It is every truck driver’s nightmare.
Your semi breaks down late at night on a lonely highway in the middle of nowhere. Who do you call for help? How will you pay for the repairs? Finally, how much will this unexpected delay cost your company?
One solution to this dilemma is a new program from Pilot Flying J that provides round-the-clock emergency roadside assistance from more than 130 travel centers nationwide.
