), a leading provider of connected vehicle solutions, today announced its cooperation with Shell, a leading provider of global energy solutions, to act as lead solution integrator for the telematics element of Shell’s new fuel management solution for commercial transport fleet operators: Shell FuelSave Partner.
Airbiquity worked with Shell to develop and test key components of Shell FuelSave Partner. The new fuel management solution, which automatically links customers’ Shell fuel cards with technology installed in the vehicle and a central database, can help customers save up to 10% on fuel and better manage their fuel-related CO2 emissions.

Shell FuelSave Partner is currently available in the Netherlands, with further market introductions planned throughout the year.
“This announcement demonstrates Airbiquity’s expertise as a leading provider of connected vehicle solutions – from connected cars and navigation devices, to enabling efficient fleet and transportation solutions,” said Justin Saye, Airbiquity VP of European Fleet Services. “Helping to reduce fuel consumption and improve efficiencies is an important undertaking for all companies and being chosen to support Shell in achieving this is particularly rewarding for the company.”
“Airbiquity brings a wealth of experience in designing and delivering reliable connected vehicle solutions for a variety of customers,” said John Leppers, Global Commercial Road Transport Marketing Manager. “After learning about their experience and expertise, we selected Airbiquity to manage the integration of Shell FuelSave Partner vehicle telemetry."
