Relay Payments launches fraud-free fuel payments at Onvo Travel Plazas

Fleets can now pay for commercial diesel through Relay’s award-winning payment app at Onvo locations throughout the Northeast

ATLANTA — July 10th, 2024 — Relay Payments, the fintech company modernizing payments for the trucking and logistics industries, is bringing its digital technology to 22 Onvo travel plaza locations. The AMBEST member is rapidly expanding throughout the Northeast and has partnered with Relay to eliminate card-skimming fraud, offer fuel discounts to Relay customers, and allow drivers to conveniently pay for more over-the-road expenses via Relay’s mobile app. Through Relay’s partnership with AMBEST, Onvo customers can seamlessly connect their AMBUCK$ account in the Relay app to earn rewards with every diesel fuel purchase.

"Onvo is always looking for ways to enhance our customers’ experiences. Our partnership with Relay makes fleet transactions more secure, convenient, and affordable,” said Harman Aulakh, Vice President of Marketing. “They’ve been a great partner to work with every step of the way and deliver excellent customer service, which is a rarity amongst payment companies in this industry. We’re excited to welcome Relay to Onvo."

Relay’s fuel payments solution launched last year and is now accepted at 1,600+ truckstops throughout the country. When paying for fuel at Onvo or other locations accepting Relay, fleets and drivers benefit from:

  • A nationwide payment solution that protects companies from the fraud issues plaguing legacy fuel cards;
  • The ability to save on each gallon using Relay’s negotiated discounts or a carrier’s own negotiated discounts;
  • Relay’s full suite of over-the-road coverage, allowing entirely digital payments for fuel, scales, lumpers, and more;
  • The company’s 24/7, U.S.-based customer service team that answers the phone in an average of 30 seconds.

“We hear countless stories of fleets dealing with fuel card fraud, activation problems, locked and lost cards, and drivers getting stranded,” said Relay co-founder and president Spencer Barkoff. “Since launching our fuel payments solution, Relay customers no longer experience card skimming fraud, operational headaches, or the poor service they received from other payment providers. We include multiple security features to ensure every fuel payment is protected. The bottom line is that when you pay with Relay, you don’t use a card and don’t have to deal with fraud.”

Relay introduced its modern digital payment solution in 2019. Fleets rapidly adopted the platform to replace archaic payment methods like cash, fleet checks, and fleet cards, as well as benefit from increased hours of service and supply chain efficiencies. Relay’s payment network has continued to expand, allowing fleets to make fast and secure fuel, unloading, scales, and other over-the-road payments at locations across the country. Relay is now trusted by 350,000+ drivers, 90,000+ carriers, and 1,600+ truckstops.
