U.S. Bank and commercial fuel station operator Quarles Petroleum have reached an agreement that gives holders of the U.S. Bank Voyager Fleet Card, or any of the bank’s Voyager Network fleet partners, access to 125 Quarles unattended card-lock stations in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, Delaware, and West Virginia.

“Quarles provides our Voyager Network cardholders with an outstanding new fueling option,” said U.S. Bank Payment Sales and Client Relationship Executive Jeff Rankin. “Quarles unattended fuel stations are specifically designed for fleet users, offering easy access to a variety of quality fuels for commercial vehicles of all sizes. The Quarles Universal Card has long been accepted on the U.S. Bank Voyager Network as part of our channel partner agreement. Now the reverse is also true – Voyager Network cards are accepted at Quarles locations. We welcome the addition of their secure unattended commercial fueling stations to our national network.”

The U.S. Bank Voyager Network is one of the largest fleet-fueling and maintenance acceptance networks in the United States, with more than 230,000 locations in 50 states and Puerto Rico. The Network offers sophisticated purchase control, expense monitoring and data reporting that simplifies fleet expense management. The Quarles Network consists of unattended card locks offering high- speed diesel dispensers along with auto diesel and regular gasoline to commercial vehicles. Quarles currently offers Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) at several locations and is in the process of expanding its availability. Convenient separate dispensers allow fleets to fill the DEF tanks when purchasing diesel.

“Quarles has built one of the largest independent unattended fuel-site networks in the country through the acceptance of the Quarles proprietary card, and now is the time to open up our Network to fleets that utilize major fleet cards such as the U.S. Bank Voyager Fleet Card,” said Quarles Sales and Marketing Vice President Steve Fowler.  “We look forward to this expansion of our relationship with the U.S. Bank Voyager Network and to providing their commercial customers with the products they need to run their fleets.”
