Pros and Cons of Fuel Cards

Are fuel cards a fleet manager’s best friend?

Fuel cards have become increasingly more popular over the years because they help fleet managers keep an eye on the fuel consumption of the company’s vehicles. ARI’s Andy Hall, assistant manager of fuel and GMS products, recently spoke with Utility Fleet Professional about the benefits of fuel cards and how they can help fleet managers.

Prior to fuel cards, credits cards allowed “drivers to purchase virtually anything they want without restriction, resulting in misuse and abuse,” Hall said. Fuel cards are an attractive solution because “Customizable controls and program parameters are among the top benefits of a fuel card, as compared to other options. When you combine fuel card data with technology, such as our ARI insights platform, you can create custom dashboards with alerts and key performance indicators, allowing you to manage by exception and quickly identify opportunities to drive savings.”
