Logistics provider Transplace Inc., based in Plano, TX, has launched a fuel program to provide significant discounts nationwide on diesel fuel to its subscribing member carriers. Discounts are available through Williams TravelCente and numerous other independent truckstops associated with the Truckstops Direct Inc. network. Participating carriers can use current fuel cards without minimum purchase requirements, said Transplace.

Transplace, which uses a network of 5,000 carriers to transport freight for its logistics customers, said that fuel represents one of the largest expenses for its carriers. The Fleet/Procurement Services division of Transplace helps subscribing members reduce total procurement expenditures through Transplace's Marketplace, which is designed to offer discounts on more than 100,000 items such as tires, truck and trailer parts, fuel and lubricants, tools, shop supplies and office products.

Subscribing member carriers can now purchase fuel at over 90 locations coast-to-coast with no minimum purchase obligation, said Transplace. As more fuel is purchased and carrier participation increases, the discounts will increase, it added.

Transplace currently manages more than 1.2 million truckload and intermodal movements and 5.7 million less-than-truckload shipments per year. The company was formed in July 2000 through merger of the six logistics business units of the nation's largest publicly held truckload carriers: Covenant Transport, J.B. Hunt Transport Services, M.S. Carriers (since merged with Swift Transportation Co.), Swift Transportation Co., U.S. Xpress Enterprises, and Werner Enterprises.
