EDMONTON, Alta. — Truckers Pal is expanding its kiosk network into the U.S., the company has announced.
The company recently announced expansion across Western Canada and into the Maritimes and now it plans to follow through by adding four kiosk installations in the U.S. this June. Dave Fenn, president of Truckers Pal says the company will have 12 kiosks stateside by August. The touch screen kiosks are placed in truck stops, allowing drivers to access e-mail, fax machines and other important information. The system is accessed using Scancards which can be purchased individually or in bulk form.
The first four U.S. locations include Gary, Michigan City, Porter and DeMontt, Indiana. Canadian locations include truck stops in Arnprior, Belleville and London, Ont. with Western Canadian locations including Winnipeg, Kamloops and Chilliwack. The first Maritime kiosk will be up and running at Murray’s Esso in Woodstock, N.B. by May, Fenn says.
The kiosks are located on direct routes to U.S./Canada border crossings so drivers can use them to send PAPS-related documents to U.S. customs brokers. With the planned expansion into the U.S., Canada-bound truckers will now have the same advantages.
