So far more than 100 transport partners have purchased over 30 million euros worth of fuel in the program, which is available in 32 countries.
Since 2014, more than 100 AsstrA transport partners have joined the company’s fuel card program. In this program, partners can purchase gas with an AsstrA fuel card at more than 14,000 gas stations in 32 countries across Europe and Asia. The program has attracted new carriers to partner with AsstrA and has increased the company’s transportation capacity accordingly.
Over the five years of the program so far, fuel purchases have increased from an average of 2,500 liters to more than 1,000,000 liters per month now. In total, more than 30 million euros worth of fuel has been purchased through the program.
The fuel program is available to – and intended to support – AsstrA’s established partners. It offers carriers attractive pricing per liter of fuel and a modern way to finance and account for operational costs.
The corporate group issues fuel cards with euro cash limits individually established for each carrier. They may be used in a wide network of gas stations in the EU and the EAEU. Carriers receive online access to an account where they can monitor transactions and track fuel expenditures in real time.
"Every day, the logistics market presents its participants with new challenges that constantly raise the bar for both young and well-established companies. We try to meet the needs of the modern client by offering more value. To build our network of carriers, AsstrA has negotiated favorable conditions for our transport partners to refuel with gas companies participating in this program,” says Yuri Zaritsky, Head of the Supplier Relations Department at AsstrA-Associated Traffic AG.
“We stand for progress. We plan to develop the program and launch an online platform to help train logistics and transport company employees to effectively manage operating costs."
