Voyager Fuel Card helps Trucking Companies

To find a fuel card for trucking companies that operate off the major highways, the card must have extensive locations outside of truck stops to minimize costs and inconvenience. With over 320,000 locations across the United States, it’s easy to refuel up across all 50 states with the Voyager card, ensuring that your drivers can get back on the road quickly.

Many trucking companies need a fuel card with universal acceptance.

If your company operates in areas where truck stops are limited, then finding a fuel card for trucking companies that will allow you to choose the most convenient location is essential. Voyager is accepted at over 95% of all fuel retailers in the United States, including Chevron, BP, Exxon, Mobil, Pilot, Love’s, Shell, and Speedway. Even if your routes takes you into rural, metro, or residential areas, drivers can refuel quickly at these easy-to-find stations, so you can get your trucks back on the road.

With more locations to choose from and access to most independent truck stops, fleets can low cost shop. There are typically fuel sites and truck stops that price at a discount to attract traffic. With a universal fuel card, they can purchase fuel at these less expensive sites. 

Many fuel cards for trucking companies have apps that drivers can input their routes ahead of time to find the best prices and necessary amenities along their drive. They can even filter by “Oversized Vehicles” to find gas stations that accommodate larger trucks. Once they determine which station best fits their needs, drivers can get directions directly from the app.

Purchase controls and alerts

One of the biggest challenges trucking companies face is controlling their employees' fuel card purchases. Customizable controls and alerts simplify management of the program and reduce misuse. Depending on your business needs, you can limit purchases to weekdays; limit the number of transactions per day, week, or month; limit purchase amounts by day, week or month; lock out certain states; and more. P-Fleet’s effective guide to fuel card controls can help you determine which controls and alerts work best for trucking company fuel card.

Drivers can even use the Voyager app to find the nearest repair center, which cuts down on the time your trucks are out of commission and allows you to complete your deliveries with minimal delays.
