NATSO Check-Link™

Check-Link™ is a member-only program that provides check verification for thousands of professional drivers and offers NATSO’s assistance in collecting bad debt for an additional fee of $30 per month. In 2008, NATSO Check-Link™ was enhanced by adding authorizations through a larger nationwide network called SCAN.   While the Check-Link™ program already had data on bad check writers at truckstops, the SCAN network is comprised of data from the nation's largest retailers (such as Kmart and Wal-Mart).  In other words, NATSO members now have access to much more information on the check writer’s history. If your location is not currently a Check-Link location and would like to become apart of the Check-Link network, sign up today!

All NATSO member locations are listed through an online directory provided to over 10,000 registered drivers who consult this resource for participating NATSO truckstop and travel plaza member locations.
