When you have a fleet of vehicles, you have two choices for keeping them fueled up. One is to provide your drivers with fuel cards. The other is to have fuel tanks on site. There are a number of reasons why setting up fuel delivery services to fuel your fleet on site makes a lot of sense. Here are some of the top reasons:
- Time savings – It takes time to fuel up a vehicle, particularly a large truck, and that isn’t the best use of your driver’s time. If they could instead return the truck each day and pick it up in the morning with it having been fueled for them, they get more time on the road doing deliveries.
- Cost savings – Depending on the size of your fleet, one or two people could be in charge of refueling at the end of the day. Since these would typically be lower paying positions than the drivers, you’ll save money. Also, bulk fuel delivery services are generally lower in price.
- Security – Doing the fueling onsite means you have 100% control of the vehicles that are fueled. With a card you do not have that surety. Also, cards can get misplaced, stolen, and otherwise misused. Fuel theft is big business, but you can nip it in the bud by having full control over who gets fuel and when.
- Flexibility – When you receive fuel delivery services, you will be able to fuel up your fleet on your timetable. You’ll also be able to easily keep up with reporting. Most fuel delivery services are very helpful with providing the information you need.
