By Bryan Sims | July 06, 2011

Independent fuel distributor Pacific Pride Services LLC, a subsidiary of Wright Express Corp., and Quality Petroleum of Alabama jointly opened the first Commercial Fuel Center in Tarrant, Ala., where various blends of biodiesel (from B5 to B20), in addition to ethanol, will be offered for commercial fleet fueling.

“We are excited to bring a clean new commercial fueling center to Tarrant,” said David Melton, vice president of Quality Petroleum of Alabama. “The biodiesel offered at the center will give fleets an even greater variety of environmentally-friendly fueling options. Tarrant is a hub of commercial trucking fleet activity and we look forward to being a part of the community for many years to come.”

The new location marks the eighth Pacific Pride Commercial Fuel Center in Alabama. Networked with 1,000 other Pacific Pride commercial fuel centers across the U.S. and Canada, the site will accept most major fuel cards, including Pacific Pride and Wright Express commercial fuel cards, Comdata, Voyager, TCH, Fleet One, T-Check, ComCheck and EFS.

According to Gregory Iverson, president of Pacific Pride Services, the new fueling center will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will also feature transaction monitoring equipment to provide transaction security for its private and public fleet customers. “Pacific Pride is proud to partner with innovative petroleum marketers to bring valuable fuel management and alternative energy solutions to businesses with commercial vehicles,” Iverson said.

In addition to its eight fueling stations in Alabama, Quality Petroleum also boasts five fueling centers at various locations in Florida.
