TAMPA, Fla. — Five truck stop locations have joined the network of independent companies which offer TRANSFLO Express truck stop scanning from Pegasus TransTech.

TRANSFLO Express helps both drivers and fleets to get paid faster, and for truck stops it will attract more driver customers who need to scan and transmit their delivery documents, according to company officials.

One of the new TRANSFLO Express stops is Speedy's Travel Plaza at 2023 State Highway 104 in upstate New York, at Exit 34 on Interstate 81. Speedy's offers a great location, full-service fueling, a restaurant, showers, a convenience store, and now, TRANSFLO Express.

"We had a lot of requests from the drivers for it," said Matt Clark, Speedy's director of operations. "They were going to other locations because of it."

But that's turning around now.

"It's going great. The drivers who know about TRANSFLO Express are using it and they're telling other drivers. It's starting to expand," Clark said.

With TRANSFLO Express, drivers simply hand their documents to a trained cashier for scanning. In seconds, these documents are sent electronically to the fleet for immediate billing and payroll processing. Because TRANSFLO Express expedites document delivery, fleets and drivers get paid faster.

TRANSFLO Express is now or will soon be offered at four other independent truck stop locations.

They include:

• Kent’s Korner 18 at 1694 Old Indian Trail, Highway 39, at Exit 33 on

I-20 in Batesburg, S.C.

• Kent's Korner 24 at 651 Bettis Academy Road at Exit 11 on I-20 in Graniteville, S.C.

• Mega Stop, Inc, 21100 Kenrick Ave Lakeville, Minn., off I-35 in Lakeville, Minn.

• Tom’s Travel Center, 20 Commerce Drive off U.S. 322, General Potter Highway in Milroy, Pa.

TRANSFLO Express is now available at 929 truck stops in the U.S. and Canada including Pilot, Flying J, and Love’s locations.

“Independent truck stops provide a very valuable service to truckers in unique locations where resources are often hard to find,” said Bob Helms, chairman and CEO of Pegasus TransTech. “We are very pleased to be working with these new partners in the TRANSFLO Express network.”
