QuikQ Announces Q-Gate

Extension of the RFID technology that drives the QuikQ Fuel Purchasing System™ helps prevent unauthorized and unintended vehicle use

Franklin, Tennessee – February 16, 2015 – QuikQ, the leading provider of a cardless direct fuel connection between truck stop point-of-sale (POS) and motor carrier enterprise systems, today announced here at the Technology & Maintenance Council Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition its new QuikQ Q-Gate™ technology. The new software detects and validates vehicle mounted RFID tags and engages existing gate opening systems. This prevents an unauthorized vehicle from entering a secure location and can reduce the risk of picking up the wrong trailer before exiting a facility.

“Q-Gate enhances yard security for trucking operations,” said Ernie Betancourt, president of QuikQ. “With QuikQ Q-Gate, RFID tags installed on trucks or trailers identify equipment entering or leaving an unattended site. When Q-Gate is integrated with a dispatch system it can match units before opening a gate, eliminating the possibility of the wrong trailer leaving a yard or a trailer heading in the wrong direction. This new offering allows fleets to add to the capability of their facility security.”

QuikQ Q-Gate employs the same RFID technology used in QuikQ’s fueling system at truck stops. The solution can be customized to open and close individual gates based on pre-determined days and times. The Q-Gate application also tracks and records entries and exits from gated sites, and provides alerts if units and trailers do not match loads or if RFID tags are damaged or inactive.
