Red Classic, a full-service transportation company specializing in van truckload shipping, has implemented Transflo Express truck stop scanning and the Transflo Mobile app from Pegasus TransTech to streamline the settlement process and accelerate cash flow.
Red Classic, based in Charlotte, NC, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Coca-Cola Bottling Co. The company is a mixed fleet operation with approximately 340 company drivers and 60 owner-operators serving the southeastern portion of the U.S.
Before using Transflo Express and Transflo Mobile, drivers had to return to a facility to hand off documents to meet the weekly cutoff date for settlements.
“Being on the road for a week and batching documents together on the weekend could result in drivers missing our settlement deadline,” said Ron Drogan, president of Red Classic. “This situation was inhibiting our growth by slowing the settlement process. At the same time, it was delaying our invoicing.”
The solutions allow the fleet to receive high-quality images from drivers within 24 hours of delivery.
“Transflo gives us the ability to scan documents in the field on a daily basis. We can now spread the work out over time, expedite and improve the accuracy of our settlements and invoicing process. It also improves our cash flow,” Drogan added.
The company is using an optional, custom feature of Transflo Mobile that prompts drivers to identify captured documents by type — bill of lading, expense receipt, etc. — to further expedite workflow.
“The automated process keeps our staffing resources down and creates a convenience for our customers to find proof-of-delivery documents whenever they need them,” Drogan said. “Drivers also have confidence that their documents were received by the office.”
