BP and Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK have successfully tested the first digital in-truck fuel payment system in the UK, running a successful pilot trial with Wren Kitchens.
The ground breaking new app-based system, BP In-Truck Pay, makes fuel purchasing and management faster, more efficient and more secure for both truck drivers and fleet managers, says BP.
The app has been developed for the latest-generation Mercedes-Benz Actros, which can be specified with Multimedia Cockpit, Interactive. This incorporates the Truck App Portal, an open platform that can be used by fleet managers to easily assign apps to their vehicles via their Multi-Touch Display.
Automatically relaying purchases, mileage and other data back to base, In-Truck Pay removes the need for drivers to enter mileage themselves.
