As you are likely already aware all FirstFleet drivers are getting new fuel cards. If you have not already been given you new card please see your Fleet Manager as soon as possible to help us complete the transition quickly. 

With the new fuel cards we wanted to take a moment and remind you of tools in the FirstFleet Mobile that will help you identify which fueling facilities are in our network. By fueling in our network you help us take advantage of the best fuel pricing and maximize your time because your purchasing limits are less restrictive. If you have not already installed the FirstFleet Mobile app why not give it a try today.

Today we celebrate the blessing of freedom. As Americans we enjoy a privilege that few in the history of the world have ever known. The founding fathers of our nation penned these words in 1776:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The 2017 Form 1095-C tax forms are now available for you to pull immediately by following the same steps used to retrieve your W-2 documents.  If you have not pulled your form by February 23rd, FirstFleet will mail the form to you.

The Form 1095-C contains important information about the healthcare coverage offered or provided to you by your employer. Information from the form may be referenced when filing your tax return and/or to help determine your eligibility for a premium tax credit. Think of the form as your “proof of insurance” for the IRS.
