Pilot Flying J diesel customers can now use Amex cards at pump

Published

on

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pilot Flying J,  in partnership with American Express, have made it possible for guests to pay at the pump in the commercial diesel lanes using an American Express Card at Pilot and Flying J Travel Center locations in the United States.

In addition, the app virtual wallet will now accept American Express and other major consumer credit cards, offering drivers new payment options for mobile fueling.

“With the driver top of mind, we want to provide our guests with additional payment options,” said Ken Parent, president of Pilot Flying J. “By accepting American Express cards at the commercial diesel pumps and in the myPilot app mobile wallet, card members can now receive myRewards points at the commercial diesel pump. Previously, American Express card members had to authorize payment inside the store for commercial diesel fuel purchases. This change is a great advantage to small business owners and independent over-the-road drivers who are already using American Express.”

“We strive to back our card members and merchants with strong value and seamless experiences,” said Gunther Bright, executive vice president of American Express. “This partnership with Pilot Flying J gives our Card Members who purchase diesel on the road a more convenient way to pay.”

Professional drivers can securely authorize fuel purchases with American Express and other major consumer credit and fleet payment cards in the myPilot mobile app without having to carry or swipe a card at the pump.

For a limited time, members will receive an additional point on diesel gallon purchases when using mobile fueling in the app. By downloading the  app through the App Store or Google Play, professional drivers can start using the cardless fueling feature to choose the diesel lane that’s likely to open first, securely save payment cards and store payment card prompts for future use.

Penske Logistics closing Indiana terminal, laying off 80

Published

on

Reading, Pennsylvania-based Penske Logistics has indicated it plans to close its terminal in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The move will result in the layoffs of 80 workers, most of them drivers.

A company spokesman said the closure is in response to a “recent local trucking contract termination.” The layoffs are scheduled to begin when the contract runs out July 20, according to the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) that it filed with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development on May 18.

The WARN Act requires employers with 100 or more employees to provide 60 days’ notice of a possible plant closing or mass layoffs.

“All affected employees have been notified of their separation dates and have been told their separation from employment will be permanent,” Penske said in the WARN notice.

The notice goes to say there will be no “bumping” rights for any of the affected employees, meaning none of them can displace another company employee somewhere else by virtue of seniority or some other perceived hierarchical advantage.

However, Penske Logistics also told a local business news outlet that they are looking for possible relocation opportunities within the company for the laid-off workers.

ALIQUIPPA, Pa. — PGT Trucking recently recognized 56 Million Mile Drivers and 144 Safe Drivers at its annual awards event held at the newly-renovated Willows event center in Industry, Pennsylvania, May 18.

These individuals set the standard for excellence at PGT Trucking and throughout the industry, according to Pat Gallagher, PGT Trucking CEO.

“We value and support our Million Milers and Safe Drivers,” Gallagher said. “We are encouraged and excited by their professionalism and attitude, and we are honored to have these drivers represent our company with their knowledge, dedication, integrity and above all, their commitment to safety.”

PGT’s Safe Drivers have driven for the company for more than five years, or less than one million miles, without a preventable accident and Million Mile Drivers have accomplished this pristine status by driving over a million miles without a preventable accident.

“The Million Mile Drivers represent a very exclusive group of professional truck drivers,” said Gregg Troian, PGT Trucking president. “Exclusive, since the accomplishment includes a mix of hard work, constant attentiveness, pride, loyalty and commitment. It’s an honor to have them wear the PGT Proud Professional badge.”

The Million Mile and Safe Driver Celebration is the premier event for PGT drivers and their guests.

PGT has recognized its million mile and safe drivers for more than 20 years.

The evening’s top award winners included Rick Franklin, recipient of the David Levin Award for Company Driver of the Year; Steven Dowler, recipient of the Harry “Buster” Barnes Award for Independent Contractor of the Year; Gwendolyn Campbell, PGT’s Rookie Driver of the Year; Mike Rowley, recipient of the Hobert Hill Award for Agent of the Year; Natalie Young, recipient of the Bill Wright Award for Team Player of the Year; Alan Harff, Safe Operations Manager of the Year; Cindi Janicki, PGT MVP of the Year; and Bill Hershey, President’s Award recipient. PGT also inducted three new million mile drivers into this elite group, including Peggy Glidewell, David Haynes and Tony Sheehan.

Additionally, all Million Mile and Safe Drivers receive an award package that includes Ray Ban or Oakley sunglasses, a personalized cap and a gift of their choice from watches to tools, and lawn equipment to tires.

Drivers at the event are entered into various raffle drawings, and this year, Four Million Mile Driver Glenn Gray took home the grand prize Ford Escape Titanium.

Gallagher said PGT was honored to welcome internationally known guest speaker David Coleman to the event, who shared his thoughts on how teamwork, strong relationships and purposeful decisions influence the lives of drivers and their families each and every day.

“We are so blessed to be able to have 200 of the nation’s top drivers within our fleet,” he said. “To recognize them each year at this event is just a small token of our appreciation for all that they do for PGT, our customers and the communities we service.”
