Water Company Saves Big Money by Using Fuel Management Company

Aqua America is one of the largest publically traded water companies in the country. They have operations in more than a dozen states buying diesel fuel with their fuel card and using bulk tanks for on-highway and off-highway use.

Most days, Aqua America drivers don’t know where they are going until they come into work. Charles Stevenson, Fleet Manager said “Sokolis Group knowledge of the fuel supply chain is unmatched. They have helped us save a lot of money and improved vendor service.”

With Aqua bulk fuel purchases, we were able to bring in over a dozen additional vendors that we knew could do the job. We also changed the benchmark that Aqua had used in the past for its bulk fueling bids to a much more competitive index.

Through making the bid process more competitive, Aqua was able to save more than $140,000 just in the first year. Additionally, the fueling data they receive and information far surpasses what they had in the past.

Since some drivers start from certain areas which don’t have bulk fuel, and others start where bulk fuel is available, a system was created using their fuel card to determine where their drivers should fuel. This allows less out of route miles for the driver and more importantly allows greater control of their fuel spend.
