BRENTWOOD, TN - Comdata Corporation has announced an alliance with 360FuelCard. The agreement represents a new approach to environmental fleet card products. Comdata will provide corporate fuel cards, as well as the network of fuel and service sites, for 360FuelCard customers. This agreement will enable petroleum marketers to utilize the Comdata platform to expand their commercial fleet programs, while leveraging 360 sales and marketing programs to enhance business at the fuel island and inside the store.
A critical component of the 360FuelCard program is the relationship with Carbonfund.org. 360FuelCard has made an ongoing commitment to give back by donating 10 percent of profits to environmental causes across the U.S., including Carbonfund.org.
"Our alliance with 360FuelCard will help both fleets and petroleum marketers increase efficiency in their operations," said Randy Morgan, senior vice president and general manager of Comdata. "The relationship with Carbonfund.org also helps underscore Comdata's growing commitment to environmentally responsible business practices and helping fleet customers offset the fuel they consume."
"Companies need to purchase fossil fuels for the vehicles that move their goods or carry their salespeople," said Steve Fowler, vice president of business development for 360FuelCard. "We are giving them a way to reduce their carbon footprint by doing something they need to do anyway. All of our cards are produced on recycled plastics, and our reporting and invoicing is done online, reducing the paper needed by many programs."
The 360FuelCard is targeted toward petroleum marketers who want to build their fleet volume without adding in-house sales and marketing functions. The card is universally accepted, but marketers also have the option to join a preferred network for additional benefits. For these retailers, 360 will perform sales and marketing directly to the fleets around their fuel sites, as well as providing marketing campaigns to bring the fleet drivers into the stores.
