TAMPA, Fla. – Pegasus TransTech announced Feb. 5 that TRANSFLO Express kiosks have been enhanced with Spanish and French language choices.

“The new bilingual capability of TRANSFLO Express kiosks reflects the growth of trade among the United States and NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) partners,” said Pegasus TransTech Chairman and CEO Bob Helms. “International trade has more than doubled since 1995 and continues to grow, exceeding pre-recession levels earlier this year. By far the largest share of that freight moves by truck. We’re pleased to provide a personal convenience that supports this important source of trucking business.”

In the past year, Pegasus TransTech has been expanding its geographical reach and has added more than 100 TRANSFLO Express locations, Helms said. Many new locations are in Canada where French and English are the official languages. Scan stations are growing at a steady pace near the U.S. and Mexico border as well. Although U.S. federal rules require that drivers speak and read English, Helms said most drivers are more comfortable reading in their native language.

TRANSFLO Express kiosks are available at many of the truck stops that offer classic TRANSFLO Express truck stop scanning. Using the traditional method, a driver simply hands documents to a trained truck stop cashier for scanning. Drivers can bypass the fuel desk and scan documents themselves at their convenience using a TRANSFLO Express kiosk, Helms said.

Either way, those documents are delivered electronically in seconds to fleet headquarters for immediate billing and payroll processing.

Helms said TRANSFLO Express speeds the flow of paperwork, reducing days-sales-outstanding and increasing cash flow.

More than 900 truck stops in North America have TRANSFLO Express including all Pilot, Flying J, Love’s and many independent truck stops.

TRANSFLO Express kiosks – which include step-by-step instructions on the screens – are currently available at 272 truck stops.
