| Tuesday, April 07, 2015

IdleAir, an alternative to APUs and idling engines during rest periods, has announced a new location at the Flying J in Latta, S.C. A new location in Mexico and future construction plans have also been announced.

Flying J in Latta, S.C., is now equipped with IdleAir Station Modules. The new location is the second solar-PV powered truck stop by IdleAir. Fitted into the cab window with an adapter, the Service Module allows drivers to have heating, cooling, standard electric inside and outside the cab, satellite TV, Internet and more without using an APU or idling the engine. A color touch-screen control, heating/cooling vent, electrical outlets, and telecommunication ports are part of the hookup. Window adapters are $5.

An expanded, overnight 12-hour discount is available for Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association members.

Convoy Solutions LLC, the parent company of IdleAir, has also broken ground for a location in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. This will be IdleAir’s first operation outside the United States. IdleAir will be building terminals with Covenant Transport at their headquarters and national training facility in Chattanooga, Tenn.
