Fleet FAQ? Fuel Management

Q. How can GPS vehicle tracking lower my insurance premiums?

A.While insurance companies do not require all vehicles to have GPS systems installed, there are a number of benefits for fleet owners and the greater population in doing so. Not only are GPS tracking systems now more affordable than ever, they often attract discounts of up to 15 percent on insurance costs.


Some insurers also pay companies to implement GPS tracking technology into their fleets. That’s because telematics units can help drivers avoid accidents, and can provide a wealth of very useful data in the event of litigation arising from an expensive, potentially catastrophic accident.

Q. How do partnerships inform future development of the connected car?

A. Partnership has been a core WEX value forever. And some of the legacy partners that we have are evolving, so those partnerships are looking and feeling a little different as everyone continues to evolve their products. We had a discussion with one of our big, long-standing FMC partners, and traditionally it's been supplying cards and fuel management service to their customers.
