U.S. Bank is offering fleet managers two different fuel card options to suit truck fleet needs.
Both the Over the Road Card and Over the Road Plus Card provide users with nationwide acceptance, robust misuse prevention, enhanced data capture and comprehensive reporting for class 7-8 vehicles. The Over the Road Plus Card adds additional flexibility to manage additional expenditures on a single card via the MasterCard network, U.S. Bank said.
“By offering a choice of Over the Road card solutions, we are giving fleet managers flexibility to find the right fit for their unique needs,” said Lynn Heitman, senior product and marketing officer for U.S. Bank Corporate Payment Systems. “Our Over the Road network delivers reliable performance and unique features backed by the financial stability and payment expertise of one of America’s strongest banks.”
The U.S. Bank Over the Road Card allows secure fuel and additive purchases at thousands of truck stops and retailers. As a third party card processing network, U.S. Bank captures the pertinent purchase data, including preferred pricing or discounts that have been negotiated, it said. Standard pump prompts gather odometer readings and vehicle identification numbers, and fleet managers can select up to five additional prompts to meet their validation needs.
The Over the Road Plus Card offers all of the features found on the U.S. Bank Over the Road Card plus additional benefits including convenience checks to use where cards are not accepted and the ability to disburse cash advances, pre-approved per diems and funding for emergency repairs.
The card allows fleet managers to set limits on fuel type, gallons per fill up and other parameters. A distinctive new addition further allows funding of single purchases for specific dollar amounts to be paid within a precise timeframe. This provides an additional layer of security and cost control while saving time for drivers and managers alike, U.S. Bank said.
