Pure reduces fuel fraud through new partnership

June 30, 2023
Franklin Park, Illinois-based carrier turns to Relay Payments and the Amous TMS to modernize operations and save money by reducing fuel skimming.

Pure Freight Lines is partnering with Relay Payments and the Amous transportation management system (TMS) to reduce diesel fuel fraud that the truckload carrier says costs it “tens of thousands of dollars” each month.

The hauler of dry van and refrigerated cargo is utilizing Amous’ TMS to “seamlessly” manage its routes, drivers, dispatchers, and invoices, the company said. As a result of Relay’s recent integration with Amous, Pure now can manage diesel fuel transactions with Relay’s digital payments platform. Pure’s drivers benefit by being able to conduct over-the-road expenses and reporting through their smartphone with only a few taps, saving time and protecting them from fuel fraud at 1,500-plus travel centers that accept Relay.

“We’re thrilled to provide exceptional logistics solutions to our customers,” Milo Dubak, CEO and founding partner at Pure, said in a news release. “Our commitment to transparency, honesty, new fuel-efficient equipment, and technology sets us apart in the industry, and we’re dedicated to creating a family atmosphere that values our employees, customers, drivers, and partners.”

With the expansion of Relay Payments to Pilot Company's nationwide network of travel centers, fleets like Pure are able to utilize Relay for diesel payments at more than 800 Pilot, Flying J, and One9 Fuel Network locations.

“This partnership reflects what’s possible when companies within the logistics industry choose to modernize their operations,” said Ryan Droege, Relay co-founder and CEO. “We’re grateful to work alongside partners like Pure, Amous, and Pilot and help them solve industry challenges like fuel fraud through our cardless payments, real-time transaction APIs, and an intuitive driver experience.”

Amous said its partnership with Pure and Relay supports the company’s broader goals of providing end-to-end services for truck lines, brokerages, and logistics companies. Amous has offered fraud mitigation through its technology in the past, but integrating Relay’s cardless capabilities enables greater security and controls than any previous measures.

“Carriers and drivers lose thousands through card skimming at the pumps,” said Mark Shevchuk, Amous CEO. “Integrating Relay into our TMS allows fleets like PURE to eliminate fuel fraud, while providing real-time transaction data and greater cash flow insights for streamlined operations.

“The end result is a far better experience for carriers, drivers, dispatchers, and truckstops.”
