RETAIL DECISIONS AND THE ROAD HAULAGE ASSOCIATION (RHA) JOIN FORCES TO CREATE OPERATING EFFICIENCIES FOR EUROPEAN ROAD HAULIERS
(AllPayNews.com) - Retail Decisions (ReD), a specialist supplier of fuel cards and fuel management, today announces an expansion in its relationship with the Road Haulage Association (RHA). The partnership offers RHA members improved control and accountability over their largest single expense – fuel. Through a co-branded RHA Fuel Card, road hauliers across the UK can now capitalise on low fuel pricing, flexible interest-free credit terms and an extensive nationwide network.
RHA, the UK’s leading trade association for the road haulage industry, chose to partner with ReD because of its market-leading product, service quality and trusted brand name. Both businesses have a shared ambition to provide essential services for road hauliers operating both in the UK and across mainland Europe.
“ReD’s presence in the fuel and fleet card market makes it an ideal partner for the RHA. ReD’s network card will add greater value to our members and provide them with the strongest fuel card proposition currently offered”, said RHA Chief Executive, Geoff Dunning. “RHA members represent more than 25 percent of the transport market and given that fuel is one of their largest operating expenses, the impact of this deal will be felt across Europe.”
This exclusive alliance has come to fruition following a long-term partnership based on a UK fuel contract secured and successfully implemented last year. This move further confirms ReD’s position as the most innovative European fuel card provider, currently covering over 17 European countries with further network expansions planned. ReD fuel cards consolidate business expenditures and offer a total package including services such as fuel, windscreen, tyre replacement and repair.
“This exclusive partnership makes sense for RHA members and for ReD Fuel cards", said Carl Clump, Retail Decisions CEO. "The RHA has been pursuing the best interests of its members for over 50 years while ReD is the most innovative fuel card operator in the UK. Together ReD and the RHA can deliver control, credit and low-cost fuel in a user-friendly fashion."
RHA Fuel Card benefits include:
* Competitively low fuel pricing throughout the Europe-wide network
* Flexible interest-free credit terms (subject to status and for business purposes only)
* Ability to purchase diesel, gas oils, lubricants and have access to overnight parking
* European VAT recovery for reduced expense management worries associated with buying fuel abroad
* FREE 24/7online account management and e-billing
* Members gain access to discounted toll and tunnel solutions
* Free cards in the first year of your account
