At Sokolis Group, when we make initial contact with a potential client, through our research or a referral, we feel that we can be of assistance to them with their fleet fuel management program, therefore reducing diesel fuel cost. By gathering further operational information from a potential client we can make a pretty good assumption, through our experience, whether or not our fuel management service would be of value to them.
The next step is to offer a no cost, no obligation detailed fuel audit, evaluation, and analysis of their current fuel purchasing and fuel management system. This is where skepticism starts to build. Whether we are communicating with the CEO, COO, CFO, or the fleet managers, they may question the fact that a professional fleet fuel management company is offering this detailed analysis at no cost? What company does something for nothing? This is too good to be true. Why would Sokolis Group, a respected fuel management company offer something for nothing? Because more than 80% of the potential companies for which we perform this fuel analysis can significantly reduce their diesel fuel cost by engaging our services. This is not to say that 80% of companies are buying or managing fuel poorly, it just means it can be done better. Sure, some companies are basket cases, but many only need some refinement and fine tuning. A large company that can reduce its diesel fuel cost by one or two cents per gallon, can save potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. The small and medium size companies, the private fleets, for which transportation is not their core business can potentially reduce their fleet fuel cost by as much as ten to twenty cents per gallon.
For those that take advantage of our no cost offer the end result can only be one of two scenarios. Either Sokolis Group has identified areas of opportunity to reduce fleet fuel cost, or the company is doing the best it can and they now have the peace of mind that their fuel management systems are effective. For those for whom we know improvements can be made we let them know what their potential savings will be by engaging our services. Once again, “too good to be true?” We can tell you this, it is good and it is true, so why not take advantage of our no cost offer. You will either gain the peace of mind that all is well with your fleet fuel management program, or your company will have a healthier bottom line by reducing your fleet fuel cost.
