At bp, we are significantly scaling up our low-carbon energy business and transforming our mobility and convenience offers. As you think about the transition of your fleet, having the confidence of on the road fuelling solutions will be key, and bp plans to understand and support your needs in an increasingly complex future.
Managing a fleet is not only one of your biggest business costs, but also the area of your business with the biggest carbon footprint. As we move towards a net-zero future, how can you minimise the impact of your vehicles and factor sustainability into your fleet management? Well, here’s a few tips to help.
With a colossal operation such as yours and a large fleet of vehicles on the road, fuel providers are likely trying hard to get you signed up to their fuel cards. But, whilst fuel cards and similar agreements may look appealing, you are likely missing out on a wealth of additional benefits that come from an experienced fleet partner – fleet efficiency, simplified operations, and help with decarbonisation.
Build a sustainable fleet for the future
The future of fleets is being redefined. It isn’t going to be about moving from one fuel directly to a more environmentally friendly alternative, because fleets have a range of needs that must all be met – such as long-distance haulage and tight delivery times versus last-mile deliveries. The future of fleets is almost certainly going to require a mix of fuels. At bp, we’ve already made a commitment to invest up to £18 billion in the UK energy system by 2030. What’s more, we aim to have an operational UK network of low carbon mobility solutions, which will incorporate Biogas, HVO and EV charging for trucks & LCV.
Make your fleet appealing to new drivers
Our BPme app is the first mobile fuel purchasing app in the UK that connects to a fuel card. Fast, simple and intuitive, BPme saves your drivers' time when paying for fuel so they can get back on the road quicker. Not only does the app maximise your drivers’ efficiency and minimise the time they spend in fuelling stations, but they can also accrue BPme Rewards points and redeem these for personal use on shop purchases at bp service stations including Wild Bean Café, M&S Food and car wash. Plus, we offer a range of on-road services such as repair and towing services, subsidies on carwashes, cashless purchases of toll, help with taxes, parking and much more.

With bp, you have direct access via your personal account, and you can easily order, replace, or block fuel cards online.
