Donlen and Comdata Provide Emergency Fuel Program
Donlen announced an emergency fuel program with Comdata designed to assist customers who provide life supportive services to people and communities. “Donlen has many customers that provide vital emergency and life-saving services and supplies,” said Kathy Quinn, manager of fleet fuel programs at Donlen. “Having a fuel program partner who can provide critical fuel deliveries can mean the difference between an active fleet and a fleet that is stalled until conditions normalize.” There are two options available with this program. Mobile on-site fueling delivers fuel directly to vehicles in a designated location from a mobile tank truck, and bulk fuel delivery, where a mobile vendor delivers fuel to a mobile or fixed tank.
