Pegasus TransTech announced that its Transflo ELD T7 devices will now be distributed in Pilot and Flying J travel centers in the U.S.

Pilot Flying J signed an agreement to carry the Transflo Telematics solution, promoting and selling them through its network of stores. The retail package includes an ELD, instructions and reference guides, and mobile access to electronic logs and hours of service features through the Transflo HOS app. The device is designed to be installed in minutes and comes with an installation harness that is compatible with heavy-duty trucks.

“Pilot Flying J is dedicated to helping professional drivers be as efficient as possible,” said Ken Parent, president at Pilot Flying J. “We are thrilled to partner with Transflo to offer these next-generation solutions to our guests so they can enjoy ease of access and enhanced convenience. We strive for our stores to be a one-stop shop that meets our guests’ needs and preferences, and adding cutting-edge products for professional drivers helps achieve that goal.”

The offering is backed by support resources. Drivers can access self-service material directly in the mobile app, on the Transflo support site, and in print. They can also call or email the Transflo Support team, which provides mobile and document management assistance to drivers on the road. The company has hired additional support team members at its Tampa, Fla., headquarters in preparation for drivers switching from paper logs to electronic logs this year.

As part of the retail offering, independent drivers and owner-operators can find new insights about their trucks through the Transflo Telematics portal. Small fleet owners can monitor fuel consumption and receive maintenance and safety alerts. They can even access data to be used with international fuel tax reporting. These features not only allow trucking companies to be compliant with ELD rules but also improve operational efficiency.

“We continue to make ELD units available where and when commercial drivers need them most, and we’re excited to add Pilot Flying J to our retail distribution network,” shares Frank Adelman, president and CEO of Pegasus TransTech. “Service, inventory, and convenience are differentiators that improve the driver experience and make the transition easy.”
