Knowing when is the right time to refill is a crucial part of the smart fuel buying decisions.
What’s the best location and which chain provides the best value for money is crucial for maximum savings.
Gain insight into how much fuel to buy on this location because maybe down the route there are better offers waiting.
With regional and daily differences in fuel costs, even different truck stops in the same chain vary significantly in pricing along any given route. It’s impossible to realize maximum fuel purchase savings unless you buy at the lowest price chain locations on your route each day. Selecting the wrong fueling locations, even where you have discounts, means your drivers spend more than necessary on fuel each trip.
Pricing between truck stop chains in the same region can also differ greatly. Your lowest purchase prices are balanced with the shortest practical driving route and your vehicle’s MPG is set to plan the fewest fuel stops and keep your savings high.
Shippers ask you to bid your lowest price on a lane before they award freight to you. Why let fuel vendors insist on gallon purchase commitments before they offer you their best price?
