Adapting to unprecedented change

Today, the fuel retail industry faces unprecedented change across multiple fronts:

  • Market environment: As the push for electronic vehicles (EVs) gathers momentum and mobility choices expand, traditional fuel revenues will decline.
  • Competition: As fuel retailers widen their offerings, and products such as open loop fleet cards enter the market, new competitors will emerge.
  • Customer expectations: Customers increasingly expect to do business online – even when they are in-store. Mobile and in-car payment for both traditional and new services are becoming essential.
  • Regulation and compliance: Legal frameworks for European Union (EU) governance of payment cards have tightened, bringing fuel cards into scope.

Thriving in a fast-changing world requires agility and flexibility

  • Expand service offerings: Companies that traditionally focused on fuel sales need to widen their horizons and be able to offer new services.
  • Enhance experience and agility: The ability to define distinctive offers by combining experience with the agility to roll out new products and services quickly are keys to staying competitive.
  • Build strategic relationships and ecosystems: As an efficient alternative to building new services and products in-house, choose solutions that make it easy to attract and take on new partners or even business models.
  • Focus on your core business, not platforms: Managing operations and compliance takes time away from your team’s innovation and business building efforts.
