Photo of the Month: Bulk Fuel Australia servicing the agriculture industry
- 07 July 2017
Welcome back for another Photo of the Month announcement. Whether it’s an on-site refuel picture, a quick snap from one of our clients or team, or some striking truck photography, we proudly promote the photo which impresses the Bulk Fuel Australia team the most.
The winner of Photo of the Month is one of our very own. Meet Chris. Some of our clients who’ve contracted Bulk Fuel Australia for an on-site tank refuel might know Chris quite well. He’s one of drivers taking care of many of our agriculture clients to the west of Gladstone. Here he is out the front of our truck and dog unit on his way to a job.
Fuelling the Agriculture Industry
The Agriculture, Fishing and Forestry sector is one of the largest employing sectors in Australia, with 299,800 people working under the Agriculture, Fishing and Forestry (mainly in rural locations) banner as of November 2016. Agriculture alone contributes $10 billion to the Queensland economy every year. As it stands, 90% of farms in Australia are family owned, run by one or two people, and contribute to half of the nation’s food and rural produce.
With many of our family-owned farming operations bringing in an average of $1 million per year, it’s necessary that they cut down on costs where they can, without compromising their product.
One of the best ways they can do this is through the safe and flexible delivery of bulk fuel to their farm. The Agriculture industry has unique requirements around bulk fuel transport, supply and storage due to the seasonal production of their produce. It means bulk fuel solutions need to be responsive and flexible to the varying circumstances to ensure machinery down-time is kept to a minimum.
Luckily, Bulk Fuel Australia is up to the task. No matter the location – remote, rural or suburbia – we offer safe and reliable on-site bulk fuel delivery, which can be combined with fuel storage tanks and dispensing equipment to suit your agricultural needs.
