Benefits to Finding the Best Fuel Card

If you’re looking for help with driver retention, fuel discounts, account management, and more, a fuel card for trucking companies can be an excellent tool to save you money. Here are four benefits to finding the best fuel card and how it can help your trucking company.

Fuel Cards Save Your Trucking Company Money

Fuel cards can give you deep fuel discounts, which help you save big at the pump. When you don’t use a fuel card, you’re missing out on big savings. For example, TCS clients who fill up at major and second tier truck stops save an average of $0.15 per gallon. That’s about $18.00 per 120-gallon-fill-up (based on average diesel prices at $2.40/gallon.) When clients use the TCS Fuel Finder to find the truck stops near them with the best prices, savings can increase to around $0.18 per gallon. So if an average truck uses about 15,840 gallons of diesel fuel per year, these discounts could save you around $2,376 to $2,851 per year, per truck!

Fuel Cards Help with Driver Retention

Want to keep your best drivers? Passing on fuel discounts to your drivers can help create loyalty. By sharing discounts with them, you’ll develop a stronger relationship and increase the likelihood they’ll stay with your company because they feel taken care of. The best fuel card for you will be a card that gives your drivers fuel discounts at truck stops along their routes and truck stops they like to visit.

Fuel Cards Offer Fuel Management Tools

A good fuel card will help make managing your fuel expenses easy. Look for a fuel card that gives you complete transparency and control to see your current balances and card limits, issue checks, and statements, create users and customize permissions and spending. TCS offers real-time account updates 24/7 via a website and free mobile app, allowing you to manage your fuel account no matter if you’re on the road or away from the office.

Fuel Cards Provide Customer Service

Your trucking business doesn’t stop on the weekends or after 5:00, so it’s important to get a fuel card that gives you what you need when you need it. Look for a fuel card that provides responsive customer service and gives you open and honest communication. TCS representatives are always available 24/7 to assist you with whatever you need.


If you want to do business with a fuel card company that’s honest and truly cares about helping you save money, give us a call. Your carriers will get fuel discounts typically only available to big fleets and exceptional customer service that only TransConnect can provide, call 844-827-7705 or sign up today!
