August 24, 2017 - Press Release

WEX Inc. announced that it has been awarded a five-year blanket purchase agreement from the the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for vehicle telematics products and services.

Through this agreement, DHS fleet managers from the agency's 13 operational and support components will be able to purchase WEX telematics solutions that will enable them to maximize fleet efficiency and performance, integrate fleet focused data across multiple platforms, and advance their ability to deliver on their daily missions.

“The Department of Homeland Security operates one of the largest fleets in the U.S. today, and it’s an honor to be selected to work with this team,” said Bernie Kavanagh, senior vice president and general manager of North America large fleet and strategic relationships at WEX. “We’re looking forward to arming DHS with WEX technology to provide their fleet managers access to data-driven insights to help them manage the daily operations of their fleet.”

The Department of Homeland Security operates a fleet of approximately 52,000 vehicles, making them one of the largest federal agency fleets in the country. Its fleet operation supports the agency's wide array of missions, which includes preventing terrorism and enhancing security, managing U.S. borders, administering immigration laws, securing cyberspace, and ensuring disaster resilience.
