TransCore now offers a free fuel optimization module that builds a route based on each truck's fuel characteristics.

Part of its Fuel & Mileage Tax Reporting Service, the new feature creates a route based on the truck's average miles per gallon and fuel tank capacity. From this information, the system will recommend locations for fuel purchases, give an estimate of costs for fuel and taxes and provide a map and an estimate of taxes by state.

"With our Web-based Fuel & Mileage Tax Reporting, companies don't have to spend hours going through driver trip reports and then enter mileage and fuel data onto spreadsheets or state tax forms," said Steve Baumhardt, vice president of business development at TransCore. "Instead, we enter and store trip data and calculate the tax liabilities in compliance with the International Fuel Tax Agreement and International Registration Plan."
