MOL, Total Make Refueling Europe Easier
Japanese logistics giant Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and French multinational integrated oil and gas company Total S.A. signed an agreement which will make travelling across Europe easier for their corporate customers.
The agreement provides for acceptance of MOL Group Cards by Total in its network of stations in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Germany. At the same time, the Total fuel cards will be accepted in the MOL’s and Slovnaft’s network of stations in Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia.
As a first step, starting from February 2019, Total fuel cards are accepted in MOL’s network in Hungary and Romania. MOL Group Cards’ owners are able to benefit in return from the acceptance of their cards in Total network in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Germany. The roll-out of Total card acceptance to MOL Slovenia and Slovnaft’s network in Slovakia will be finalized over the next months.
As a result of this agreement, MOL Group Cards will be accepted in nearly 7,000 stations in Europe. At the same time, the Total card will be accepted in more than 17,000 points of sales.
“Opening the possibility to use our fuel cards in Western Europe is an important milestone, which will not only help us grow our business, but will also contribute to one of the key objectives of MOL Group 2030 strategy: to become the first choice of our customers.” - commented Zsolt Pethő, Group Downstream Commerce & Optimization Senior Vice President at MOL Group.
“This agreement strengthens our position in Eastern Europe and completes perfectly our offer. It represents yet another step towards consolidating our strong position on the fuel cards in Europe. Finally, it contributes to one of the Total’s key objectives: to support our customers in their energy choices and to be the partner of their mobility.” - declares Benoît Luc, Total Marketing & Services, Senior Vice President for Europe.
