KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—Road warriors on the interstate will have an easier time locating health products, thanks to a partnership between Knoxville-based Pilot Flying J and CVS Health, the national healthcare company.
According to a news release, the partnership will provide travelers and trucking professionals with convenient access to quality, low-cost wellness products available at kiosks in 50 travel centers across the U.S.
The wellness kiosks are part of Pilot Flying J’s commitment to make life on the road easier for professional drivers. The products include CVS Health over-the-counter medications, vitamins, personal care products, hand and ankle braces, muscle relief cream, sleep aids, smoking cessation, blood pressure monitoring and diabetic supplies.
Launched late last year, this test comes as both companies continue their commitment to offering much-needed health products to the trucking community. Employing fleets of their own, both companies recognize the importance of convenient access to medical care and wellness products while on the road.
