IDS has reported that “not a single case” of fraud has been encountered since the launch of its fuel card.
Eighteen months since its launch, IDS (International Diesel Service) has reported that there has not been any cases of payment fraud or skimming.
Q8’s global card business director Vincenzo Maniaci: “Fuel remains a very attractive product for fraudsters. We are extremely proud to report that IDS has not had any cases of card fraud.
"Our fuel cards are just as secure as bank cards and are the most secure solution available on the market. Falsification is impossible, because the card cannot be copied, so criminals cannot override the technology we use.”
In addition to the cards being 100% secure, IDS also offers a smart set of measures for secure transactions at 600 European stations, and full control of the fuel cards.
Customers can manage and configure all of their truck and driver fuel cards online via iAccount, while bigger customers can also clearly group and organise subcontractors.
An authorisation at the station with an online PIN check prevents refuelling transactions that have not been pre-authorised.
A double card payment system is also available, which provides a fuel card per driver and per truck, and only validates a transaction when both cards are used together.
IDS, part of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, supplies diesel for national and international transport and has a network of more than 600 automatic filling stations in Europe.
