U.S. Xpress Marks Earth Day by Teaming with TransCard， Anno
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Xpress Enterprises, Inc., the nation''s third-largest privately-owned truckload carrier, marked Earth Day 2008 by announcing the Company''s plans to introduce a 100-percent electronic payroll solution offered through TransCard and the Discover Network. The implementation of the Discover Network Payroll Cards will allow U.S. Xpress to enhance the Company''s existing electronic payroll, and it will assist in the Company''s efforts to reduce waste and carbon emissions.
The combination of the new TransCard payroll and electronic paystub product with the Company''s current direct-deposit offerings will allow U.S. Xpress to further reduce the Company''s environmental footprint. According to statistical formulas established by the Electronic Payments Association, the 100-percent payroll solution from TransCard can result in saving more than 10,000 pounds of paper on an annual basis. In addition, a 100-percent electronic payroll delivery by U.S. Xpress can assist in conserving nearly 13,000 gallons of gasoline that would be needed to send all the Company''s payroll statements through conventional mail in one year. Estimates further show that these enhancements in the electronic payroll system at U.S. Xpress have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 399,000 pounds. This year-over-year reduction in greenhouse gas emissions would be the equivalent of reducing 399,000 miles driven by cars or preserving 55,000 square feet of forest from deforestation.
"We look forward to implementing our new paperless payroll venture with TransCard, and we believe that the Discover Network Payroll Card will have a positive environmental impact and enhance our payroll system as well," said U.S. Xpress Co-Chairman Patrick Quinn "The stewardship of our environment has long been one of our company''s core business values. U.S. Xpress applauds and supports the efforts of TransCard in developing innovative green solutions that also provide cost reduction opportunities."
Craig Fuller, CEO of TransCard, stated: "It is amazing how implementing electronic payroll can affect an organization''s environmental footprint. The TransCard product not only reduces cost in payroll distribution, but it''s also the most environmentally friendly way to pay un-banked employees and associates. We are excited to be a part of U.S. Xpress'' green payroll initiative."
Last month, TransCard announced the launch of TransCard Mobile, a text-based payroll stub that allows employees to receive their stubs electronically on a text-based mobile phone, eliminating the use of paper and waste in the process. U.S. Xpress responded by agreeing to implement TransCard''s truly green, paperless ideology.
Offered by TransCard to more than 10,000 U.S. Xpress Enterprises associates, the Discover Network-branded payroll card will allow these associates to use their cards anywhere that the Discover Network brand is accepted, including more than 4,400 financial institutions and nearly 260,000 ATMs and point-of-sale terminals nationwide. U.S. Xpress Discover Network cardholders enjoy the benefits of convenience, cost savings and reduced fraud.
