Fleets Find Fuel Card Benefits Extend Beyond Fill-Ups

Fuel Card

Light & Medium Truck - August 31, 2011

Advances in fuel card tech­nol­o­gy now offer fleets ben­e­fits such as fuel-theft pre­ven­tion and the abil­i­ty to instant­ly access large amounts of dri­ver data in real time. New­er fuel card pro­grams are sim­pli­fy­ing the process of using and get­ting infor­ma­tion from the cards. With prop­er iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, fleet man­agers can review and man­age their account from any com­put­er with Inter­net access while elim­i­nat­ing the need for oper­a­tors to man­u­al­ly input data. Ris­ing fuel costs are forc­ing fleets to seek tech­no­log­i­cal advan­tages in fuel pur­chas­ing that were pre­vi­ous­ly unnec­es­sary and involve nego­ti­at­ing dis­counts and pre­vent­ing fuel theft.
