Pegasus TransTech: self-service scan stations on the rise


Pegasus TransTech said that use of self-service Transflo Express scan stations at truck stops is on the rise. Pegasus TransTech has increased scan stations 24 percent year-over-year in Pilot Flying J and Loves truck stops.

Statistics show that when given the choice, many drivers will choose self-service over full-service fuel desk scanning. To meet this demand Pegasus TransTech plans to deploy one to two more scan stations per week for the remainder of 2013.

In a Pegasus TransTech customer survey, carriers and drivers indicated that they like the convenience of having both options available. In high-volume stores it reduces the traffic in the store, allowing drivers to scan documents more quickly.

Drivers who use either Transflo Now in-cab scanning or Transflo Mobile smartphone scanning have become accustomed to scanning their own documents and review their scans for quality and readability before submission.  The self-service kiosks allow them to use this same functionality.

“We can see that drivers are getting comfortable with scanning documents themselves, and that is working out for the truck stops as well. In fact, recently, Pilot Flying J has been adding kiosks to its locations on a weekly basis,” said Bob Helms, chairman and chief executive officer.

Both fuel desk full-service and kiosk self-service are available at all locations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Like standard Transflo Express services, the kiosk service transmits documents electronically to the carrier.
