TravelCenters of America opened a newly built truck service facility at the TA travel center located at I-65, Exit 230, in DeMotte, Ind. This TA Truck Service location offers four service bays and is open 24/7/365.
ASE- and TIA-certified technicians specialize in providing light duty repair, brakes, electrical, alignment, air conditioning, preventive maintenance, inspections and RoadSquad emergency road call services. This location increases the total number of truck service facilities in the TA and Petro branded chain to 233.
As with its other recently built truck service facilities, TravelCenters has designed the DeMotte location to include a back-up generator to provide power when there is an electrical outage. Additionally, the design includes an outdoor patio, where, on good weather days, drivers can relax and enjoy the outdoors while their truck maintenance is complete. There is also an ample indoor waiting area with TVs.
“This is the third Truck Service facility we have built and opened within the last month,” said Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters. “We are happy to continue to be able to build and offer more truck maintenance and repair shops to our owner-operator and fleet customers. Now, nearly all of our locations have a truck service facility."
K.L. Harring Transportation has announced a driver pay raise that increases the base pay rate for team drivers to 70 cents per mile.
