Pegasus TransTech announced Tuesday, Dec. 14, that it signed a record number of new fleet and brokerage customers for Transflo Express truckstop scanning during 2010. The company says the rate of new customer signups was more than double the previous year and set a record for the fourth year in a row.
At the same time, the Transflo Express network expanded by 45 percent, from 550 truckstops to almost 800 with the addition of Flying J-branded facilities in the Pilot Flying J group and a number of independent truck stops.
Among the carriers that signed with Transflo Express in 2010 were Interstate Distributor, Quality Distribution, Superior Bulk and Link America, joining previous customers J.B. Hunt Transport, Heartland Express, Schneider National, U.S. Xpress, Knight Transportation, Prime, P.A.M. Transportation Services, and Crete Carrier Corp. Meanwhile, major brokers and 3PLs – including CRST Logistics, Prime Logistics, LMTS and Command Logistics – signed during 2010, joining previous clients C.H. Robinson and Trinity Transport.
With Transflo Express, drivers hand their delivery documents to a trained fuel desk attendant for scanning at 800 truckstops nationwide. In seconds, these documents are sent electronically to the fleet or broker for immediate billing and payroll processing. Transflo Express is designed to cut days from the billing cycle and allow fleets, brokers and drivers to get paid faster.
“We’re very pleased with the snowballing adoption of Transflo Express,” says Bob Helms, chairman and chief executive officer of Pegasus TransTech.“Now our new customers, like our old friends, are positioned for improved efficiency and profit as freight markets recover from their recessionary levels.”
