Today we have announced that we’re adding HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) to our fuel network. The addition will enable Radius customers to purchase this renewable diesel at several strategically located truck stops across the UK Fuels network and is another step in Radius’ sustainability journey.
Radius customers will be able to refuel their vehicle with HVO as a diesel substitute using their fuel card, at a number of sites which can be found on its e-route site locator, with 50 planned in total by the end of the year.
HVO only uses waste products, not virgin crops, making it a highly sustainable fuel source that can help businesses reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%. It can also help improve the engine lifespan of their business vehicles.
The announcement comes on the back of Radius’ recent partnership with Element 2, the UK’s leading hydrogen infrastructure company. The two companies are working together to develop a network of hydrogen refuelling solutions across Radius’ existing UK Fuels network.
Both additions are part of Radius’ ongoing strategy to enable fleet customers to continue to operate as normal whilst transitioning to carbon-friendly solutions.
During the upcoming months, Radius, working with several partners across the UK, will be announcing new HVO locations in its customer network updates. Radius will also be able to facilitate deliveries of HVO for customers who have their own bulk storage tanks, allowing drivers to refill sustainably at their own depots, too.
Jonathan Haseler, Managing Director, UK and Ireland, Radius, commented: “As a company, part of our strategy is focused on enabling sustainable mobility for our customers. This new HVO network further extends our environmentally friendly product offering as businesses transition to a greener fuel solution. Together with our recent partnership with Element 2 and our carbon offset programme, Radius Future and our hybrid EV charge cards, we are continuing to find innovative ways to help our customers become more sustainable.”
Customers purchasing HVO with one of Radius’ own-brand UK Fuels cards can manage transactions in the online account management portal, Radius Velocity, alongside their standard diesel, unleaded, and other vehicle-related products spend.
Radius Velocity allows fleet managers to manage their business fuel easily and effectively. Free to all customers, the portal can be used to analyse fuel purchases by driver, location, time and volume with the ability to organise card users into groups. This enables frequent and accurate analysis to make informed business decisions to improve fuel efficiency.
