Trulite’s company-owned fleet of 260+ semi-tractor trailers is relied upon daily for the national delivery of its manufactured goods. Previously, all fleet drivers (employees) carried their own fleet fuel cards, which made it difficult for the company to reconcile expenses or take advantage of negotiated discounts.
It became nearly impossible to track the volume of diesel fuel purchasing and to verify that discounts were being received.
As the Director of Transportation, Colleen Beattie, began recognizing that the reported fuel spend didn’t align with the expected discounts, she recognized immediately that money was being left on the table. She took action to not only resolve this problem, but also to make the company’s fleet fuel program more efficient and cost effective.
