Rubicon Global, Atlanta, has announced partnerships with Fuelman and TAC Energy to provide fuel discounts for independent haulers and truckers across North America through its RubiconPro buying program. 

The Fuelman and TAC Energy discounts are new additions to the expanding RubiconPro buying program and are available immediately, says Rubicon. RubiconPro delivers fuel, equipment and financial discounts to independent waste and recycling haulers and truckers that Rubicon says previously were only available to the industry’s largest haul and truck fleets.

“The value-added benefits from exceptional partners like Fuelman and TAC Energy further enhance RubiconPro’s offering to the independent hauling community,” says Kerry Grubb, director, RubiconPro. “RubiconPro is designed to help haulers and truckers operate more efficiently and profitably.”

With the Fuelman partnership, the RubiconPro Fuel program provides a wide range of products that offer discounts on their transactions at more than 50,000 Fuelman network locations.  

Under the TAC Energy partnership, hauling and trucking companies that have their own fuel tanks on-site can use the RubiconPro Fuel program to purchase their bulk fuel; either in a daily spot market or with the option to lock in the price of their fuel needs for up to a year in advance. Haulers also will receive a free fuel audit conducted by TAC Energy to determine how competitively they purchase against a third-party, industry standard index like Oil Price Information Service (OPIS).

“Independent haulers and truckers are an important part of the fabric of American infrastructure and Fuelman is pleased to work with Rubicon Global to provide meaningful savings and efficiency through our Fuelman network,” says Mike Ross, senior vice presidet, North America Fuel Card, Fleetcor.

"Our partnership with Rubicon Global provides an important connection to local haulers, providing them with an opportunity to purchase bulk fuel at the most competitive rates in the industry in order to maintain their market share,” adds Fred Sloan, vice president and chief operating officer, TAC Energy.

Rubicon announced the RubiconPro buying program at WasteExpo in May with tire discounts through The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Akron, Ohio,

Based in Atlanta, Rubicon is a cloud-based, full-service waste and recycling company that has offices in Lexington, Kentucky; New York City and San Francisco.
