UK Fuels expands bunker network 

Bill Holmes CEO at UK Fuels which was launched with a single transaction at a truck stop in Birmingham over 25 years ago.  The company now processes over three billion litres of fuel a year, as part of a global network of more than 1,000,000 fuel cards across 21 countries 
UK Fuels has expanded its fuel card bunkernetwork to over 2,250 UK sites. Having reached the 550site mark for HGV fuelling, UK Fuels is now the largest independent network in the UK.  
Part of Radius Payment Solutions, the network expansion is part of UK Fuels’ strategy to help customers minimise inefficient route deviation and to prevent unnecessary fuel expenditure.  
“Our customers are at the heart of our network expansion,” said Bill Holmes, CEO at UK Fuels. 
“We remain committed to growing operations in the UK and developing products and services that work together and help us provide the best offering for our customers.”  
The network has expanded through creating and maintaining relationships with the top independent site groups, grocers and independent dealers to develop a bunker network that offers a variety of quality fuel sites for its fuel card customers.  
When viewed in e-route, the network’s online station locator can reduce route deviation and fuel usage. In the last 18 months alone the network has increased by over 10% as they continue to proactively review locations across the length and breadth of the UK.  
“It’s certainly a positive achievement for us to reach 2,250 sites and the 550-site milestone for HGV specific fuel cards, and we will continue to expand this further to benefit our growing customer base.”
