Love’s Travel Stops announced plans last week to install RFID (radio frequency identification) technology at all of its locations nationwide.
When combined with an RFID tag in the cab of the truck, this technology will enable fuel transactions without a physical payment card by wirelessly recognizing the truck as it enters the fuel lane. According to Love’s, trucking companies will have greater control over fuel theft, and drivers will spend less time at the pump.
Love’s will begin installation in the fourth quarter of this year.
The technology, called Fuel Island Manager, is open to any payment system that chooses to use it. Fuel Island Manager is developed by QuikQ, a software development company based in Franklin, TN.
Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores is family owned and operated, with more than 270 locations and 100 tire care centers in 39 states.
