Transport businesses are often impacted by misreported expenses—purchases of food, alcohol, and other non-fuel items that are reported as fuel purchases—that accounts for about 15% of total fuel consumption. This abuse results in an increase in total fuel cost of as much as 30 cents per gallon over the retail pump price. Our managed purchasing system can eliminate this abuse and inappropriate use of your commercial fuel purchasing account.
Using our online account management system, you can set a wide range of card restrictions, including:
• What products can be purchased
• Days of the week and times when purchases can be made
• Maximum number of gallons that can be purchased
• Restricting usage in specific zip codes
Restriction settings are made in real-time, so when you activate or deactivate a card, or make changes to card restrictions, you can be secure in knowing that the changes will take immediate effect. In addition, many cardlock fueling stations offer real-time updates with transaction information and alerts about error and denial codes, which allows us to see and fix the issue immediately. For customers who need after hours support for card issues, we offer 24 hour customer service at 209-368-0634.
At the end of each billing period our clients receive a printed fuel management report, summary, and invoice for payment. This comprehensive report highlights your entire company’s fueling activity in thorough detail.
We also offer online account management. Our customers can log into our online data management server to retrieve information, including when and where purchases were made, vehicle odometer readings, estimated mile per gallon, type and amount of fuel purchased, price per gallon, and total cost.
This information can be exported to an Excel or CSV spreadsheet, which allows for easy import into third-party fleet management software, or simply for recordkeeping. All invoices are stored in the system, so you can re-download any necessary historical invoices at any time, as needed.
