American Trucking Associations (ATA) announced that U.S. Bank, provider of industry-leading freight payment solutions and issuer of the Voyager Fleet Card for all vehicle classes, will once again be an ATA Featured Product provider. This is the fourth consecutive year the bank has participated in the program, which provides ATA’s members with visibility to key products and services.
“Simplifying the payment process through the use of electronic freight payment is yet another way that the trucking industry is rapidly modernizing to keep up with market demands,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “We’re thankful that U.S. Bank is a committed industry supplier and supporter of ATA’s Interstate One Image Trailer.”
This year’s participation takes on a higher profile with the additional support of ATA’s Image Trailer, Interstate One, now emblazoned with a U.S. Bank logo as it travels the country promoting the trucking industry. The 53-foot custom drop deck show trailer, wrapped in an American-flag-themed graphic, has been stopping at state capitals, community events, high schools and industry trade shows to communicate the important role trucking plays in delivering life’s essentials safely and securely.
“Supporting Interstate One will more closely identify us with the carriers and drivers who use our safe, secure and reliable payment solutions,” said U.S. Bank Global Transportation Payments General Manager John Hardin. “We are proud to be the only bank in the United States offering proprietary fleet card and freight payment services to the marketplace, and we’re equally proud to help deliver the messages of the trucking industry and the professional driver to all corners of the country.”
A pioneer of electronic freight payment, U.S. Bank processes millions of freight invoices annually and provides a collaborative online environment for shippers and carriers to quickly resolve exceptions. In addition, its Voyager Network is one of the largest fueling and maintenance payment networks in the United States, with more than 320,000 card-accepting locations across the United States and Puerto Rico.
