FAQ Friday: What is a Fuel Card?

What is a Fuel Card and how can it benefit your trucking business?

Each week we will feature a Frequently Asked Question and explain it more in detail. This week we are going to discuss Fuel Cards, what they are, what they do, and how they benefit truckers. 

What is a Fuel Card?

A fuel card is like a credit card but it is often issued by companies that drivers drive for. With these cards, drivers can pay for fuel and other expenses at truck stops instead of using cash, a debit card, or a regular credit card. This enables companies to save money on fuel costs and reduce the time required to process employees claiming back business fuel expenses. 

How Fuel Cards Benefit Truckers?

Not only are fuel cards accepted at over 12,000 truck stops nationwide but when you use them you will pay cash price at the pump, no matter where you stop. They also provide high returns to your fuel budget with pre-negotiated discounts. Mobile apps help you find the best fuel prices and manage your fuel account and drivers even when on the go.
