Announcing a partnership to drive the business of wholesale Members

Fuel card providers FLEETMAXX SOLUTIONS announces a strategic partnership with progressive buying group Confex to help support their wholesale Members who trade across retail, vending, van sales, licensed, cash & carry and export.   

The impact of the Covid-19 shutdown has been devastating, explains Managing Director, Tom Gittins. “Many of our Members trade with hospitality and retailers and deliver grocery, soft drinks, snacks and confectionery. They typically supply 65% hospitality and 35% retail across the nation.” 

Confex is a family-run buying group with a successful 48-year history. Its trading experts negotiate terms, rebates, pricing, and promotions with more than 200 suppliers spanning all product categories. Consequently, its independent and local Members get all the support and clout of a much bigger operation, which allows them to devote their focus on customer service. 

Mr Gittins adds: “The coronavirus situation has hit our Members hard. That’s why this partnership with FLEETMAXX SOLUTIONS is going to help them with their fuel costs so they can continue doing what they do best.”

When a Confex member pick any of our comprehensive range of commercial rate fuel cards, there are no transaction charges, network fees or other surcharges. With other suppliers, you can expect £2 or more to be added to the bill with each refuel.”
