Centrica, the parent company of British Gas, has chosen the Barclaycard Fuel+ fuel card for its company car and van fleet.
Barclaycard Fuel+, in association with TMC, combines a fuel expenses Barclaycard with audited mileage and comprehensive management information. It has Chip and PIN security and global Visa acceptance, enabling Centrica drivers to refuel at the vast majority of forecourts in the UK.
The TMC mileage system will give the company’s fleet managers visibility of their staff’s fuel spend and reduce costs by streamlining and automating processes.
The contract was won following a competitive tender process and will run for three years.
Steve Winter, head of fleet at Centrica, said: “Barclaycard Fuel+, in association with TMC, is an exciting opportunity to take our fuel programme to the next level. The programme provides unique insight into behaviours and gaps that were previously not visible and difficult to manage or impact. Most importantly, the programme will enhance the ability of our drivers to prioritise safety and deliver cost savings to the business.”
Michael Pechner, head of multinational corporate business at Barclaycard, said: “We are delighted to be working with Centrica, providing a fuel program that will not only be simpler for their drivers and fleet managers but will also help the business reduce its fuel costs."
