Pilot Travel to open maintenance shops

April 22, 2004

Pilot Travel Centers LLC will soon be opening truck maintenance shops at more than half of its locations, with the goal of having 100 to 150 in place eventually.

Last month, Pilot signed a contract to stock and sell Goodyear brand medium truck tires at all of its facilities.

Also last month, Michelin North America Inc. announced its Michelin and BFGoodrich brand medium truck tires will be available at some 30 Pilot locations within 12 months.

Pilot has more than 260 truck stops throughout the United States.
