What is a Fleet Card?

A Guttman Energy Fleet Fuel Credit Card

There are lots of moving parts (literally) when it comes to keeping your fleet on the road. You have to consider maintenance needs, driver hiring and training, customer relations, and more. But perhaps the most fundamental part of your fleet’s operation is fuel. Many fleet owners use a business credit card to track their fuel purchases, but a dedicated fleet fuel card can provide even more benefits. 

Fleet Card Basics

A fleet fuel card is a payment card for truck drivers, fleet managers, and independent owner-operators that enables them to purchase gasoline and diesel fuel at authorized gas stations and convenience stores. 

Fleet cards not only allow your drivers to purchase fuel, but can also be used for related expenses like maintenance costs. Fuel cards also allow managers and owner/operators to keep track of expenses and budgeting with simple reporting features. 

Benefits of Fleet Cards 

Fleet cards provide lots of benefits, namely in terms of control. Fleet managers can see which stations drivers are fueling at and how much is spent every time the card is used. Through a connected online portal, managers can also set budget limits, see real-time transaction information, and access special savings that traditional business credit cards don’t typically offer. 

You may also opt for a fleet card because of its increased security. Since you can set budget limits and control employee spending, you can reduce or even eliminate theft. Drivers have to enter their unique ID number before making a purchase, offering an extra layer of protection against unauthorized use. 

When it comes time to run the numbers, fleet cards provide much more robust reports than conventional business credit cards. Reports can be generated with a simple click at any time, so you know you’re always getting the most accurate information. On top of that, you can view itemized reports that account for every single purchase on your account so nothing slips through the cracks. 

Finally, fleet cards offer comprehensive and personalized support from your customer service team. At Guttman Energy, every client is assigned a dedicated account representative who will get to know your business from the inside out. We’re always available for any questions or concerns you might have, and we work to ensure your fleet card continues to suit you as your fleet grows.
