Interstate Distributor Co. has launched a new fuel purchase card for its contracted carrier program. The card allows independent carriers and owner-operators the chance to receive a 10 cent per gal. discount when purchasing fuel at Flying J and Pilot Travel Centers.

Carriers also have access to purchase fuel at the posted price at all Interstate yards.  There are no transaction fees, the company said.

“Interstate has designed the entire contracted carrier program to help small businesses grow,” said Cathy Canonica, vice president of contracted carrier development. “Our size and customer base allows owner operators and independent carriers access to year round Fortune 500 freight that they might not otherwise have access to haul.  Now with the fuel card we are also helping these business owners control one of their largest operational expenses.”
