It’s estimated that 20% of a company’s fleet budget is spent on fuel, which is why it’s increasingly important for businesses to track and manage fuel spend. Along with Telematics and Fuel Efficient Driver Training, Fuel cards can provide your business with greater control; allowing you track and analyse driver fuel spend and ultimately helping to drive down overall fleet costs.
Reducing fuel fraud
With a variety of controls set up, fuel cards can help to safeguard your exposure to fraudulent fuel activity. Assigning specific vehicle registration numbers to cards can help to provide protection and by continually monitoring fuel card usage alerts can be set-up to notify of any suspicious purchases.
When it comes to fuel fraud, drivers can play their part in helping to prevent it. Download a high resolution version of our best practice tips on combating fuel car fraud here.
