Shell announces supermarket partnership for fuel card
26 November 2019
Shell has announced a new fuel card acceptance partnership with UK supermarket, Morrisons.
Shell Multi-Network Fuel Cards will now be accepted at Morrisons filling stations across the UK.
The announcement signals Shell's first move into the UK supermarket space, signalling the provider's aspiration to extend its offering to existing and new fleet customers.
The partnership means that fleets can now use Shell Multi-Network Fuel Cards at more than 3,800 filling stations nationwide. This marks a 10% overall network growth.
The partnership follows a series of recent investments into the Shell Card offering, including a 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 said: "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."
