Mobile Fueling Explained- ImpacFleet fueling is the management method a company uses to fuel their fleet of trucks and cargo. The most common fleet fueling methods include fleet fuel cards, mobile fueling, on-site bulk fuel tanks, cash, and generic credit cards.

Mobile fueling, also known as wet-hose fueling, occurs when a fuel truck comes to a truck yard and individually replenishes each truck with fuel. In terms of money and time, mobile fueling is a more economical option opposed to off-site fueling.

Mobile fueling has been used in many areas for decades. Previously, this method was only done for off-road vehicles; now, its conducted in various areas like farms, logging operations, and construction sites.

For companies who drive local routes and return to the truck yard daily, mobile fueling is a prevalent choice. This method of fleet fueling offers the opportunity for supply, service and risk management through real-time transaction data and fixed price fuel hedging solutions. The convenience associated with this method is also highly reputable. Mobile fueling distributors have the ability to service a company’s fleet overnight or whenever they are not in use. This flexibility allows ample time to resolve potential equipment issues the fleet manager may encounter.

Through wet-hose fueling, storing fuel on company grounds is no longer needed, eliminating environmental and safety concerns. In addition to these positive advantages, mobile fueling can provide a fleet-based company with a superior amount of savings on their fuel expenses. Wet hosing is a cost-effective method of fleet fueling for large fleets of trucks that more commercial businesses are incorporating into their fueling practices.

Fleet Card Advantages

00Articles, Company NewsTags: , , ,

Fleet Card Advantages-Imapc In today’s competitive marketplace, identifying ways to reduce expenses and maximize productivity are crucial components of a business’ success. For many companies, fuel can be one of the most overlooked expenses, however the use of fleet cards is becoming an effective solution to analyze this matter.

Fleet cards pose as management tools that allow business owners to control fuel expenses initiated by their employees. These credit cards’ capabilities can help a company with as few as two vehicles achieve a fair percent savings in fuel expenditures within the first year of implementation.

Fleet cards offer companies detailed reporting on a cardholder’s purchase history that a typical gas card does not provide. An automatic single invoice, e-receipt based, eliminates time wasted on organizing reimbursement checks. Additionally, the cards can reveal useful information about employees, like underperforming vehicles.

Fleet Card Advantages-Impac

Fleet cards can habilitate cost-control restrictions, imposed by a business owner, resulting in fuel theft control and the prevention of unauthorized behavior. A set of restrictions can be unique to each driver and any questionable activity, such as purchasing after-hours, can be addressed or rectified immediately.

Fleet cards also offer employee support to ensure drivers are not expected to use their own money for work expenses, reducing the worries associated with tracking receipts and reimbursements – ultimately, liberating smoother operations for the business.

Impac provides the most comprehensive tracking and reporting fleet card program in the industry today. Our cards are tailored to meet a company’s specific needs, aiding them in tax exemption, discount processing, online system access, and card level purchase controls.

Fleet fueling is the management method a company uses to fuel their fleet of trucks and cargo. The most common fleet fueling methods include fleet fuel cards, mobile fueling, on-site bulk fuel tanks, cash, and generic credit cards.

Within a fleet-based company, for every dollar earned, approximately 95.2 cents are spent on operating costs. Since the margin of costs versus profits is thin, fleet companies attempt to save money in any area they can, especially within fuel expenses.

Membership to a fleet fuel card can generate annual savings for carriers of any size. Beyond saving money on fuel purchases, a fuel card offers spending control, fleet management, enhanced company communication, fraud control, and savings on other services, like maintenance.

With fleet fuel cards, per-gallon fuel discounts are negotiated between a merchant and a fuel card company, and with each fuel purchase, the fuel card company will reimburse the calculated savings in a consolidated invoice via mail or e-receipt.


Although not every company utilizes fleet fuel cards, more businesses than ever are beginning to use them to easier manage and regulate their fuel expenses. Credit cards are still accepted at the pumps by fleet-based companies, however many benefits, like that of a fleet fuel card, are voided, such as discounts and identifiable fuel theft incidents.

Depending on the size and geographical location of a trucking company, different fleet fueling methods might work more efficiently than others. For example, fleet fuel cards work well for all types of commercial companies, big or small; mobile fueling works best for companies that have local routes; on-site bulk fuel tanks work best for large trucking companies; and using cash or credit cards work best for small trucking companies.
