HOUSTON, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shell, one of the largest fuel card providers in the world, announced today a strategic relationship with Jiffy Lube International, Inc. Starting April 1st, customers who sign up for the Shell Fleet NavigatorSM Card, a highly flexible fuel card for medium and large fleets, will receive 20 percent off services at participating Jiffy Lube® service centers. This relationship demonstrates an additional way the Shell Fleet NavigatorSM Card helps fleet managers and their drivers reduce costs and achieve business goals.

"We know fleet managers are continually looking for ways to save, which is why we introduced the highly customizable and flexible Shell Fleet NavigatorSM Card," said Henry Miller, general manager of the Commercial Fleet Card Program for Shell in North America. "Now, with the card's Jiffy Lube® benefit, fleet managers can not only customize their fuel network and set controls down to the driver level to realize savings, but can also save on important ongoing fleet maintenance services."
