More About Comcheks

How to Use Comchek

A comchek is type of payment primarily used in the trucking industry and requires the payer, typically a broker or carrier, to have an account with COMDATA. Comcheks provide a payment method for drivers and carriers to pay for various charges and accessorial fees they incur over-the-road.

To use a comchek, a truck driver’s broker or carrier must have an account with Comdata. The driver will need to provide a blank paper comchek and/or the express code, a sequence of 14 to 18 digit numbers that are associated with a pre-authorized amount of funds. Comcheks can be used at certain locations such as truckstops, warehouses and banks that are equipped to accept this method of payment. Comcheks can be used to pay for fuel, vendors, or repairs and even provide cash advances. In order to process a comchek, it is often required to call Comdata or visit their website in order to obtain the authorization number.
