How Fleet Fueling Helps Our Economy

Driving the Economy with Fleet Fueling Benefits

It’s no secret at this point, the Guttman Energy Fleet Fuel Card gives big benefits to fleets of all sizes. However, we have also been able to impact the overall effect of our industry on the economy in a big way. Our card helps clients to fuel more intelligently and operate more productively. Because of this, we enable more and more businesses to participate in an industry that is incredibly profitable and crucial to the health of our country’s economy in many ways.  So, ho do we know that fleet fueling helps our economy?

Simply fueling fleets has significant effects which go well beyond individual operations. It is estimated that 44.8 billion gallons of fuel are consumed by trucks used for business alone. So even if drivers fuel just one truck per day, when all is totaled up, truck transportation supports more than 11.3 million total jobs, or 5.6 percent of total U.S. employment. With Guttman Energy’s Fleet Fuel Card discounts, our clients realize huge economies based on volume. This allows fleet managers to fuel more trucks and allot for longer trips, with no worries about the cost of gas or diesel. 

These benefits are making fleets more productive, which is also very good news for our economy. When trucks can’t efficiently deliver the goods companies need, it causes serious inflation. In fact, about 71% of the goods seen in stores are brought in by over-the-road hauling—not even including the raw materials needed for production of certain other goods. When trucking fleets can make shipments in a productive manner, it keeps shelves full, and in turn, prices down. 

When looking at the big picture of trucking, it becomes clear that fleet fueling helps our economy & the benefits our cardholders receive are only the beginning. To learn more, contact a fleet fuel card expert at 724.489.5199
