Fuel card provider Shell has announced a new acceptance partnership with retailer Morrisons, meaning that Shell Multi-Network Fuel Cards will now be accepted at the supermarket’s filling stations across the UK.
Shell says the announcement, which represents its first move into the UK supermarket space, heralds a significant improvement in network accessibility for its customers.
As a result of the partnership, fleets can now use Shell Multi-Network Fuel Cards at over 3,800 filling stations nationwide, which represents an overall network growth of 10 per cent.
The partnership follows a series of recent investments into the Shell Card offering, including the Shell Go+ rewards programme, the Jamie Oliver Deli by Shell range and the new Carbon Offsetting Service.
Sarah Llewelyn, head of fleet solutions UK at Shell, said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Morrisons to launch this network expansion.
“For our fuel card customers, having access to a network that is conveniently accessible is pivotal to the performance and efficiency of their fleet.
“Not only does it mean diversions to find a refuelling station should be reduced, but also that drivers can take well-earned rest stops at practical places to recharge for the journey ahead.
“This partnership reinforces our commitment to improving network acceptance for customers of all fleet types and is a reflection of the continued advancements we are making to our fuel card solution.”
Ashley Myers, head of fuel at Morrisons, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Shell to offer our fleet customers access to Shell’s Fuel Card offering. With our 335 sites across the UK, our new partnership will allow Morrisons’ Shell customers to refuel more conveniently, wherever they are in the country.”
