Slavery and human trafficking continues to be a shameful evil in our global society.
Everybody must be aware of the risk of supporting or encouraging the continuance of these practices in our business and in the wider supply chain. We expect our staff to report any concerns without fear of recrimination or censure and our management team are expected to act upon those concerns accordingly.
FLEETCOR is the parent company of The Fuelcard Company. The group has its head office in Atlanta, Georgia USA and is active throughout the world. The group has an annual turnover in excess of $1.7billion. Our UK business is organised into 4 business units; Allstar Business Solutions, The Fuelcard Company, epyx and Keyfuels. We are the UK’s number one fuel card provider.
Our supply chains are relatively short and essentially relate to the production of plastic cards, the acceptance of our cards for the supply of goods and the maintaining and running of our offices worldwide.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

We use the following key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains:
