Covenant Transport has expanded its agreement with Affiliated Computer Services for its drivers to scan their trip documents at any TripPak Truck Stop Scanning location, which are found at more than 525 truckstops across the country and are operated by ACS Expedited Solutions.
“Expanding our long-term relationship with ACS TripPak Services benefits our drivers and our customers,” says Richard Cribbs, chief financial officer for Covenant Transport, based in Chattanooga, Tenn. “Their flexibility and portfolio of services provide us with the ability to offer more choices to our drivers while continuing to utilize the back-office efficiency gains we have long enjoyed from their document processing services.”
Covenant drivers can select either the truckstop scanning, terminal scanning or drop box option as their document submission method. ACS says it provides value-added document management services for transactions, regardless of the document submission method chosen by the driver, and that with its scanning options, companies can have delivery of trip documents within minutes.
“Large carriers like Covenant benefit greatly from our truckstop scanning network because we not only provide the largest network, but also the most comprehensive solutions for managing transactions and document submission,” says Kelley Walkup, division vice president and general manager for ACS Expedited Solutions, based in Dallas. “We don’t concentrate on just being the largest — we focus on being the best at creating a better bottom line for customers by increasing cashflow and improving processes for carriers.”
