We have been operating tankers since 1925, and today run a fleet of 500 modern petroleum, aviation, lubricant and bulk gas vehicles incorporating the latest safety and performance innovations. Our UK-wide fuel tanker network delivers unparalleled flexibility based on our extensive industry experience.
Our service is 'built around you' for the fuels, bitumen and oils markets, with an unrelenting focus on safety and exceptionally high service levels.
Like ours, your business is unique. That means the parts of the fuel supply chain where value can be added will be different to those of your competitors. That also means generic, “off the shelf” solutions won’t work. Instead, you need a carefully tailored solution with flexibility built-in allowing you to choose whether to outsource a part or all of your supply chain functions, including ordering, planning, scheduling and replenishment, to meet your individual needs.
A combination of more oil companies moving upstream and increasing numbers of independent retailers operating forecourts indicates that your business will likely change dramatically. This creates logistical headaches, including regional variations in volumes or service changes, forcing you to search for a solution that can adapt to the rapidly changing requirements of your business.
A myriad of the factors affecting fuel price, including exchange rates, production levels and global events, are all volatile and largely unpredictable. One thing is for sure however: all will conspire to heap mounting cost pressure onto your operations.
The fact is you could be running the safest business in the country with zero incidents, but if you fail to implement a new health and safety rule you won’t be compliant. Legislation evolves continuously and every new regulation brings with it the need to understand, adapt and implement the required changes. You’re constantly asking yourself whether you have the in-house expertise to deal with this or could it be outsourced?
