Each day the oil giant has 300 tanker trucks distributing up to 15,000 gallons of gasoline to filling stations across the United States. But a glaring shortage of qualified drivers, both long-haul employees and short-haul contractors, was so acute that it became a critical HR challenge. Too many tankers sat idle because of this driver shortage ? until ExxonMobile went the RPO route.
When a long-haul truck pulls in for a fuel fill-up, it typically costs about $150. More than 15,000 fleet operators turn to Comdata to provide credit cards for truck drivers to use as they ply the nation’s highways. Comdata verifies and pays the bills, and forwards an invoice with a small mark up to its clients. With trucks continually on the road, the Comdata network that handles these transactions must be absolutely reliable, accurate, secure, and always available.
