WEX Inc., a global provider of industry-leading corporate payment solutions, today announced that it has reached an agreement with Equilon Enterprises LLC dba Shell Oil Products US and Shell Canada Products, one of the largest branded commercial fleet fuel card providers in the world, to issue and operate Shell’s full portfolio of commercial fleet cards in the United States and Canada. Shell and WEX anticipate launching their first commercial fleet product August 1, 2018.

“We are excited to offer better functionality and improved customer service to our Fleet Solutions customers by building on our state-of-the-art fleet controls,” said Rusty Barron, vice president and general manager of Shell Fleet Solutions, North America. “Delivering dedicated, best-in-class customer service is important to us, and this new relationship with WEX highlights our commitment to providing customers with personalized support and innovative features to solve their unique fleet management challenges.”

As the new provider for Shell’s commercial fleet cards, WEX will provide Shell’s commercial fleet customers with the full range of features, functionality and solutions needed to meet the everyday demands of a modern fleet. This relationship builds on the latest enhancements and improvements Shell made earlier this year by upgrading to WEX Spec, WEX’s network specification, which allows fleet managers better control and visibility when managing their fueling transactions.

“We’re excited to add the Shell brand to our commercial fleet card services portfolio and to leverage their strong market presence in North America,” said Melissa Smith, WEX’s president and chief executive officer. “The agreement with Shell underscores our commitment to growth in the North American fleet market and offers fleet customers another robust fleet card program option with one of the most recognized brands in the industry.”

Shell Fleet Solutions’ full portfolio of commercial cards includes the Shell Fleet Navigator® Card, a universal fuel card for larger fleets, the Shell Fleet Plus Card and the Shell Small Business Card.
