Top Track 100

Large and small fleet operators can manage their fuel costs by using this company’s “fuel cards”, which offer weekly fixed prices for filling up at petrol stations run by companies such as Shell, Texaco, BP and Jet. Crewe-based UK Fuels issues 750,000 of its cards each year and they are used to buy more than 2bn litres of fuel across Europe. Investment in its web-based card-management systems has helped to drive the company’s growth and, under managing director Bill Holmes, 49, sales were £761m in 2013.
