Market Definition

Fleet cards are the type of payment card that allows businesses to manage expenses associated with the vehicles they own and operate. They, also known as fuel cards, act just like charge cards and are provided by major oil and/or specialized credit companies. Businesses provide their personnel with fleet cards for fuel, vehicle repairs, and maintenance. Fleet cards have been used for a long time, and are issued by companies to employees for corporate vehicles. The majority of companies that use fleet cards work in the transport industry. Fleet cards are commonly used by trucking companies as well as those that provide delivery and ridesharing services. Fleet cards tend to be issued by a single company. This means cardholders can only use them at specific locations owned, operated, and franchised by the issuer. Businesses give these cards to their drivers and other employees who can use them instead of personal cards. This allows the card issuer to bill the company directly rather than the employee. This would save the employee time in filing expense reports to reimburse the cost at a later date.
