Shell launches fuel management app for small fleets

Shell Fleet Solutions UK is launching a new fuel card management app for UK businesses operating up to 10 vehicles.

The Shell Fleet App, available on both Android and iOS platforms, aims to offer small business owners a convenient tool to track driver fuel card spending. Users will also get access to discounts that could help their small business save up to £70 per month on fuel spend at Shell branded service stations, it says.

“Last year presented significant operational challenges for many different industries, particularly for small business owners,” said Sarah Llewelyn, head of Shell Fleet Solutions UK.

“With costs and operational efficiency under the microscope, we want to support small business owners in reducing admin time and boosting operational savings. “Shell Fleet App offers a convenient and smart way to help manage vehicle fuel costs, improve cash flow and free up precious time to focus on core business operations.”

Shell Fleet App helps to streamline admin, by consolidating transactions for up to 10 vehicles into a single, monthly payment, allowing small business owners to easily keep track of their fuel spending. Its ‘drive now, pay later’ fuel card can be used by drivers to pay for fuel at over 3,800 participating UK sites across motorways, main transit routes and in towns and cities.

These include 1,105 Shell service stations –as well as Shell partner service stations with Esso, Texaco, Gulf, Gleaner, Circle K and more recently, Morrisons. The in-app station locator directs the driver to the nearest participating service station and the in-app downloadable digital VAT receipts mean drivers no longer have collect paper receipts after each transaction, it said.
