The RHA FTA Fuel Card has drawn five million litres of fuel in a month, saving members a combined £150,000 against national average pump prices in December 2013, according to the FTA.
The Road Haulage Association (RHA) and the Freight Transport Association (FTA), jointly launched the RHA FTA Fuel Card on 1 March 2013, which has grown in popularity with the freight and logistics industry.
Free to new subscribers for the first 12 months of use, it offers both RHA and FTA members exclusive access to discounted fuel with savings of £125 a month per HGV on pump prices, and can be used at more than 1,800 sites nationwide.
Sam Law, FTA General Manager - Shopfta, FTA Affinities and PCN Administration Service said:
"At a time when fuel represents nearly 40% of operators’ costs, it is essential that every penny is made to count, and the RHA FTA Fuel Card offers members the perfect opportunity to save."
The RHA FTA Fuel Card uses the Fuelcard Company’s online fuel management systems, ensuring that operators can monitor how every penny has been spent. Claimed to have the largest reporting suite in the industry, the Fuelcard Company can provide mpg reports, the ability to integrate with your bulk tank and data feeds to telematics systems, if required.
Members also have access to The Fuelcard Company’s smartphone app so drivers can always find a fuel station.
