Two leading fleet management providers have joined forces to give customers preferential rates on their products to curb the continuing strains caused by the economic climate.
Vehicle tracking specialist Navman Wireless and The Fuelcard Company believe their respective customers could benefit greatly from the partnership.
"After spotting an opportunity to further help our customers reduce their fuel costs, we are delighted to have teamed up with The Fuelcard Company to offer a preferentially priced fuel card that could significantly cut fleet fuel costs" said Peter Millichap, UK Marketing Manager at Navman Wireless.
The tracking specialist is offering a 20 per cent reduction on vehicle tracking hardware to The Fuelcard Company customers.
In return, their clients are being given the opportunity to save, across the year, up to four pence-per-litre on the national average diesel price, with an exclusively fixed-weekly rate available only to them.
Customers will also have access to thousands of filling-stations UK-wide with a variety of fuel cards to choose from such as Shell, Texaco, Esso and Keyfuels cards.
Moreover, the cards themselves will be provided free of charge – a saving of around £6 per card.
Lee Atkinson, Programs Manager at The Fuelcard Company added: "We were well aware of the great opportunities that vehicle tracking presents for fleets – from helping cut-costs to increasing operating efficiency.
"So following our initial discussions with Navman Wireless, we knew immediately that this was a partnership that could prove extremely beneficial for both ours, and their customers.
"From our point of view, being able to offer Navman Wireless products at a preferential rate means we can add-value to our pledge to help customers run more cost effective and productive fleets – it’s a great reciprocal relationship."
The deal has now been officially launched to both Navman Wireless and The Fuelcard Company customers.
The Fuelcard Company is one of several similar operations owned by FleetCor, which has recently acquired a number of fuel card brands including UK and Ireland business Retail Decisions (ReD).
