PacLease announced a new fuel program partnership for its full-service lease and contract maintenance customers. PacLease has partnered with Multi Service Fuel Card for its co-branded fuel card, called PacFuel.
With Multi Service Fuel Card as the PacLease fuel card partner, PacFuel customers are provided custom one-on-one consulting to map out the best fuel strategies and potential savings.
The enhanced fuel card itself is available in two versions: OTR (over the road) for use with more than 8,000 commercial truck stop locations – major chains and independents – and local, which provides mixed fleets the ability to fuel at street-level gas stations and is accepted at more than 330,000 fuel and maintenance locations.
“We did extensive research with our customers and identified 28 key components that they wanted in a fuel program,” said Michelle Harry, PacLease’s director of marketing. “What we’re bringing to market represents what we feel is a best-in-class program that marries fuel-cost savings with top-level consulting to maximize a customer’s fuel investment, as well as strategic fueling locations with amenities – such as parking and restaurants. And, it’s scalable – providing both our small and large customers with great benefits.”
The new PacFuel card and corresponding app give PacLease customers route planning capabilities plus cash prices at all locations in the network and added discounts at more than 1,200 truck stops throughout the United States and Canada.
“That adds up quickly,” said Harry. “And, if one of our customers has an existing relationship with a major fuel chain, we can go in and build off that relationship and bring potentially more benefits to the fleet.”
Unlike other fuel cards, there are no enrollment fees nor transaction fees (or swipe fees) at in-network locations.
“This allows PacLease customers to realize the full benefits of the card, and all the savings that go along with it,” said Multi Service Fuel Card’s Aaron Decker, nothing that since 1978 the company has been developing fuel programs specifically for trucking fleets with a priority in customization.
On the back end, fleet managers can control use of the card, complete with purchase limits. Easy-to-navigate online reporting tools allow managers to have complete visibility on fuel purchases and savings. And there is 24/7 customer support for customers.
“It’s a customizable and complete package, which aligns with our core PacLease values of offering fleets customized full-service lease and rental programs,” said Harry. “We know this will be a big hit with our customers.”
