Called Fuel Solution, the service aims to help companies control their expenditure on fuel and reduce fuel costs and also to prepare them for future legislation affecting fuel purchases, look at how driver training can help reduce fuel usage and how fuel consumption affects whole life costs.
It also includes a range of fuel fact sheets covering topics such as fuel taxation and fuel and the cash driver. The company says its Lex Fuel Card, provided by fuel card partner Overdrive, is at the heart of its new Fuel Solution. Customers can also access their account on the internet using the company's Interactive online fuel card management service.
'We have taken more of a wide-ranging view on fuel cards, ranging from how companies can reduce administration and cost to looking at how fuel cards affect tax, legislation and wholelife costs,' said Lex Fuel Solution's product manager Carl Price. 'This should help fleets who have various degrees of experience with fuel cards.
There is no doubt that fuel cards save fleets a great deal of administration time, but making sure the company car policy uses petrol, diesel and alternatively-fuelled cars in the right environments can also save money,' he added.
