No matter what business you are in – whether it’s construction, delivery, landscaping, refrigeration, or auto dealership companies, keeping your fleet on the road and your equipment running is a top priority. While a few companies still depend on retail fuel, there are some big advantages of bulk fueling that are too important to your bottom line to put to the side truly. Read on to learn more!
Americans spent a large amount of time gassing up each of their vehicles. Here are some statistics:
- Driving to gas stations (15 minutes per trip on average)
- Purchasing gas (10 minutes per fill-up on average)
Now take around 25 minutes per trip and multiply it times your average workforce. Even if you only had a crew of around five construction workers and they only get gas one time a week, you are wasting money. This is especially true if they carpool and drive from one spot to another. You are paying everyone in that truck to purchase gas instead of paying them for profit-producing work like:
- Pouring concrete
- Sheet rocking a new property
- Painting the exterior of your building
- Delivering food
- Working on landscaping jobs
- Running the crew at a manual job site
Gaining Focus and Efficiency
Have you ever fleet that running crews is similar to herding carts? If so, you’re not alone. A large key to efficiency is focusing, and that includes getting everyone to work on time and having a plan laid out for daily production. This alone could increase your production tenfold.
Avoid Inefficiency and Overtime
Two of the crew are late since they had to get gas and diesel fuel. This can snowball into
- Your customer is calling since their delivery or scheduled service is late
- The rest of the day’s schedule is entirely off
- You end up paying overtime to ensure all of your customers are serviced
Reliable Bulk Fuel Delivery Services
Setting up a delivery service schedule that works best for your business will increase your productivity. Instead of dealing with gas lines and over time, you will be concentrating on increasing profits. And, by negotiating a bulk contract, you could protect yourself against rising fuel costs.
