Fuel is a necessity for many businesses to be able to operate effectively. Companies such as construction, fleets and delivery companies, they all need fuel in order to operate their business. Fuel is also a major cost for businesses, and prices can fluctuate significantly. Companies must therefore carefully monitor fuel usage and prices and there are strategies to keep fuel costs low as well as convenience and reduced labor costs by running out of fuel. Star Oilco is Portland’s preferred fuel supplier and works with many businesses to keep their businesses running by providing fuel deliveries.  

Impact of Fuel Shortage On Businesses 

Fuel shortages can lead to many issues if the fuel is unavailable. Employees have to take time while on the clock to go refuel or productivity simply stops because of the need for fuel to run equipment. It can pause construction, delay deadlines, and result in severe financial loss. In the event of fuel shortage, having a reliable source to refuel can make a difference.

Downtime in Construction

Diesel fuel plays a lifeblood in construction. Heavy construction equipment constantly consumes fuel. Without fuel, all the construction equipment is useless. The need for more fuel can standstill the whole process of construction. That results in downtime, missing the deadline, and could potentially affect the reputation of the construction business.  Therefore, it is important to plan fuel logistics carefully in order to ensure that the construction equipment has adequate fuel supply. This can be achieved by having an efficient fuel storage and distribution system. Moreover, it is important to monitor the fuel levels regularly to ensure that the construction equipment has adequate fuel. Many construction companies will use fuel cans for their projects, would leads to empty or half-full cans laying around the job site, employees running into town to fill up the empty cans frequently, and potentially spillage each time a fuel can is being used or filled up. We suggest using a company such as ourselves that can provide a fuel delivery service and keep your employees working. Whether we provide fuel directly to your equipment, or you have one of our fuel cubes on site, we can deliver fuel to your job sites and keep your business in operation. 

Concern of Perishable Items in Grocery Stores 

Grocery stores keep perishable products in refrigerated trailers to ensure freshness. If the fuel runs out, the required temperature cannot be maintained, which can affect the quality of the products. This results in a bad impact on the grocery store business. Having a fuel supplier come out routinely to fill up your refrigerated trailers allows you to focus on other aspects of your business and not worry about whether or not your reefer will run out of fuel. By eliminating the possibility of running out of fuel, you also decrease the chances of having to get emergency fuel on nights or weekends when there could be other fee’s in order to delivery during off hours. 

Logistical Nightmares For Truck Fleets 

Shortage of fuel for truck fleets can disrupt delivery schedules. Fuel shortage is challenging for truck fleets and disturbs any company’s supply process.  Companies should plan ahead and make alternative arrangements to ensure their fuel needs are met. They should also develop strategies for managing fuel demand and budgeting for fuel-related expenses. Additionally, truck fleets should be aware of potential fuel shortages and plan accordingly by having a company like Star Oilco come out and either fuel up their trucks on a routine basis, or top off one of our fuel cubes that you can have right on your property. Either way, Star Oilco is a local fuel supplier that looks forward to being the solution for businesses across the Pacific Northwest.
