UK Fuels relaunches Fleetone fuel card following new deal with JET
The Fleetone card is already accepted at over 2,700 multi-branded fuel stations nationwide, including Texaco, JET, Morrisons and Tesco. Under the new deal with JET, Fleetone adopted as the national fuel card offering for JET’s network of 300+ UK dealers.
As well as this wide network coverage, Fleetone fuel card holders will benefit from access to UK Fuels’ specialist fleet card services, including its online management tool “Velocity” and its e-route journey planner.
Velocity is offered as standard to UK Fuels’ customers and provides fleet managers with complete control of fuel spend. Businesses are able to monitor the fuel usage of individual drivers as well as the entire fleet. This provides managers with a wealth of information to help identify areas where savings can be made, such as highlighting an inefficient driver who can then undergo training.
Online reporting also removes the need for drivers to retain all fuel receipts and avoids the time-consuming process of managers sifting through receipts in order to reclaim VAT. In addition to online reporting, UK Fuels’ e-Route journey planner software can deliver long-term cost savings by helping drivers find convenient refuelling stations and therefore avoid route deviation. Drivers can access e-Route through desktop, tablet and mobile devices, with sat nav downloads and Smartphone apps also included in the package.
Tony Garner, director at UK Fuels, commented: ‘Whether for a fleet of one or 100, the Fleetone fuel card is the ideal way to track fuel spend and take steps to reduce it. With its extensive nationwide acceptance, the time and fuel often wasted by drivers searching for a suitable filling station is significantly reduced. This is critical when you consider the UK has the third highest diesel prices in Europe.
‘At UK Fuels, we aim to make fleet management as simple as possible, which is why we provide a flexible solution where our customers aren’t tied into a contract. It’s also why we conveniently collect payment by direct debit and send invoices by email.’
Commenting on the added security benefits of such cards, Garner explained: ‘Our fuel cards can be tailored to a specific vehicle, fleet number and driver, with restrictions placed on what can be purchased on the card. This reduces company driver fraud as well as helping to prevent theft when a fuel card is stolen.’
