BP is to trial its digital in-truck app, InTruck Connect, in the UK with MAN Truck and Bus.
BP InTruck Connect is an app-based solution, that will integrate into MAN’s existing truck infotainment system.
BP InTruck Connect will be piloted as part of MAN’s digital product, MAN SimplePay, an ecosystem of partners for all payment transactions around the daily operations of a truck. BP said it is the first partner to join the ecosystem for fuel payments.
Alexandru Eftimiu, vice president of BP Fleet Europe, said: “We aim to use digital technology to enhance the customer experience and provide the very best service to fleet managers whilst simplifying the refuelling process for truck drivers.
“With our InTruck Connect solution, drivers can refuel and be back on the road in three simple steps.
“Drivers just need to confirm the fuelling site on their MAN truck infotainment system, unlock the pump and refuel. The truck logs the transaction and pays for the fuel itself.
“InTruck Connect makes the process efficient and easy, so that drivers and managers can save time and have more security and transparency over their fuel purchases.”
The app requires an activated MAN telematics box and an approved BP InTruck Connect account and is available for use at BP forecourts.
The app provides information on fuel purchases, mileage and other data to fleet managers, and it also connects fuel cards with truck data.
The pilot with MAN Truck and Bus is set to launch in Q4 2022 in the UK with plans to extend into Europe in 2023.
