Buying fuel for your business can be a cumbersome process. Whether you use 10,000 or 10,000,000 gallons of fuel, the traditional process can be slow, complex and difficult to manage. To make sure that you are finding the best deal for your business you must:
- Identify and contact local fuel suppliers. This is even more complicated if you are managing multiple locations.
- Monitor prices using a combination of fax, email and phone. Because prices are changing throughout the day it is almost impossible to be sure that you have every supplier's most current price.
- Provide the supplier with the most recent delivery instructions and make sure that any special conditions have been factored into the suppliers' bids.
- Coordinate contracts, payables and recordkeeping.
