North American energy supplier and logistics firm Mansfield Energy is partnering up with U.S. Bank to launch a mobile fueling program in an effort to help fleet managers save on refueling costs.
In a press release issued Monday (November 12), Mansfield and U.S. Bank noted that fleet managers are often facing extra costs in driver labor when they pay to have their drivers to drive off-route to refuel at a retail fuel gas station. Mobile refueling solutions may reduce spending for fleets, the firms said, allowing vehicles to be refueled while drivers are off the clock.
Mansfield will provide mobile refueling solutions to existing users of U.S. Bank‘s Voyager fleet card tool. At the same time, fleet professionals using the card will also be able to see consolidated spend data across their retail and mobile refueling operations, as well as non-fuel purchases, for enhanced spend visibility.
In a statement, Mansfield Energy Senior Vice President of Specialty Products Andy Austin said the collaboration with U.S. Bank will also help fleet managers reduce the time and energy it takes to manage fuel spend.
“Monitoring fuel data can be time consuming and resource-intensive — especially for fleets that utilize several fueling methods,” he said. “While fleet cards used at retail fueling locations can generate quality transaction data, retail fuel isn’t always the easiest or most economical option.”
He added that Voyager Fleet Card users will be able to see transaction data from mobile refueling costs integrated into the data from their other transactions for “enhanced visibility and control over all of their fueling transactions.”
U.S. Bank Global Transportation Senior Vice President Jeff Pape added that U.S. Bank Voyager customers will have access to mobile refueling services that Mansfield provides across all 50 states, allowing fleet managers “to see a full view of their fleet’s fuel data across retail and mobile refueling all in one place.”
