Atlanta, GA (July 11, 2017) – Today Rubicon announced partnerships with Fuelman and TAC Energy to provide substantive fuel discounts for independent haulers and truckers across North America. The Fuelman and TAC Energy discounts are new additions to the rapidly expanding RubiconPro buying program and are available immediately. RubiconPro delivers fuel, equipment, and financial benefits to independent waste haulers and truckers that previously were only available to the industry’s largest regional and national haulers and truck fleets.
“The value-added benefits from exceptional partners like Fuelman and TAC Energy further enhance RubiconPro’s offering to the independent hauling community,” said Kerry Grubb, director, RubiconPro. “RubiconPro is designed to help haulers and truckers operate more efficiently and profitably.”
With the Fuelman partnership, the RubiconPro Fuel program provides haulers and trucks with a wide range of products that provide deep discounts on their transactions at over 50,000 Fuelman network locations.
Under the TAC Energy partnership, hauling and trucking companies that have their own fuel tanks on site can use the RubiconPro Fuel program to strategically purchase their bulk fuel; either in a daily spot market or with the option to lock in the price of their fuel needs for up to a year in advance. Haulers will also receive a free Fuel Audit conducted by TAC Energy to determine how competitively they purchase against a third-party, industry standard index like OPIS, (Oil Price Information Service).
“Independent haulers and truckers are an important part of the fabric of American infrastructure and Fuelman is pleased to work with Rubicon to provide meaningful savings and efficiency through our Fuelman network” said Mike Ross, Senior Vice President, North America Fuel Card, Fleetcor.
“Our partnership with Rubicon provides an important connection to local haulers, providing them with an opportunity to purchase bulk fuel at the most competitive rates in the industry,” said Fred Sloan, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, TAC Energy.
Rubicon announced the RubiconPro buying program at WasteExpo in May, with programs initially providing equipment, financing and now fuel discounts and benefits for independent haulers and trucking companies across North America.

RubiconPro participants receive special discounts on goods and services central to a hauler’s operation such as equipment, fuel, maintenance and tires.
