Boyd Bros. moves to EFS for fuel transactions


Electronic Funds Source (EFS), a provider of corporate payment systems announced that Boyd Bros. Transportation Inc., a large regional flatbed truckload carrier headquartered in Clayton, Ala., has transitioned to EFS.

Boyd Bros. also owns WTI Transport (Tuscaloosa, Ala.) and recently acquired Mid Seven Transportation (Des Moines, Iowa). Boyd says it made the decision to implement EFS because of the company’s commitment to technology and their unique approach to helping carriers become more efficient in managing their payments in today’s competitive environment.

“Boyd Bros. is a highly-modified AS400 shop and not every out-of-the-box solution will work for us,” said Betty Adams, fuel manager at Boyd Bros. “They developed real-time, integrated, customized programming specifically to meet our needs and their customer relations and support teams delivered exceptional service throughout the implementation.”

Adams said one of the biggest influences in their decision to implement with EFS was ‘they are very forward-thinking in terms of payments and how they affect our industry’. Adams also highlighted EFS’ online fuel reconciliation tool and indicated that in addition to purchase controls and validation, it saved them hours auditing their fuel discounts and purchases.
