Tampa, Fla. – Pegasus TransTech announced that it signed a record number of new fleet and brokerage customers for TRANSFLO Express® truck stop scanning during 2010. 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%, from 550 truck stops to almost 800 with the addition of Flying J-branded facilities in the Pilot Flying J group and a number of independent truck stops.
“We acquired the assets of Flying J’s Scan & Go service, and converted most of their customers to the TRANSFLO Express network,” said Bob Helms, chairman and CEO of Pegasus TransTech.
“We believe the explosive growth and influx of new fleet customers represents a broad industry recognition of TRANSFLO Express as clearly the most efficient and cost-effective document delivery choice.”
Among the hundreds of carriers that signed with TRANSFLO Express in 2010 are Interstate Distributor, Quality Distribution, Superior Bulk and Link America. They join such top North American fleets as J.B. Hunt Transport, Heartland Express, Schneider National, U.S. Xpress, Knight Transportation, Prime, P.A.M. Transportation Services and Crete Carrier Corp. as TRANSFLO Express customers.
Meanwhile, major brokers and 3PLs including CRST Logistics, Prime Logistics, LMTS and Command Logistics signed with Pegasus TransTech during 2010. They join such well-known companies as C.H. Robinson and Trinity Transport as customers.
With TRANSFLO Express, drivers simply hand their delivery documents to a trained fuel desk attendant for scanning at 800 truck stops nationwide. In seconds these documents are sent electronically to the fleet or broker for immediate billing and payroll processing. TRANSFLO Express cuts days from the billing cycle and allows fleets, brokers, and drivers to get paid faster.
“We’re very pleased with the snowballing adoption of TRANSFLO Express,” Helms said. “Now our new customers like our old friends are positioned for improved efficiency and profit as freight markets recover from their recessionary levels.”
