We profile the firm, which is not only a winner in this year’s Business Excellence Awards but also the UK’s longest serving family-run fuel card provider, to find out more. riginally started as an oil distribution company in 1976 with a fleet of tankers delivering fuels and lubricants from Cardiff Docks to customers in South Wales, Cambrian moved into fuel cards in 1993 when its owners spotted an opportunity to sell their own fuel through this innovative method. Today the firm provides a range of cards from leading brands such as Shell, Texaco, Keyfuels and UKfuels. These cards can be used nationwide in over 8000 locations. Cambrian’s relationship with these brands has allowed the company to create a network which is designed for optimum business use both in terms of locations and of the cost. Seeking to remain ahead of emerging technologies in the industry, Cambrian also offers a range of innovative additions, including a telematics solution that offers customers real-time vehicle tracking. Through a bespoke digital platform, fleet managers can ensure their fleet is operating at maximum capacity, monitor driving behaviour, pro-actively communicate with their drivers, and reduce costs.
