10-4 Good Buddy! Online Bankers Target Truck Drivers

Online banking isn't new, but one bank has elevated the concept to a new level: online banking has taken to the highway.

Ronald Hynes, vice president of strategic partnerships at National InterBank said truck drivers are ideal candidates for online banking because they spend so much time away from home and can't necessarily get to a branch of their own bank.
