefits for fleet managers looking to strengthen their bottom line, and that fleets utilizing a shorter vehicle lifecycle will secure a competitive advantage,” said Brian McMahon, data analyst at Fleet Advantage. “First-year savings are impressive and rise exponentially when multiplied across dozens of truck units.” Looking to…

  11. Back in March of this year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, issued its final rule that aims to protect workers from exposure to silica dust. OSHA worked with the Department of Labor to issue this new rule, which looks to reduce the allowed exposure to silica from 250 micrograms per cubic meter over an eight-hour period to 50 micrograms. The new standards just went into effect June 23. OSHA’s new rule also mandates that companies must record instances of worker exposure to silica and provide medical exams every three years to employees that are exposed to the substance for long enough periods. Employers are also required to develop a written silica exposure plan and deliver training. While this rule was implemented to increase the safety of construction works, their very industry has been at odds since the new standard was announced. In fact, the National Association of Home Builders, or NAHB, along with 25 other trade associations, formed the Construction Industry Safety Coalition, or CISC, to spearhead the campaign against this rule. The NAHB and CISC state that the rule presents disruptive operational and economic burdens. After the rule was announced, eight construction…

  12. The Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, has issued an Accounting Standards Update (ASU) that improves financial reporting. This updated requires timelier recording of credit losses on loans and other financial instruments held by financial institutions and other organizations. This ASU was put in place to make sure organizations measure all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions and reasonable and supportable forecasts. Financial institutions will be able to use forward-looking information to better inform their credit loss estimates. Many of the loss estimation techniques used today will still be permitted, but the inputs of those techniques will change to reflect the full amount of expected credit losses. “The new standard addresses concerns from a wide range of our stakeholders—including financial statement preparers and users—that the existing incurred loss approach provides insufficient information about an organization’s expected credit losses,” FASB Chair Russell G. Golden said. The ASU on credit losses will take effect for U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filers for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Read about the entire update here.

  13. Hot summer days present unique challenges to staying safe on the job site. Heat stress is increasingly being recognized for contributing to the rapid onset of fatigue, distraction, and mistakes. Here are some tips to keep in mind for your summer projects: Drink Plenty of Water: The average adult human body contains 50-65 percent water, meaning water is arguably the best hydrating beverage. Also, consider beverages with added electrolytes such as Gatorade, Powerade, or even coconut water. The additives make plain water more drinkable and provide the energy needed to replace depleted nutrients. Eat a Healthy Lunch: Junk food is commonly high in fat and preservatives, and it’s going to put extra stress on your digestive system. Instead, eat a lighter lunch and afternoon snack such as vegetable salads or fruits. Block the Sun: Whenever available, work in shaded areas or use canopies to avoid direct sun exposure, even if only temporary. Some shade is always better than none. Also, switch to wide brim hats or vented hats to help keep your head cool. Schedule Early Shifts: In locations where extreme heat occurs, consider rescheduling to work in cooler times of the day when possible. Can…

  14. The Senate Concurrent Resolution 40 (S.Con.Res.40) was recently introduced by Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), expressing opposition toward increasing the 12 percent Federal Excise Tax (FET) on heavy trucks and truck bodies, according to the NTEA. FET is imposed on the first retail sale of heavy-duty trucks, trailers, semitrailer chassis and bodies, and tractors – trucks with a gross vehicle weight rate (GVWR) of more than 33,000 pounds; tractors with a GVWR of more than 19,500 pounds and gross combined weight of 33,000 pounds or less when paired with a trailer or semitrailer; and trailers with a GVWR of more than 26,000 pounds. The funds derived from it are deposited in the Highway Trust Fund. The 12% FET, the highest federal ad valorem excise tax (based on the value of real estate or personal property), was first levied to help finance World War I. S.Con.Res.40 and H.Con.Res.33 help to educate members of Congress about FET-related problems and explain why it should not be increased. This complicated tax can deter business to purchase new tractors and trailers. No matter what piece of equipment you’re looking to acquire, Triumph Commercial Finance can help with equipment based financing solutions. We have the insight and…

  15. Wearing hard hats is a common practice in construction and essential to the safety of its workers. In 2015, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recorded over 25,000 injuries and as many as 36 deaths caused by construction accidents including falls, trench collapses and scaffold collapses. With data suggesting the dangers of a construction site, hard hats are increasingly more important to protecting workers, contractors and even supervisors on site. So, all workers are required to wear a hard hat on site but did you know that each color represents a different role? Here are the roles commonly associated with each color: White – Managers, engineers, foremen or supervisors Brown – Welders and workers for high heat applications Green – Safety inspector, but occasionally used for new workers Yellow – General laborers and earth-moving operators Blue – Carpenters, technical advisers, and temp workers Orange – Road crews, new employees, or visitors. Since there is no official standard, each site may not follow the same color guide. Sites for different projects also may use different color codes, so we recommend speaking with your site manager or supervisor to confirm. In addition to its unique color, each hard hat is further classified by its class and type found…

  16. President Obama’s budget for fiscal-year 2017 arrived in Congress in February. The proposal, which still needs to be voted on, would boost total spending by 4.9 percent, with most of that going towards programs such as social security and interest payments on the national debt. The budget is filled with minus signs for federal construction programs for 2017, including General Services Administration new buildings, Army Corps of Engineers civil works and Environmental Protection Agency water infrastructure. However, there are offsetting increases in the construction sector, which includes highway and transit programs tracking the 2017 provisions of the recently-approved FAST Act. According to the Associated General Contractors of America, the fiscal year 2017 budget includes a total of $141 billion for construction programs, which is up about 14 percent from the $123.9 billion that was included in the fiscal year 2016 budget. The administration’s budget includes: $759 million for the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Headquarters consolidation project $267 million to deliver new headquarters for the Federal Emergency Management Agency $248 million to complete the modernization of the Calexico, Calif. U.S. Land Port of Entry $10 billion a year to boost construction of new transit projects and $7 billion a year for…

  17. The tonnage shipped by the trucking business rose to an all-time high in February, with rates for truckload shipments up ticking slightly from a year ago. The American Trucking Associations’ seasonally-adjusted truck tonnage index rose 7.2 percent in February from a month earlier.* ATA’s chief economist attributed February’s strong volumes to shippers playing “catch-up” after winter storms in January held up some shipments. Many analysts had predicted a lackluster 2016 for the freight business, especially in the first half of the year. But many have noted that last month’s strong volumes are encouraging. A monthly report by Cass Information Systems Inc. showed that per-mile truckload rates were 0.5 percent higher this February as compared to the same time last year. But overall the rates were down month-to-month, reaching their lowest point since last summer. Cass analysts attributed the decline to softening demand and overcapacity in the truckload market. Many national carriers are doing well, however, smaller regional carriers are losing market share. Triumph provides carriers of all sizes with the financial resources they specifically need for their business. Triumph Commercial Finance specializes in equipment-based lending for the transportation industry. They know the ins and outs of your business and have…

  18. Even when a manufacturing company has a healthy asset position and is profitable, they can have liquidity problems with insufficient working capital. Working capital represents the short-term assets available to a business to meet financial obligations. But because supplier and production expenses are often required to be paid several months before goods are actually sold to customers, manufacturing companies often deal with working capital challenges. So how are companies dealing with the challenges of current assets being less than current liabilities? Many manufacturing companies are turning to asset financing, or asset-based lending. An ongoing challenge for any manufacturing business is to alleviate the delayed timing between spending resources for producing goods and receiving payment when those products are sold. Even when a sale is made, the manufacturer may not get the payment immediately. Extended payment terms and slow-paying customers both translate to a potential cash-flow shortfall until payments are received. The accounts receivable represent funds that are due to a business but are currently unpaid. In Triumph Commercial Finance’s eyes, the accounts receivable are assets with real value. Asset-based lending allows manufacturers to receive funds from their accounts receivable before the customer has paid. This can be a timely solution…

  19. Introduction to new lease accounting rule A new rule was passed by the Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, Wednesday, November 12, when they approved a new lease accounting rule that will increase the amount of liability companies must report on their balance sheets. Those that lease equipment must now report all long-term operating leases on the balance sheet at the present value of the expected future lease payments. The approved change is scheduled to take effect for public companies in December, 2018, and private companies in December, 2019. The goal of this new rule is to provide more accurate financial statements, while increasing transparency surrounding the accounting of a company’s leases. While companies are already required to disclose lease commitments, they currently only have to put them in the footnotes of financial statements. The new rule would require that the obligations are included in companies’ balance sheets. This rule, which could ultimately impact the financial results of many companies around the country, begs the question: “Is leasing equipment smart for your company, or should you strictly focus on financing the purchase of new equipment?” This paper will explore the specific changes of the new rule, while explaining the possible…
