Keeping a vehicle fleet fuelled, ready to roll out and cost optimised is a complex operation. With large numbers of vehicles travelling through multiple countries and retailers at all times of the day and night, fleet managers need visibility and control of fuel purchases and vehicle related expenditure.

They also need their drivers to be able to travel without delays and to re-fuel wherever and whenever it is necessary, whilst maintaining control over the way fuel is purchased so that costs do not escalate unnecessarily.

To help get the balance right, Shell commissioned CGI to develop the Fleet Gateway, an innovative fuel payments solution. The gateway enables Shell’s customers to manage their fleet drivers effectively when they’re out on the road, allowing them to purchase fuel and other authorised goods quickly and easily; in line with the optimised plans and guidance provided by their fleet managers.
