LogPay and the star petrol stations expand their card acceptance network
Elmshorn, 11 October 2017 – The star petrol stations are expanding their range of card acceptance from third-party providers, meaning LogPay Card's acceptance network is simultaneously growing. LogPay customers will now have access to ORLEN Deutschland GmbH's more than 570 petrol stations, known in Germany under the star brand. The two companies presented their collaboration at a joint meeting at the petrol station of the future on Prenzlauer Promenade in Berlin.
As of July 2017, LogPay Transport Services GmbH has been majority owned by Volkswagen Financial Services AG and currently offers a fuel card accepted throughout Europe as well as road toll services in 18 countries. The collaboration with ORLEN Deutschland at the star petrol stations is another important milestone on the way to Volkswagen Financial Services becoming one of Europe's largest fuel suppliers and offering customers of the brands of the Volkswagen Group a comprehensive range of fuelling services.
Both partners benefit equally from this new cooperation and expanded offer. The star petrol stations are continually expanding their card acceptance. Michal Brylinski, Chairman of the Board of ORLEN Deutschland GmbH, is enthusiastic about this new partnership: "LogPay card acceptance signals the beginning of our new strategic partnership. We are also discussing innovation-related issues which our two companies can bring together in the future. In addition, star brand products such as Ad Blue are a perfect addition to fuelling services for LogPay cardholders."
