Educational Series: Focus on Fuel Control
Comprehensive site reconciliation that accounts for all fuel being pumped into and out of tanks is critical to achieving true fuel control. Without it, site operators lack timely visibility of common inventory problems including theft, fraud, leaks, meter drift, short deliveries and gray loads, all of which cause variance in fuel inventory. Difficult to detect, these unaccounted fuel losses have the potential to devastate a fuel manager’s bottom line. This article discusses how a technology-driven reconciliation solution can help fuel sites significantly minimize unaccounted losses.
Fleet management is a big job in and of itself. An even bigger job? Fleet management funded by taxpayer dollars.
Government fleet managers who operate in the public sector — whether they are at the federal, state, county, or local level — have a responsibility to ensure that fuel resources are being used responsibly and managed efficiently. However, this represents an ongoing government fleet management challenge, due to the widespread opportunity for fuel theft and reporting errors.
