Rubicon Global has formed partnerships with Fuelman and TAC Energy to provide substantive fuel discounts for independent haulers and truckers across the nation. The discounts, which are available immediately, are part of the RubiconPro buying program, which delivers fuel, equipment and other financial benefits to independent haulers and trucks that previously were only available to the industry’s largest regional and national haulers and truck fleets.
“The value-added benefits from exceptional partners like Fuelman and TAC Energy further enhance RubiconPro’s offering to the independent hauling community,” said Kerry Grubb, director of RubiconPro, in a statement. “RubiconPro is designed to help haulers and truckers operate more efficiently and profitably.”
Under the Fuelman partnership, the RubiconPro Fuel program provides haulers and trucks with a vast variety of products that provide deep discounts on their transactions at more than 50,000 Fuelman network locations.
“Independent haulers and truckers are an important part of the fabric of American infrastructure and Fuelman is pleased to work with Rubicon Global to provide meaningful savings and efficiency through our Fuelman network,” said Mike Ross, senior vice president of North America Fuel Card, Fleetcor, in a statement.
With the TAC Energy partnership, hauling and trucking companies that have their own onsite fuel tanks can use the RubiconPro Fuel program to strategically purchase their bulk fuel; either in a daily spot market or with the option to lock in the price of their fuel needs for up to a year in advance. Haulers will also receive a free Fuel Audit conducted by TAC Energy to determine how competitively they purchase against a third-party, industry standard index like OPIS, (Oil Price Information Service).
"Our partnership with Rubicon Global provides an important connection to local haulers, providing them with an opportunity to purchase bulk fuel at the most competitive rates in the industry in order to maintain their market share,” said Fred Sloan, vice president and chief operating officer ofTAC Energy, in a statement.
