FLEETCOR’s Allstar Business Solutions’ card now accepted on GRIDSERVE Electric Highway, making fleet EV charging seamless across the UK

Share this post

Allstar Business Solutions Limited, the UK’s leading fuel management and EV charging card company, today announces a new partnership with leading sustainable energy business, GRIDSERVE.  The collaboration means that the Allstar One Electric card is now accepted as the first third-party payment method alongside contactless on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway.

The partnership enables the Allstar One Electric card and roaming cards that are part of the Allstar Network, such as Mina Chargepass to have full access to the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway including their two flagship Electric Forecourts® in Braintree and Norwich, as well as their High Power Electric Super Hubs and Medium Power Electric Hubs that cover 85% of the UK’s motorway service areas.

The two companies working together will give more EV charging options through the Allstar One Electric card for fleet customers charging on the road. For fleet managers, drivers using the Allstar One Electric card, over the standard contactless payment method, allows for continued control and visibility during the transition to fleet e-mobility.

Over the past year, GRIDSERVE has embarked on a multi-million pound programme to upgrade over 160 charging locations with new chargers, deliver additional High Power Electric Super Hubs across the motorway network, each featuring a bank of 6 to 12 x 350kW-capable chargers, and opened a new flagship Norwich Electric Forecourt®. The rapid and far-reaching rollout has given huge numbers of drivers the confidence to know that they can depend on GRIDSERVE to provide a net zero carbon charge at motorway service areas as they embark on long distance journeys across the UK.

While the sale of new cars is stalling, the EV market is surging, particularly for light commercial vehicle sales, which rose by 21.4% in 2021. This is a sure indicator that many companies are already starting to plan for – and action – the implementation of electric vehicles in their fleets.

A lack of infrastructure has long been a critical barrier to integrating alternative fuelled vehicles (AFV) into businesses operations. To address this issue, Allstar has driven momentum within the EV market following the launch of Allstar One Electric, its EV on the road charging solution, as well as key strategic partnerships.

Tom Rowlands, Managing Director, Global EV Solutions at Allstar Business Solutions, said: “Allstar is really excited to have added GRIDSERVE Electric Highway to its network, which demonstrates our commitment to adding high quality and importantly high-speed networks for our fleet customers. We are GRIDSERVE’s first partner alongside contactless card acceptance specifically for fleets, which offers us a unique proposition for our customers.”

He added: “Recent vehicle sales figures show that there is a clear and growing appetite from UK fleet operators to incorporate EVs into their businesses and ultimately make the full transition. To help them achieve this it is essential that we partner with leading electric charging operators, such as GRIDSERVE. This will help us to offer greater access to charging points for drivers and reduce any threat of range anxiety for vehicles on the road.”


Toddington Harper, Founder and CEO of GRIDSERVE, commented: “This decade is crucial for climate action and it’s vital that we deliver the solutions that will move the needle on climate change. The widespread transition to electric vehicles, powered by sustainable energy, is a key part of what’s needed. We are committed to building an awesome UK-wide charging network, enabling anyone, anywhere, in any type of EV to take on any journey and have a great customer experience. We look forward to working with Allstar to deliver a fantastic EV charging experience for fleet drivers.”


Paul Holland, Managing Director, UK Fleet at Allstar Business Solutions, commented: We are seeing a true move away from traditionally fuelled vehicles and more and more electric vehicles on the road. It’s critical that Allstar supports businesses making the transition, and this can only be done with the support of best-in-class partners like GRIDSERVE to offer a unique service to our customers.”
