You own a branded truck stop with an unbranded diesel island. The harsh reality is you’re losing money every time a truck passes because your stop isn’t able to process Over The Road (OTR) fleet cards.
Word gets out. Then, not only are truckers not stopping to buy your diesel, they’re talking among themselves about it. More of them are avoiding your stop. This results in lost revenue.
For many truck stop owners, this operational misstep isn’t purposeful. You’re simply too overwhelmed with day-to-day operations. The Financial Fuel Services team specializes in negotiating the set-up, merchant interfacing, and installation of new processing systems for truck stops.
Here’s why it’s important to make the switch, what it entails, and how we can help you do it.
Why It’s Critical to Change Processing at Your Stop’s Unbranded Diesel Island
If your truck stop’s diesel island isn’t accepting OTR fleet cards, then it’s losing money. Truckers can’t use their OTR fleet cards. As a result, they go somewhere else. Your reputation as a stop that doesn’t accept OTR fleet cards grows. It’s hard to come back from.
You want to tap into that market as early as possible in your business ownership tenure, even if you’re only getting trucker overflow from larger, nearby stops.
