KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pilot Co. has launched a new fleet card, Axle Fuel Card. The newly branded card features quick approvals, enhanced payment terms, money-back rewards and loyalty benefits for drivers.

“In the current environment, trucking companies and their drivers are facing unprecedented challenges as they work incredibly hard to supply our country,” said Jimmy Haslam, CEO of Pilot. “The majority of goods that we rely on every day are transported by truck, and we are committed to doing everything we can to keep them moving. Through the new Axle Fuel Card, we’re able to extend much-needed credit to the industry with added rewards for fleets and professional drivers. Our goal is to provide fleets of all sizes with a reliable credit solution that fuels their business and enables them to focus on the road ahead.”

The Axle Fuel Card is accepted at more than 950 locations in the U.S. and Canada, including Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers, the One9 Fuel Network and at Pilot Flying J Truck Care Service Centers.

Benefits of the Axle Fuel Card include no transaction, account management, annual or other hidden fees; an enhanced online account portal with personal credit representative and sales representative; enhanced payment terms; and money-back rewards to go toward fuel purchases. Driver perks include 1 bonus loyalty point per gallon when using the Axle Fuel Card at Pilot and Flying J locations, and 2 bonus loyalty points per gallon when using Axle Fuel Card at One9 Fuel Network locations. It also offers $30 off any tire or service, 10% off Service Center hourly rate and no callout fee for roadside service.

Once the card is activated, professional drivers can add the Axle Fuel Card to their digital wallet in the Pilot Flying J app and select it when mobile fueling at any participating Pilot, Flying J or One9 location to automatically earn loyalty points and save time at the pump. Existing fleet card customers can still use the yellow fleet card and will receive access to the new rewards, including truck care discounts, money-back offerings and loyalty perks.

Customers will receive one invoice for all Pilot Flying J and One9 Fuel Network transactions and will have access to an enhanced online customer portal. Through the new portal, customers can monitor fueling transactions, make payments, manage payment cards, lock fuel cards, set transaction limits, restrict products or locations and more.
