Benefits to You
Control Your Margins
With your personalized TFN Fleet Card you have the ability to control margins at your cardlock site. This is all programmed through the network and allows for the ability to charge different margins to different customers.
Benefits even out of network
Each time your card is utilized at another cardlock site you benefit from that transaction. TFN processes the transactions and passes your markup back to you.
Fleet card holders will be incentivized to stop and fuel at other TFN locations to claim savings. Other TFN customers brought in by other tribes will also stop at your site.
Benefits to your customers
Fleet cards cut administrative time by eliminating the need to sort through receipts and reimburse drivers. Each gallon of fuel is easily tracked by the driver.
Thousands of commercial fueling sites around the country are open 24/7 and easily accessible. Fleet cards allow access to these sites.
With an authorized driver identification number required to make a purchase, fleet cards help reduce the risk with lost or stolen cards. Both driver IDs and cards can be cancelled immediately, providing additional protection.
Because fleet cards can only be used for fuel (and other authorized products), fleet managers do not have to worry about unauthorized purchases.
Network and Reimbursements
The TFN Fleet Card Program handles transactions differently based on site.
TFN customers at your site

The Cardlock Model
Not all fuel stations are created equal, especially when it comes to commercial fleet fueling. Fleet drivers want to be able to pull into a station, fuel up, and be on their way. With retail stations, that isn’t always the case. Often commercial trucks are left waiting in line behind small personal vehicles to get their fuel or navigating around a small lot to get to the pump. With cardlock stations, large trucks can pull right into a large lot and skip straight to the pump.
In addition, most commercial fleets prefer to use a fleet card program that provides various benefits. Fleet cards are typically only accepted at cardlocks and special fueling stations.
Benefits of a Cardlock Station
Wider access points for commercial fueling with 1,000s of locations
Get trucks out and on the road quicker and safer
Product restrictions on fleet cards and better security
