U.S. Xpress Goes “OnRoad” with Comdata
BRENTWOOD, TN - Apr 22, 2022
Onboards innovative, dual-purpose payment solution for driver and company operations
BRENTWOOD, Tenn., April 22, 2022 — Comdata, Inc., a FLEETCOR company and world leader in payment innovation, today announced a recent partnership with U.S. Xpress (NYSE: USX) to advance and enhance its fleet management operations. U.S. Xpress will implement use of Comdata’s OnRoad program to accommodate and facilitate both company and driver purchases.
The Comdata OnRoad Card is a universally accepted MasterCard with access to both the Comdata Proprietary and MasterCard Signature Debit networks. With OnRoad, professional drivers can receive fund disbursements (payroll, settlements, reimbursements) and company funds all on one card. Drivers can use their funds for any personal needs, all with zero transaction fees*. The Proprietary side of the card works like a traditional fuel card, meaning there is access to real-time reporting and fleet controls on the card’s usage. Negotiated fuel discounts and discount fuel administration are also included.
Eric Peterson, Chief Financial Officer of U.S. Xpress, said Comdata’s deep industry experience in payment solutions and its focus on security and innovation is what ultimately led the company to select Comdata as its new fuel tender. “Comdata offers the latest in payment technology, along with an ongoing commitment to identify industry needs and find creative, purpose-built solutions,” he said.
“Notwithstanding the obvious benefits of this versatile card, U.S. Xpress will also have access to Comdata’s unmatched fuel proximity and fraud protection systems,” said Eric Dowdell, President, Comdata and North America Trucking. “U. S. Xpress is on a mission to make goods move better every day, and we are happy to support them in the journey.”
*Additional fees may apply for optional services, late payments, and/or credit risk. See account agreement for details.
