How are fleet fuel cards used?

Commercial fuel cards are designed for small businesses and large fleets. As a fleet owner and operator, you're seeking a fuel card customized to your business's unique needs.

  • Fleet cards can be used as your primary fueling source, with driver's filling up at a cardlock location, gas station or truck stop during the day or when they return back to base at day-end.
  • For fleets using onsite fleet fueling or are fueling themselves from an onsite fuel tank, commercial fleet cards can be a great back-up solution giving drivers ready access to fuel and maintenance services - without a need for them to return to base.
