How Voyager Fuel Cards Benefit Trucking Companies

[fa icon="calendar"] Aug 9, 2018 11:19:00 AM / by Piper Bloom

Voyager Fuel Card helps Trucking Companies

For businesses that operate off the major highways, finding a fuel card company with extensive locations outside of truck stops is essential to minimizing costs and inconvenience. With over 230,000 locations across the United States, it’s easy to refuel up across all 50 states, ensuring that your drivers can get back on the road quickly. In addition, the Voyager card will help you secure and monitor your purchasing and easily track your fuel spend.


Universal Acceptance

If your company operates in areas where truck stops are limited, it is essential to find a solution that will allow you to choose the most convenient location. The Voyager fuel card is accepted at over 90% of all fuel retailers in the United States, including Chevron, BP, Exxon, Pilot, Love’s, and Shell. For a list of all brands and maintenance locations, click here. Even if your business 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.

 

Find the Best Gas Station with the Voyager App

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 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 Complete Guide to Voyager Fuel Card Controls can help you determine which controls and alerts work best for your fleet.

 

Optional Maintenance

Even if you’re diligent with vehicle maintenance, surprises on the road can create unexpected repairs. The Voyager card provides the option to allow maintenance at 60,000 sites across the country, so your drivers can quickly take care of everything from flat tires to engine problems without having to wait for an alternative form of payment. 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.

 

IFTA Filing

If your trucks cross state lines, your company needs to file an International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) Report on a regular basis. With our card, all of your transactions are captured on our invoices and reports , so you do not need to gather receipts. There is a complimentary IFTA Report that includes the date, fuel type purchased, seller, purchaser, sale amount, vehicle, and gallons. It is sorted by state and vehicle to simplify your IFTA filing.

 

Conclusion

If your trucking company is looking for a solution that will minimize both costs and hassle, P-Fleet’s Voyager fuel card may be a good fit. With over 230,000 locations across the United States, your drivers will be able to quickly fill up and resume their route, even if truck stops in your area are limited. In addition, purchase controls, optional maintenance, and simple IFTA filing can benefit trucking companies of all sizes.
