The need for fleet managers to proactively manage 'fuel' costs will not disappear with the transition to electric vehicles. While recharging batteries is considerably cheaper than filling a fuel tank with diesel, the charge points that drivers select, and the individual driving styles of employees will still significantly impact electricity bills.
The same disciplines that fleet managers have used to control their fuel expenditure still apply to battery-powered vehicles. Data on business miles driven, driver fuel consumption and the charge point price of power will be critically important for cost-conscious businesses.
As a result, charging network cards that give drivers access to recharging networks, but without the additional management information and ease of invoicing, will not be sufficient to manage recharging expenditure.
We can announce that drivers can now recharge electric fleet vehicles with our Shell Fuel Card from FLEETMAXX SOLUTIONS. It gives fleets access to NewMotion's interoperable network. This terminology means with the card's swipe, the transaction gets sent into one invoice for your expenditure management.
The Shell Fuel Card can charge across 16 different networks. As the network grows, fleets will access an even more extensive network with no extra admin required. The Shell and NewMotion networks are conveniently placed across the UK to allow drivers to charge wherever they are.
