Does your truck stop accept the major Over-the-Road (OTR) fleet cards such as Comdata, T-Chek, EFS, Fleet One or TCH? The advantages of these cards far outweigh the associated costs giving you an increased ROI by driving more business to your establishment.
An estimated 50% of all fuel purchases in the United States come from commercial and government trucking services using fleet cards.
While that’s an impressive fuel number, let’s look at some of the other collateral benefits to adding them to your pay at the pump options.
A driver has to eat.
Truck drivers are given an average per diem of $49/day for food and drink. If they’re pulling into your establishment to fuel up, chances are they’re going to purchase high profit food and beverage items as well. Did you know that truck stops sell more coffee than your standard retail convenience store, and the average commercial truck driver spends more than $600/yr on coffee! You can easily tap into these statistics just by adding OTR Fleet Cards to your business.
Trucking companies use fleet cards over standard credit/debit cards to maintain control of spending on fuel and repairs, receive valuable data about their fleet and cut down on employees taking advantage of company funds. Accepting these will open up your business to new fleets and create a partnership between you and the trucking companies while adding value to your business’ image.
