3 benefits of on-site fuel storage
- 28 April 2016
Many companies with a fleet of vehicles still use off-site refuelling facilities. But this can result in higher costs and wasted time. If your company is still off-site refuelling, here are three reasons you need to consider on-site fuel storage.
1. It saves money
Having on-site fuel storage can save you money - especially when it's teamed with an effective fuel management system. When you buy fuel in bulk, you can enjoy lower prices. You can also establish an excellent relationship with your supplier, which will enable you to negotiate in future. If you keep track of how much fuel you're using and how much is stored in your tanks, you'll also be able to predict future expenses more easily, giving you a better handle on your finances.
2. It is efficient
As well as saving you money, on-site fuel storage can save you time and energy, making it a highly efficient option. Time won't be wasted travelling to off-site locations in order to fill up, and refuelling detours should largely be avoided. Jobs will be able to be completed more quickly, giving your drivers more time to spend on other tasks or jobs.
3. It helps to prevent theft
Fuel theft is a common issue in many companies. Frequently it involves employees taking advantage of the company's fuel allowances or fuel cards for their own personal use, so it can be difficult for companies to identify it taking place. Drivers may even be passing their card to friends or family members and you might not know it.
By enabling drivers to refill their vehicles on-site, you can prevent them from abusing their fuel allowance. You have total control over fuel usage - you can monitor who's using it, how much they're using and when they're using it.
