JCDecaux cuts refuelling costs using Fuel Card Services

Outdoor advertising company JCDecaux has utilised the services of Fuel Card Services to keep its fleet’s refuelling costs to a minimum.

The company has media sites throughout the UK which are serviced by a fleet of 320+ vehicles operating from nine locations across the country – all refuelling using fuel cards from Fuel Card Services.

JCDecaux contacted Fuel Card Services to find better service and value than its previous supplier. Assistant Fleet Manager Fred Joseph, commented: “Any query or request meant sitting in a call centre queue. They were already charging pump prices, then introduced transaction charges on top. 

Just one weekly refuelling per vehicle would cost £30,000 more annually, so we needed a better deal. Fuel Card Services is better in every way, from the personal service to the real cost savings.”

Cost-efficient fuel cards

The JCDecaux fleet of HGVs, vans, cars and cherry-picker vehicles is now refuelled using Shell, Texaco and Diesel Direct fuel cards.

The company also uses fuel cards personalised to individuals, allowing fast and easy discount refuelling of any hired, leased of ‘grey’ vehicle.

The fuel cards offer a fixed weekly price which saves up to 4p per litre on average pump prices, with no transaction charges or hidden extra costs. A single weekly invoice covers all transactions for the entire fleet. Fuel Card Services provides a range of cards to cover major brands specialist networks, supermarkets and motorway services to meet customer needs without compromise.

Fred Joseph added that the company were very impressed with the customer service offered by Fuel Card Services. He continued: “We started with just 10 fuel cards, as a test, then went to 20, then 30. Now, the whole fleet is covered. For a successful and growing organisation, in a dynamic industry, the ability to make changes quickly and easily is important. 

Having just won the world’s largest bus shelter advertising contract, we have no concerns about refuelling the vehicles needed to service the contract.”

Fuel Card Services Group Marketing Manager, Steve Clarke, added: “JCDecaux drivers do not have to hunt around for the best refuelling deal. Wherever they are, discount fuel with no surcharges will be nearby. Plus, always talking to the same person means that JCDecaux can count on help from somebody who knows and understands its refuelling needs.”
