Ampol has announced an historic new national partnership with The National Road Transport Association (NatRoad) that will deliver more than $15 million in savings for the freight industry.

The partnership will see NatRoad members save on fuel costs across Ampol’s network of more than 380 sites nationwide.

Matt Halliday, Managing Director and CEO, Ampol, said that Ampol is proud to support essential services by alleviating cost pressures and improving economic outcomes for Australian businesses.

“Strong global demand, supply side constraints and the situation in Ukraine are all playing a role in exceptionally high crude oil prices that are driving Australian retail fuel prices. At this time, we are proud to launch this new partnership, which will help businesses in key industries reduce their business costs and keep Australia moving.

“I’m proud to see Ampol and NatRoad joining forces to support Australian road transport, today and tomorrow, and look forward to strengthening our partnership as we move forward.”

Scott Davidson, Chairman, NatRoad, said the deal will be welcome news to a road transport industry that has successfully met a series of challenges during the pandemic.

“It brings together Australia’s leading trucking association and the operator of Australia’s largest transport diesel refuelling network.

“As we all emerge from the disruption of COVID-19, this partnership is about helping road transport operators who deliver an essential service to drive their business dollar further.”

Warren Clark, CEO, NatRoad, said the deal gives NatRoad members access to both Ampol’s network of one-stop shops for every journey and the advantages of being an AmpolCard fuel account holder.

“Through this partnership, not only do members support the work that NatRoad does in advocating for the freight industry, but they benefit their businesses through the support they can get from NatRoad and the smart solutions that come with AmpolCard.” Clark said.

“Our industry is second to none in resilience but many members are doing it tough with profit margins of about 2.5 per cent.

“Discounted fuel makes a huge difference to their bottom line, as does single-touch invoicing and convenient access to refuelling.”

NatRoad members will receive access to Ampol’s award-winning FuelPay app for quicker stops; 0 per cent surcharge when paying invoices with MasterCard; a single, ATO-approved monthly invoice and a range of other transaction reports available online through myAmpol. Simple integration to automatically upload invoices to Xero or MYOB; and the ability to collect Everyday Rewards points on all fuel and eligible in-store purchases, which can be converted to Qantas Points or be used as dollars off shopping at Woolworths.
