WEX, the commerce platform that simplifies the business of running a business, announced the launch of the WEX Motorpass Driver App in Australia to help small to medium sized businesses tackle rising fuel prices and save money on the operation of their fleet vehicles.
What is the product offering of WEX solution?
The WEX Motorpass Driver App allows fleet drivers and employees in sectors including; construction, retail, manufacturing, and transport to find the best fuel prices closest to them – in real-time and at the touch of a button. The app can be downloaded on iOS and Android.
The launch of WEX Motorpass Driver App comes at a time when rising fuel prices and interest rates are impacting SMBs. Petrol prices have exceeded $2 a litre at times this year, and the termination of the fuel excise in September means that the full tax on fuel has been reapplied.
“We’re launching the WEX Motorpass Driver App at a time when businesses are looking to save precious revenue where possible,” said Matthew Arthur, VP Fleet Asia Pacific at WEX.
“For any small business operating a fleet, be it an online retailer, plumbing business, manufacturer, or the like – fuel can be a major cost. The WEX Motorpass Driver App ensures these businesses, and their drivers, can always find the most cost effective price available.”
“The revenue saved can be used by business owners for multiple purposes, including investment for growth or back into the business,” Matthew Arthur further commented.

Capricorn offers its members – which includes small automotive businesses – a broad range of services to help them better manage their business and save time and money.

We will continue to encourage all Capricorn Fuel Card holders to download it. I know I use it whenever it is time to fill up to get the best value for money,” said Brad Gannon, CEO Automotive at Capricorn.
