CHATTANOOGA, TENN. — July 7, 2009 — U.S. Xpress announced today that it has implemented the TRANSFLO Express® truck stop scanning solution from Pegasus TransTech. U.S. Xpress, one of the largest truckload carriers in North America, operates a fleet of 8,250 trucks in long haul, expedited, dedicated, and regional services.
With TRANSFLO Express, drivers simply hand their delivery documents to a trained fuel desk attendant for scanning at more than 525 truck stop locations nationwide. In seconds, these documents are sent electronically to the fleet for immediate billing and payroll processing. TRANSFLO Express expedites document delivery and allows fleets and drivers to get paid faster.
U.S. Xpress has been successfully using Pegasus TransTech’s TRANSFLO in-house imaging for the past nine years to streamline back office processes and speed the collections process. Pegasus TransTech’s Workflow solution has allowed U.S. Xpress to establish consistent, repeatable business processes that generate optimal results. The company has now turned to Pegasus for document delivery.
“Since 1986, U.S. Xpress has reshaped the landscape of transportation by developing revolutionary innovations that continually deliver unmatched levels of customer satisfaction. Adding the efficiencies of truck stop scanning to our TRANSFLO solution will combine the effectiveness of both technologies,” said Eric Peterson, controller of U.S. Xpress. “Capitalizing on the TRANSFLO Express document delivery system will enhance the technology platform in which we’ve already invested.”
TRANSFLO Express has helped fleets of all sizes to achieve same-day access to delivery documents, reduce operating costs, increase driver satisfaction, speed cash flow, and improve operating efficiency that enables growth without adding head count.
“U.S. Xpress has been a good customer of TRANSFLO for years,” said Frank Adelman, senior vice president of Pegasus TransTech. “We’re excited about the opportunity to serve their document delivery needs, and we believe their choice to adopt TRANSFLO Express truck stop scanning is just the latest example of how U.S. Xpress uses technology to improve service to their drivers and customers.”
