CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 1, 2014) - Today, Shell Canada launched the new Shell Fleet Navigator(TM/MC) Card, a highly flexible fuel credit card for medium-to-large sized fleets. Bringing 50 years of fuel card experience and its expertise as the largest branded fuel retailer in the world, Shell has created a flexible and effective fuel card option for fleet managers in Canada. The Shell Fleet Navigator(SM) Card allows fleet managers to customize their fuel network and set enhanced controls by the individual card or driver, providing them with greater control and insight into their fuel costs and the ability to identify additional savings.
"Shell's expertise in the fleet card space, combined with the flexibility of the Shell Fleet Navigator(SM) Card, allows us to help fleet managers create the best fleet card program for their businesses," said Henry Miller, General Manager of the Commercial Fleet Card Program for Shell in North America. "Working with a dedicated Shell representative, fleet managers are able to customize their fuel network to best fit their company needs and set controls on driver behavior to avoid fraud and increase efficiency."
The key benefits of the Shell Fleet Navigator(SM) Card include:
