Barton Petroleum provides fuel cards in partnership with Keyfuels, the market leading provider of commercial fuel cards and fuel management solutions, who have recently added a further 279 fuel sites to its increasing network, ensuring its HGV and LCV customers have access to the largest and most convenient wholesale priced fuel network in the UK.
The announcement, part of the company’s commitment to add value to the service it provides its customers, means that fleet managers and their drivers now have access to 1790 sites nationwide.
The network expansion includes 57 new sites suitable for both HGV and LCV vehicles, four new truckstops specifically for HGV, as well as over 30 new sites in Scotland. The remaining sites are all suitable for LCV and car fleets, helping Keyfuels increase its penetration and offering to the LCV sector.
Peter Bridgen, Keyfuels’ MD, comments: “The Keyfuels brand is well established in the HGV sector, and whilst there are still growth opportunities for us in our core transport and logistics market, this continued network expansion is also allowing us to improve our offering to the LCV market.
“The key issues affecting fleet operators in both of these markets are the price of fuel, network convenience, choice and consistency. At Keyfuels, not only do we work with our customers to make sure they are getting the best commercial fuel prices, but we also work tirelessly to ensure our sites are in the most convenient of locations.
“We are therefore always looking to work with the forecourt network to increase the number of sites we can offer our customers and we are delighted that this means we can offer the largest wholesale priced network on the market.”
Keyfuels manage billions of litres of fuel each year for some of Europe’s largest HGV and LCV fleets, offering operators an unrivalled mix of multi-branded sites, from motorway service stations to oil company sites, supermarkets and truckstops.
Along with offering fuel cards, Keyfuels’ expert consultants work with fleet managers to develop fuel management programmes that will reduce an operators fuel costs and make their fleet more efficient.
Peter continued: “We know that fuel accounts for at least of third of operating costs within the HGV and LCV sectors, which is a huge expenditure on the bottom line. We work with operators to develop strategies that will lower these costs and improve profitability through state-of-the-art management and reporting systems. This can also include integrating telematics data to provide up-to-date information on fuel usage and the fuel efficiency of drivers.”
