The FUEL CARD GROUP has signed a framework agreement with the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), making it easy for public sector vehicles to access cut-price fuel. The Agreement, RM1027 – Fuel Cards and Associated Services, covers all group brands including The Fuelcard People, Fuel Card Services and MileageCount.
It is designed to greatly simplify the procurement of diesel and petrol, and helps to avoid the £2 transaction fees imposed on public sector customers by other suppliers.
Steve Clarke, marketing manager for The Fuel Card Group, said: ‘Anybody in the public sector running vehicles can now arrange fuel cards within minutes, rather than weeks. Whichever fuel card they choose from our range, they can expect to save up to 4p per litre for both diesel and petrol. They can also be assured that there will not be transaction charges.’
The Framework Agreement can be used by organisations across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.
Steve Clarke said: ‘Whether a public sector body is running just a couple of van or thousands of mixed vehicles, it can now cut its fleet running costs within minutes. The CCS has done all of the legwork, so that an organisation needs only to choose the fuel card or cards that suit its specific needs.’
