Numerous truckers have reported that they were unable to use their fuel cards Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, forcing some drivers to shut down.

On Tuesday night, multiple truck drivers on social media reported that their EFS fuel cards were not working due to a systems failure.

The fuel cards affected by the server outage include TCH, T-Check, Fleet One, and EFS. The problem has been described as intermittent. Some drivers say that they’ve had no issues with using their fuel cards.

EFS has confirmed that server issue and says that they are working on correcting the problem.

An EFS representative told CDLLife, “We are experiencing intermittent authorization issues on EFS and Fleet One cards at some of our locations.  We have been and are continuing to actively work to solve the problem. In the meantime we humbly apologize for the inconvenience.”

It isn’t clear how much longer it will take to resolve the fuel card outage.

EFS is one of the most widely used fuel card providers for truckers in the U.S.

This is a developing story.
