ESPOO, Finland - Neste Oil, Finland's largest oil retailer, today announced that it has launched the FuelOmat Gold automated vehicle identification solution at its selected Truck stations throughout Finland.
The solution is provided by Orpak Systems, the global leader in automated fueling solutions based on RFID vehicle identification. This new technology is being offered to Neste Oil's commercial fleet customers under the Truck+ name. Truck+ is designed to give customers better control over their fleets' refueling, reduce their fuel costs, and enable them to benefit from more convenient, secure, and faster refueling. FuelOmat only allows fuel to be dispensed when the nozzle is inside an authorized vehicle's fuel tank inlet, reducing the risk of misuse.
"Our new Truck+ service is part of our commitment to provide innovative value-added services for our customers and strengthen our long-term partnership with them," says Sakari Toivola, Neste Oil's Executive Vice President, Oil Retail.
"Thanks to FuelOmat technology, customers will no longer need to use fuel cards at our
Truck+ stations. Drivers simply insert the nozzle into their vehicle's
Truck+ fuel or Adblue tanks and the system automatically authorizes the vehicle. The feedback we received so far has been very positive and we believe it will be a great plus for our customers."
"We are very happy to be working with Neste Oil, who will now be joining other leading oil retailers worldwide operating FuelOmat on their networks," says Shraga Katz, Orpak System's Vice President Sales. "We are excited about the clear benefits commercial fleets in Finland can now enjoy."
