RAC work with Keyfuels to improve efficiency

Leading fuel card and fuel management solutions provider Keyfuels is working in partnership with the RAC to help it manage it’s fleet more efficiently.

The RAC is one of the leading providers of breakdown and motoring services across the UK, serving more than seven million customers nationwide.

With a large mixed fleet of more than 1,600 vans and 45 10-tonne recovery trucks, it’s imperative to the profitability of the RAC that the fleet operates at maximum efficiency.

Gary Wrightson-Heyworth, Operation Service Manager at RAC comments: “Fuel represents one of our biggest expenditures. Keyfuels’ cards and services give us the ability to accurately control and monitor the cost of fuel and our fleets expenditure, helping us to plan our fuel needs and purchase at the right time to save money.

“By utilising the Keyfuels network we are able to accurately distribute bunkered fuel nationwide and the extensive coverage provided by Keyfuels ensures that our drivers are never far from a participating site.”

When it comes to keeping fleets as cost effective as possible, it’s not just about the price of fuel. The ability to accurately measure and monitor fuel usage is an important factor. Keyfuels offer the complete solution to fuel management, from assessing client needs ensuring they are on the right fuel plan to a variety of management tools such as E-Fuels, which can be used to monitor fuel usage in real time. All of the tools can be quickly and easily accessed from Keyfuels’ website.

“The online functions and fuel solution tools are great as they allow us to effectively monitor the needs of our fleet. Through the reporting tools we can identify the amount of fuel required at each site and how much we are using, allowing me to future forecast what our fuel needs will be up to a year in advance,” continued Wrightson-Heyworth.

“By accessing and using the reporting data in real time, I am not only aware that our fleet requires 24,000 litres of fuel per day but I am also given drilled down data that allows me to see patterns in our fuel useage. This allows me control over not just the costs and compliance for the RAC but also its working capital.”

Dave Matthews, Account Manager for Keyfuels, commented: “As the RAC’s business has grown, so too has its needs. Thanks to the flexibility of Keyfuels’ solutions, we were able to provide additional services to meet with the requirements of the RAC delivering a comprehensive and robust fuel management package for all its vehicles.”

Keyfuels manages billions of litres of fuel each year for some of Europe’s largest fleets. With the largest wholesale priced network in the UK, it gives fleets of all sizes excellent value and extensive access for HGV, LCV and car fleets.
