Scania is launching its own fuel card which it says will enable operators to benefit from bulk fuel prices.
The idea is that the members of the card scheme will effectively be a fuel buying cooperative purchasing fuel through Scania.
“While larger fleets are able to benefit from bulk purchases of fuel, the same does not hold true for smaller operators,” said David Hickman, director – services development and service sales.
“Not only does that cost them, it also puts them at a considerable competitive disadvantage. So the Scania Fuel Card has been specifically designed with owner-drivers and smaller fleets in mind – although we’d be happy to welcome larger players into the scheme too.”
The service will be administered for Scania by The Fuelcard People, which is part of DCC plc, one of the largest fuel distributors in the UK.
