With fuel costs still high, fleet payments platform AtoB has teamed with convenience retailer Casey’s to offer customers lower fuel costs when they use AtoB’s Visa fleet card.

Beginning Wednesday (Nov. 16), AtoB card holders can save seven cents per gallon on all purchases at Casey’s 2,400 stores, the companies said in a news release.

“The discount is highly competitive and straightforward: No activation or redemption is required, and savings are applied automatically, with the discount reflected on the customer’s weekly transaction report,” the release said.

As PYMNTS noted earlier this year, the trucking business — which relies on speed — deals with processes that often set up roadblocks, with finance teams saddled with handling expenses for fuel, truck repairs, towing, parking, truck washes, loading and unloading fees.

But an emerging segment of the FinTech space has set about overcoming those obstacles, freeing fleet managers from tedium and inefficiency with solutions designed to address challenges that are unique to the sector.

Earlier this year, the Car IQ fleet payment solutions platform launched a partnership with Sunoco that allows secure fuel payments without a physical credit card using autonomous fleet payments. The partnership — available at 5,000 Sunoco stations around the U.S. — gives fleet customers more choices when it comes to buying fuel.

August saw the payment solutions firm Edenred team with Visa to launch Edenred Essentials, a commercial card solution for fleet management expenses such as fuel, electric vehicle charges and vehicle costs.

Earlier this month, digital financial platform RoadSync and heavy-duty repair solution Fullbay joined forces to make it easier for repair shops in the trucking industry to accept and manage fuel cards and fleet checks.

The partnership adds a fully embedded fleet payments experience to Fullbay’s heavy-duty repair shop management platform. The two companies say their products can be integrated, with RoadSync’s fleet payment application programming interfaces available to repair shops using Fullbay Payments.
