What to Look for When Shopping for a Diesel Fuel Card for Your Trucking Company


If you’re tired of wasting money by fueling up using cash or credit for your trucking company, then a fuel card is the solution you need. But all fuel card companies aren’t the same, let us help you figure out what to look for when you’re shopping for a diesel fuel card so you can find the best one for your business.

The research phase doesn’t have to be long and complicated, just stick to these questions:


  • How much are they charging just to get the card and is there a membership fee?
    • Some fuel cards charge fees to activate the card and there will be an annual fee for just holding the card.
  • Where are the in-network fuel locations and how many are there?
    • You’ll want to find a fuel card that has in-network locations nationwide, you’ll also want to think about where you prefer to fuel up and if that is included as an in-network fuel stop.
  • What are the transactions fees or what other kind of hidden fees could there be?
    • There might be a charge each time you use the card, but you’ll want to find one that won’t charge you a transaction fee for fuel purchases at in-network locations.
  • What is their average fuel discount?
    • How does that discount compare to other fuel card providers?
  • Do they have other value-added services?
    • Getting great fuel discounts can be enough for a lot of trucking company owners but if they have more discounts that would help your business then that can make your decision even easier.

The TCS Fuel Card offers all of these things and more!

Let us tell you a little bit about the benefits of getting a TCS Fuel Card. First of all, it’s free to set up and to use. We don’t have any activation fees or an annual membership fee.
