SAVE TIME & MONEY FOR YOUR FLEET
Reduce Fleet Management Headaches
Fleet managers are all too familiar with the difficulties of drivers forgetting or running out of time to refuel their truck at the end of their shift. The rush to refuel in the morning can delay deliveries, affect efficiency and increase overtime. This presents a challenge to complete all deliveries in a day, impacting your client service and reputation.
Refuelling your fleet can add a lot of overhead and slow down deliveries. Drivers can spend 30 to 40 minutes or more refuelling their truck on the job, which includes the drive to the cardlock or retail station, line ups, the driver’s extra idle time, actual refuelling time, and then getting back on route. All of this lost time can be the source of costly overtime hours and equipment downtime. Many operations managers also face other refuelling pains such as the theft or misappropriation of fuel, and an inability to properly track a fleet’s fuel consumption.
Direct Fueling Maximizes Efficiency And Productivity
Catalina Fuels offers scheduled mobile on-site refuelling, allowing your fleet to be refuelled on weekends or after hours when parked, eliminating downtime and maximizing productivity. Direct-to-equipment refuelling eliminates the risk of theft by 100%.
By bringing fuel directly to your trucks, you save up to 30 to 40 minutes per unit, per day, improving efficiency, reducing labour costs and increasing revenue. Our service provides substantial savings, allowing you to focus on moving more goods and delivering more packages.

On-Site Refueling Helps Global Food and Beverage Distributer Make More Deliveries
Over the years, problems with on-site tank storage had resulted in considerable company exposure and negative attention from environmentalists. Additionally, operations managers faced pressure to improve productivity, and after comprehensive analysis of their distribution teams in action, their focus turned towards minimizing the time drivers spent refuelling, a task which on average amounted to 25 minutes every day via on-site tanks or cardlocks.
Catalina Fuel mobile on-site service enabled 50% of the distributor’s fleet to deliver an extra 4-6 cases of product per day. These extra deliveries maximized the distribution capacity of their existing fleet and reduced the demand to purchase additional delivery vehicles to support growth. Further value included a reduction in overtime hours and a heightened flexibility to handle emergencies and/or rush deliveries, improving customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Catalina Fuels has been a premier fuel supplier for over 15 years, and now provides mobile services to dozens of locations across Southern Ontario
