Women In Trucking has partnered with discount fuel card company TransConnect Services, offering savings for member companies.
The exact details of the partnership were not disclosed, however, a representative for TCS told HDT that the discount would be off of the cash price and an owner-operator or carrier could save $300-$500 each month per truck on diesel fuel.
TCS serves the over-the-road trucking industry, offering smaller trucking companies discounts on diesel fuel that are typically only available to large fleets.
Carriers and owner-operators can receive discounts on diesel fuel at more than 1,800 participating TCS discount locations including Pilot Flying J, AMBEST, Speedway, TA and Petro, Sapp Bros, Roady's, Petroleum Wholesale, and other truck stop locations nationwide.
“We are excited about our partnership with Women In Trucking and fully support their mission,” said Chris Courts, president and managing director of TCS. “We believe that each client, no matter their gender or the size of their fleet, should expect exceptional customer service, and get the best savings possible on fuel.”
TCS said it offers competitive transaction fee structures with no hidden or monthly fees, a free website, and mobile app tools designed to help clients manage their day-to-day needs. It also provides discounted fuel price information along any route.
“Partnering with TCS supports our mission to address obstacles for women employed in the trucking industry,” said Ellen Voie, president and CEO of Women In Trucking. “By offering a fuel card that provides discounts on fuel for owner operators and small carriers, we can help our members save money and increase their profits."
