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.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Landstar System, a worldwide, asset-light provider of integrated transportation management solutions, presented the 2018 Landstar Safety Officer of the Year Award to independent Landstar Agent Ike Tate during Landstar’s Annual Agent Convention held recently in Marco Island, Florida.

Landstar requires each of its 1,300 independent agents to name an individual responsible for the safety performance of their agency. The designated Landstar Safety Officer (LSO) promotes safe, secure and compliant driving, participates in Landstar’s network-wide monthly Safety Thursday Conference Call and supports customer safety initiatives.

Each month, Landstar names one LSO of the Month, from which the Landstar Safety Officer of the Year is selected. Tate, of Charlotte Express Center, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, was first recognized as a LSO of the Month in May 2018 after hosting a Landstar safety meeting focused on the dangers of distracted driving. Charlotte Express Center also conducted three Mutual Understanding of Safety Together or M.U.S.T. customer visits during 2018. And, with more than 2.6 million Landstar business capacity owner (BCO) miles booked in 2018, the agency had no preventable accidents or cargo claims on any shipments it arranged during the year.

During a ceremony held April 6, 2019, Mike Cobb, Landstar Transportation Logistics vice president of safety and compliance, presented the award to Tate. “Ike is a prime example of a true leader in safety,” Cobb said. “His agency supports its customers and community with Landstar’s safety initiatives.”

Cobb said Tate, like the 11 other 2018 LSO of the Month finalists, represents an agency with an impeccable safety record, very low accident and cargo loss frequency rates, and a staff that continuously looks for ways to improve safety.

“He demonstrates a constant commitment to safety by regularly participating in safety initiatives and following Landstar’s Complete and Accurate Dispatch procedures,” Cobb said.

ACT: Freight recession possible, rate recession likely

COLUMBUS, Ind. — A freight recession is possible and a rate recession is likely, ACT Research said in a new monthly report focusing on the future of the U.S. trucking industry.

The report covers the truckload, intermodal, LTL and last mile sectors.

“Truckload spot rates are set to soften further because of tractor capacity additions, pulling the contract rate market down by mid-year. LTL rates will be most resilient and continue to rise due to the unique dynamics in that market, but TL and intermodal rates are heading lower,” said Tim Denoyer, ACT Research’s vice president and senior analyst.

Dry van rates, net fuel, fell 15% year-over-year in the first quarter and are likely to drop 20% year-over-year in the coming months, Denover said.

Freight growth has slowed materially, and it’s not just timing effects from shippers positioning around tariff threats. The headwinds to for-hire freight volumes in 2019 include tariffs, tighter financial conditions, the industrial slowdown, housing and auto softness, and fast private fleet growth, he said.

“While this presents risk of a freight recession in 2019, we do expect the U..S consumer to keep volumes growing, just very slowly,” Denover said. “Critically, this slowdown in freight is happening just as truckload capacity is accelerating. After growing less than freight for most of last year, truckload capacity has accelerated to 7% year-over-year growth in early 2019. We think this is the key story behind lower spot rates and why the pricing pendulum is starting to swing to the shipper.”

ACT’s Freight Forecast also includes a last mile section, which argues changing supply chains are beginning to impact equipment purchasing, though the Class 8 tractor sleeper is having quite a strong cycle.

ACT Research is a publisher of commercial vehicle truck, trailer, and bus industry data, market analysis and forecasting services for the North American and China markets.
