VANCOUVER, B.C. — Darren Liebrecht, president of the B.C.-based National Association of Professional Drivers (NAPD), says his members can now cash in on volume discounts from two industry suppliers.
Both Shell Canada and Goodyear’s Fountain Tire have entered into agreements with the association to dramatically improve the buying power of individual members.
Shell will discount diesel by about nine cents and gas by 1.5 cents under the terms of the agreement. At the same time, Fountain Tire locations from Thunder Bay, Ont. to Canada’s left coast will extend similar incentives to the association’s members.
“The great thing about these relationships is that they apply not only to commercial purchases, but to personal buying, as well,” explains Liebrecht. “That means saving money when filling up or putting new tires on the family car — not just the truck.”
Liebrecht insists every penny saved on the purchase of fuel translates into about $100 in an O/O’s pocket at the end of the month.
“We’re working on similar arrangements for insurance and fuel in the U.S.,” he adds. For more information, contact the group at 250-554-2067.
