March 2014 sees the first-year anniversary of the RHA FTA Fuelcard which is administered and managed by The Fuelcard Company.
In March 2013 members of the Road Haulage Association and Freight Transport Association gained exclusive access to discounted fuel through this new joint fuel card. Existing RHA volumes have increased by 11% since the launch of the card one year ago.
The RHA FTA fuel card creates savings for RHA members by providing competitive weekly fixed prices on diesel, extensive fuel and mpg reporting combined with simplifying administration and reducing costs.
The network of more than 1,830 sites includes Moto motorway service stations and conveniently located ‘A’ road sites and provides customers with one highly competitive weekly fixed price - with no motorway surcharges. More than 500 sites are hgv-accessible and can accommodate a full 44-tonne artic, with more than 250 others accepting tippers and rigid vehicles. All this information is available by using the site directory, Sat-Nav downloads, the new Smartphone App or the online site locator. You can use the RHA FTA Fuel Card whenever you see the Keyfuels sign.
The free extensive reporting provides mpg, transaction and exception reporting along with 70 other reports, set to your parameters, will increase fuel efficiency. Combined with the ability to set individual fill limits and block out of hours card use, the RHA FTA Fuelcard is an essential service in combating fuel fraud.
Cards are free to members for the first year (then a small annual charge each card per year thereafter) and is provided by The Fuelcard Company. There are no set up or contract fees- just savings.
RHA Director of Operations Richard Ellithorne said: It is vitally important that you stay in control of your fuel costs at all times. The RHA FTA Fuel Card, provided by The Fuelcard Company UK Ltd, will offer you a consistently competitive fuel price at strategically-located refuelingoutlets across the UK”.
“We work closely with the Road Haulage Association to provide benefits to RHA members by driving savings through fuel efficiency, a keen price and improving the network, with more HGV-accessible, more main road and motorway and more 24-hour sites than any other single fixed price network in the UK”, added Mike Gillson from The Fuelcard Company.
