Co. Armagh, United Kingdom (09 July 2010) – CSC, a leading UK and European provider of fuel cards, comment on how the recent resurgence of the Sterling currency has resulted in companies flocking to Southern Ireland to take advantage of the cheaper diesel prices.

With the recent strengthening of the Sterling against the Euro used in the remainder of Ireland, CSC has seen a large increase of fleet card customers crossing the border into Southern Ireland to fill up on diesel, as the economic advantages of this development can show significant results for companies.

The sterling is now at its strongest against the Euro since 2008 and will continue to develop and become stronger, according to economic experts. CSC believes that they will need to take measures to ensure that they have enough sites supporting their fuel cards operating in the Southern Ireland area to accommodate this predicted rise in the strength of Sterling, and thus the presumed need for more sites in this area.

“As a result of the growth of the Sterling currency, the amount of organizations operating their fleet in Southern Ireland has risen so that companies can make the most of this revival,” commented Craig Anderson of CSC. “The potential save on resources for companies with a fleet is considerable, and to accommodate this we have 24-hour fuel card facilities at all major border crossings in Ireland so that reaping the benefits can be simple and convenient for our existing, and future clients.”
