HOUSTON and SAN DIEGO - U.S. Bank Voyager Fleet Systems Inc., a provider of universal fleet fueling and maintenance cards, is expanding its channel partner program with the addition of San Diego-based Plavan Fleet.

By becoming a Voyager Channel Partner and representing a leading fuel card program, Plavan Fleet can issue co-branded fleet cards for its customers and tap into the powerful Voyager acceptance network of more than 230,000 fuel and maintenance locations throughout the country. The company can also generate additional income based on fuel volume sold, deepen the relationships with its existing clients, build a stronger portfolio of fuel-related service offerings, and target new business opportunities.

Plavan Fleet joins a growing list of petroleum distributors that are Voyager Channel Partners.
