LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Kwik Trip Inc. has signed an agreement to provide Transflo Express truckstop scanning at 11 additional locations in the Midwest, said Pegasus TransTech Corp., a provider of document scanning applications to the transportation industry. With these additions, 13 Kwik Trip travel centers will now offer full-service Transflo Express scanning.

With Transflo Express, drivers hand their trip documents to a trained cashier at the fuel counter for scanning. In seconds, the documents are sent electronically to the fleet or third-party logistics provider for immediate billing and payroll processing.

"One of our core values is innovation," said Steve Wrobel, a spokesperson for Kwik Trip. "Whether it is with our food preparation or with how we serve our diesel customers, innovation is the driving force for doing whatever we can do to attract more customers and serve them in a better way."

Kwik Trip has offered Transflo Express in two locations in Wisconsin since May 2013: Tomah (I-94, Exit 143) and Black River Falls (I-94, Exit 116). Transflo Express will be available at the following 10 store locations starting in March and April 2014:

Minnesota: Dakota (I-90, Exit 267), Owatonna (I-35, Exit 45) and Mankato (US-169); Wisconsin: Mauston (I-90/I-94, Exit 69), Baldwin (I-94, Exit 19), Wilson (I-94, Exit 28), Oshkosh (Hwy-41, Exit 124), Plover (I-39, Exit 151) and Bonduel (WI-117); and Iowa: Brooklyn (I-80, Exit 201).

The 13th location, in Bloomer, Wis. (Hwy-53, Exit 110), is currently under construction and set to open this fall.

The new Kwik Trip and Kwik Star locations join the more than 950 truckstop locations offering Transflo Express, the largest truckstop scanning network in the United States and Canada that includes all of the more than 600 Pilot Flying J locations and all of the more than 300 Love's Travel Stops.

"We welcome the new Kwik Trip locations into the Transflo network and look forward to continued success helping fleets and drivers speed the billing process and getting paid faster," said Frank Adelman, Pegasus TransTech President and CEO.

Pegasus TransTech Corp. provides document management and integrated document delivery solutions that improve operating efficiency, speed cash flow, increase profit and drive consistent, repeatable results.

Transflo and Transflo DMS software provides the backoffice solutions for document management and electronic workflow. Pegasus TransTech's scanning products Transflo Express truckstop scanning, Transflo Now! anywhere in-cab scanning and Transflo Mobile provide same-day access to delivery documents which speeds driver pay and the carrier's billing cycle. Transflo $Velocity is the electronic, consistent method for carriers to submit invoices and load documents to participating brokers to get paid faster.
