TravelCenters of America Expands U.S. Bank Relationship
WESTLAKE, Ohio — TravelCenters of America LLC expanded its relationship with U.S. Bank by accepting a new single Voyager Fleet Card solution at all of its truck stop and convenience store locations. According to both companies, for the first time, all fleet classes can be managed through one card, one network and one program management platform.
“Partnering with U.S. Bank on the first true single-card solution means we can better serve the needs of mixed fleets,” said TravelCenters CEO Tom O’Brien. “We have long valued our relationship with U.S. Bank, and this agreement deepens it to a new level. We look forward to issuing the new card to our employee drivers in the coming months, and expect to begin accepting it from customers in 2017.”
The Voyager Fleet Card combines the robust fleet control functionality needed by heavy-duty commercial rigs at truck stops with the comprehensive data capture capabilities required by smaller vehicle fleets at retail locations, added U.S Bank.
“Expanding our partnership in this way brings the efficiencies of a single solution to TravelCenters and to the market at large,” said U.S. Bank Global Transportation Solutions General Manager John Hardin. “It is able to better meet the needs of its fleet, while we solidify our leadership position in the industry with the first fully integrated fuel payment solution to cover all eight fleet classes in a single card.”
Minneapolis-based U.S. Bancorp, with $438 billion in assets as of June 30, is the parent company of U.S. Bank National Association, the fifth-largest commercial bank in the United States.
Westlake-based TravelCenters of America LLC conducts business in 43 states and Canada, principally under the TA and Petro Stopping Centers travel center brands and the Minit Mart convenience store brand.
