New Technologies and Fuel Payments - a new series of Insight Features from CRT (Europe)

In some of our recent work, we've outlined three prevailing drivers of change in commercial fuel card markets in Europe: internationalization, outsourcing, and digitalisation. Over the next six weeks, and as we approach the launch of our new (and, we think, definitive) strategic study of Europe's fuel payments landscape (more below) - we'll be publishing a series of six Insight Features looking at how technology is set to alter the power structures in today's European fuel cards marketplace, re-engineer value chains, and deliver greater choice to corporate fuel and fleet customers.
Each Tuesday from 26th September, take a moment to check in here to read our views on different aspects of technological innovation, as well as our assessment of the likely commercial impacts and implications.

There is no prioritization in our scheduling, but the line-up of our unique Insight Features is as follows:
26 Sept: The refuelling revolution: how technology could crown new fuel payments kings in Europe
03 Oct: To cloud or not to cloud: how SaaS is asking new questions in platform outsourcing
10 Oct: Fuel cards ..... really? How long does plastic have left?
17 Oct: Online shmonline: what's next in fraud prevention?
24 Oct: Telematics: why everyone's so not getting excited
31 Oct: Can't they - or won't they? Why networks don't like flexible control

Yep - we'll be being suitably provocative, but seeking to get the questions out there which need to be answered and which, we think, will shape the future in our sector.

The Insight Features will also be published on our new company linked in page at and on our website at Please take a second to visit our pages and connect with us - you'll also be able to check out our previous articles there.
