The package will enable new joining customers to pay one price that is cheaper than the supermarket at over 3,500 UK forecourts whether at a motorway site or a local filling station. This means fleets can budget for their fuel card schemes more accurately and cut costs at the same time.
The programme incorporates Shells’ FuelSave fuels, which save up to one litre per tank. The new fuel card package can be allocated to individuals, vehicles or cost centres, with tailored payment options to restrict purchases.
An online management system allows fleet managers to control the scheme easily and provide authorisation for the secure card, subject to product restrictions and signature/vehicle checks. The facility is HMRC approved and captures mileage data at every fill up, providing valuable management information.
Neal Francis, managing director of Pendragon Contracts, said: ‘Customers shouldn’t take their current fuel package for granted. Our advice is to carry out a review at least every six months and take a close look at pricing, service delivery, reporting and network coverage. Pendragon’s fuel offer through Shell now enables customers to make typical savings of 2p per litre compared to alternative suppliers.’
