As part of the agreement, more than 5,000 Kangaroo Express stores joined the Comdata Fuel Consortium (CFC), a nationwide network of 30,000 retail fuel locations offering fuel discounts to corporate credit card holders.
"The continued growth of the fuel consortium is another example of Comdata's commitment to the fleet industry as its trusted, independent partner," said Randy Morgan, Comdata's executive vice president. "Our fleet customers are able to save money on fuel costs, one of the largest and most variable expenses in the business. Additionally, the CFC allows merchants like The Pantry to drive more business to their locations, with no additional costs other than the discount extended to customers."
Brentwood, Tenn.-based Comdata created the CFC in 2008 based upon feedback received from its client advisory board. The Comdata MasterCard is issued by Regions Bank, pursuant to a license by MasterCard International Inc.
Comdata is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ceridian Corp.
Cary, N.C.-based The Pantry Inc. operated 1,559 convenience stores in 13 states as of Aug. 6.
