Against the backdrop of a shrinking forecourt market, fuelcard and fuel management solutions provider Keyfuels says it has increased its network by more than 50% in the last few years.
Keyfuels, which manages billions of litres of fuel each year for some of Europe’s largest fleets, has more than 1,500 sites to give fleets of all sizes access for HGV, LCV and car fleets.
Alex Harper, head of sales at Keyfuels, said: “Twenty years ago there were 20,000 fuel sites in the UK. Today, there are less than 9,000. Despite this declining forecourt market, Keyfuels network has been constantly growing, last year alone, 100 new sites were added to our network.
“The aim now is to have 1,600 sites available by the end of 2011. Our network, backed up by state-of-the-art management and reporting systems, is the key strength of our business. This offers fleet operators convenience, choice, flexibility and consistency, allowing them to manage their fuel more effectively.”
The company works with customers to develop fuel management programmes that will reduce a fleet operator’s costs. This includes the integration of telematics data and analysis to provide operators with up-to-date information on fuel usage and the fuel efficiency of drivers.
Keyfuels says this allows customers to significantly lower fuel costs and improve profitability by not just focusing on fuel cards and the per litre cost of fuel, but by helping to increase efficiencies and improve the management of how that fuel is used.
