Yes, the trucks at PTI are governed at 63 mph when pressing the pedal and 65 mph when the truck’s cruise is set. This approach has helped reduce our fuel cost, accident frequency, and gives our Class A CDL Drivers a better opportunity to earn their own MPG monthly bonus.
Yes, the PTI fleet uses elogs (computer logs or electronic logs) on a Samsung tablet based program called XRS. Each Class A CDL Driver is assigned his or her own tablet and using elogs enhances communication, improves driver workflow, and provides the driver with a seamless user experience through its ease of use and compatibility. Additional tools include in the table include SmartETA trip planning, maps, communication apps, and more.

Yes! Non-daily PTI Class A CDL Drivers may bring up to two pets with them at a time when they’re out on the road. To ensure the pet’s safety, they must be restrained or kenneled while the truck is in motion.
