FLEET CARDS AND CORPORATE PAYMENTS
FLEETCOR and its subsidiary Comdata has been a pioneer in the fleet card business, dating back to 1969. The original Fuelman card was one of the first fuel cards offered in the U.S., serving local fleets since 1985.
FLEETCOR’s innovative card products help businesses control spending, eliminate reimbursement hassles, and simplify record keeping, while discouraging fraud and empowering employees. We offer a portfolio of cards that meet the needs of organizations of all sizes and business types. For public sector and tax-exempt fleets, our card programs include unique pricing options that provide tremendous savings or rebates, as well as cards featuring specialized controls and tax reporting tools.
Our payroll and employee reimbursement options include not only payroll and virtual cards, but also multi-card Mastercard programs with cash wallet features.

SPECIAL SERVICES FOR PUBLIC SECTOR FLEETS AND TAX-EXEMPT ORGANIZATIONS
For public sector agencies, non-profits, and other tax-exempt organizations, Comdata will provide tax-exempt fuel billing. Customers can access fuel invoices that are exempted from allowed federal motor fuel excise taxes via the billing portal. Exempt billing is a service that saves money and time, while providing important documentation for tax-exempt fleets.
ELECTRIC VEHICLE (EV) FLEET SUPPORT
Governments are leading the way into the quickly expanding EV market, and many governments and municipalities have already begun purchasing EVs both as replacements for retiring vehicles and as vehicles of choice for fleet expansion. Comdata understands that adding electric vehicles to fleets brings a new set of challenges over traditional internal combustion engine fleets and requires corresponding new benefits when it comes to fuel card programs.
In addition to assuring broad acceptance at charging stations and providing special pricing arrangements for electric vehicle fleets, Comdata has developed a solution that delivers universal EV charging payments and connected-vehicle analytics capabilities for fleets across the U.S. A connected vehicle portal application provides tremendous value, allowing fleet managers and other authorized parties to view and monitor all charging events for enrolled vehicles, including residential (Tier 1) charging events. Currently in the works at Comdata is a plan to provide EV-specific reporting needed to support the unique needs of EV fleet managers. This includes data to facilitate employee reimbursement for home charging.
