Love’s offers AscendTMS free to its factoring customers

Love’s Family of Companies has signed a co-marketing agreement with InMotion Global to make available to all its factoring customers the AscendTMS transportation management system software at no cost.

The agreement will give all Love’s Financial customers access to a full premium subscription of the AscendTMS for free. This includes carriers, freight brokers and third-party logistics providers, the companies said in a joint release.

“AscendTMS is already the most widely used TMS software in North America,” said Tim Higham, president of AscendTMS. “AscendTMS software will run the entire trucking or logistics operations of any carrier or freight broker, and the joint customer can directly access Love’s Financial funding services from within the TMS software itself.”

AscendTMS offers a full suite of technologies to run a business. According to the company, users of the TMS can track daily freight movements, search real-time loads from major load boards, manage driver pre-planning, dispatch, driver tracking, electronic logging device integration, driver texting, document management, accounting, dynamic reporting, factoring, asset management, driver pay, asset maintenance and alerts, IFTA reporting, and driver qualification. There is also a shipper directory with shipper credit scores.

“Our goal has always been to provide a high-level of technical software advantage to customers that makes running their business easier – and at 95% less cost with no required technical expertise. This joint Love’s and AscendTMS offering provides a solution for companies that wish to lower costs, increase profits and to find better freight, and to do it all electronically,” said Higham.

Love’s Financial recently expanded with the acquisitions of Vero Business Capital and Foley Business Capital. Love’s Financial customers have access to the factoring business as well as fuel discounts, tires, maintenance services and no-fee credit lines with a Love’s Express Card.

To receive the free AscendTMS, users need to visit and create an AscendTMS account. Within 30 days, the user must send an email to with proof they are a Love’s Financial Customer to get access for one year.
