Almost anything can get delivered right to your doorstep — including fuel.
With mobile fuel, you can get fuel delivered to your fleet or anywhere else your vehicles travel. But it is right for your fleet?
Changing how operations are run in a fleet can get complicated. It’s important to make the best decision that reduces costs and improves operations.
Here are three benefits to choosing mobile fueling for your fleet.
3 Benefits of Mobile Fueling
From new regulations and laws, sustainability has been on everyone’s minds. Not only that, but running operations effectively while saving money. Can using a mobile fuel delivery service help you obtain those goals?
No. 1 Reduce Emissions
How does a truck delivering fuel reduce emissions? According to Geotab, “Over the course of a single month, a fleet vehicle can eliminate an average of 3.45 pounds of CO₂ for each off-route refueling trip.”
By eliminating trips to the gas station, the overall miles the vehicles travel will also be reduced, as well as fuel consumption.
A report by Geotab also stated:
- Gas stations divert drivers about two miles out of the way.
- A gas station stop adds more than 20 minutes to each trip a vehicle makes for fuel.
- Gas station stops release an additional three pounds of CO₂ into the atmosphere monthly on average.
No. 2 Increase Productivity
If refueling your fleet is always a hassle, mobile fueling sounds like a no-brainer. Simplifying the process puts time back in your hands and the drivers.
Plus, all the payments come from one source, which removes all the extra administration work of invoices and payments from multiple drivers filling up their vehicles.
No. 3 Save Money
With the industry growing and evolving, fleet managers have more options to choose from on how they run their fleets.
With mobile fueling, there is more than one company to choose from. If one company isn’t right for you, there are others to choose from, such as Booster and Shell Tap Up.
According to Shell, “Because mobile refueling saves you money in a number of areas — not just productivity and mileage, but through reduce wear and tear as well — it can help lower your total cost of ownership over the long term. It can also help to streamline the fuel reconciliation process, by avoiding the manual errors that can sometimes arise when operators are forced to record their own tank dips or measure their own fuel sales.”
