Fikes Truck Line and its sister company FTL Custom Commodities have implemented TRANSFLO Express truckstop scanning from Pegasus TransTech. TRANSFLO Express provides quick, electronic delivery of critical trucking documents from more than 850 participating truckstops.
The 25 drivers of FTL Custom Commodities provide refrigerated service throughout the Midwest and mid-South. Fikes Truck Line is a flatbed carrier with 300 drivers that serves the Midwest, all southern states from California to Florida, plus New York. Both firms are truckload carriers; both are 100% owner-operator. Headquartered in Hope AR, the operation also has a brokerage division: FTL Logistics.
“We’ve had a lot of contractors who have come to us from other companies who are familiar with TRANSFLO Express and like using it,” said Jerry Davis, Fikes executive vice-president. “TRANSFLO Express will shave some time off the billing cycle, and that will help Fikes. But it also helps the contractor—and that is most important.”
With TRANSFLO Express, drivers simply hand delivery documents to a trained cashier for scanning. At many truckstops, drivers can scan documents themselves at convenient kiosks if they prefer. Either way, the documents are delivered electronically in seconds to headquarters for immediate billing and payroll processing. TRANSFLO Express speeds the flow of paperwork, reducing days-sales-outstanding and increasing cash flow. It is also a convenience and thus a retention tool for drivers.
