How can Fuel Cards Help my Courier Business?

Businesses are constantly seeking ways to optimise their operations and reduce costs. One significant expense for a courier business is fuel, which accounts for a substantial portion of their operational budget. This is why fuel cards become invaluable tools for managing expenses and maximising efficiency. Fuel cards are a simple and convenient way of paying for your business fuel. They make fuel purchases easier and negate the need for your drivers to keep receipts to reclaim their money. Here at Cambrian Fuelcard Services, we offer a portfolio of fuel cards from leading suppliers.

The following are some of the ways that fuel cards can help courier businesses.

Expense management made easier

Fuel cards offer courier businesses a streamlined approach to managing their fuel expenses. Fuel cards consolidate all fuel-related transactions under a single account, providing detailed insight into fuel consumption. It also allows you to plan and track which stations your drivers are drawing fuel at. By being able to easily keep track of all of the fuel-related expenses, businesses can identify areas for improvement and cost reduction.

Find the right card for your business

We offer a comprehensive range of fuel cards to satisfy all your business requirements. Our highly-trained and experienced industry professionals can assist in finding the best card for your business. With our Fuel Station Locator app, you can also find the most convenient stations in your area. Our Station Locator can also help you to find which card is most suitable for your drivers routes. You can also easily switch to another card in our portfolio if you find it would work better for your business.

Discount and rewards programs

Many of our cards offer the drivers the option of collecting loyalty points when they fill up. The loyalty schemes include: Shell GO+, Nectar points and Tesco Clubcard points. These are often managed through apps at participating stations. Through these apps, you can collect points to get discounts on fuel, food, drinks and more.

Enhanced security and spending controls

All transactions are secure as all cards are PIN protected, giving you tighter spending controls and reducing the risk of fraud. Businesses can register the cards to an individual driver or a vehicle depending on what suits your fleet. This adds another layer of security to fuel purchases as it reduces the chance of unauthorised use of the fuel cards.

Efficient fleet management

For courier businesses with a fleet of vehicles, fuel cards are invaluable tools for optimizing fleet management. Through comprehensive reporting, fuel cards allow greater insight into drivers routes, the amount of fuel purchased, and the times at which fuel was purchased. By analysing the data on fuel consumption, businesses can identify opportunities to optimise routes and enhance business efficiency. Our customers can also log into a free online account portal at any time. Through our web portal, our customers are able to access a detailed invoice. This shows the site, registration, date, mileage records and time and quantity of fuel drawn.

Credit terms

Payment terms are twice monthly by direct debit. Weekly payment terms are also available. Transactions from the 1st to the 15th of the month become payable at the end of the current month, and transactions from the 16th to the 31st of the month become payable on the 15th of the following month. This gives you up to 30 days of interest free credit.

For courier businesses, tracking efficiency and cost optimisation and is essential for ensuring profitability. Fuel cards offer courier businesses a powerful tool for fuel expense management. With fuel cards, businesses can keep track of spending, cut down on administration time, receive discounts and make sure all fuel purchases are secure.
