Bulk Fuel Logistics

Petroleum and Alternative Fuels

We provide services to customers working in the petroleum and alternative fuels sectors, among other UK bulk transport sectors. Our strategically located depot network allows us to utilise fuel-specification equipment 24 hours a day so that we can flex and redeploy resources in times of peak demand and low demand.

We have one of the largest baffle tank fleets in the UK, as well as single and multi-compartment, and lagged tanks, making bulk liquid haulage a safe practice for our drivers. On top of this, we stay up to date with fuel industry standard qualifications from the SQA for the benefit of our customers and the safety of our drivers and the general public.

Examples of fuels that we transport are:

  • Road fuels (diesel and petrol)

  • Aviation fuel (kerosene)

  • Ethanol and bioethanol

  • Liquified petroleum gas (propane, butane, etc.)

  • Liquified natural gas

  • Bitumen

Our experts are well aware of the regulations and standards that dictate the transportation of petrochemicals. As such, we always strive to exceed the current standards set and work tirelessly to ensure our driver training is constantly refreshed to minimise the risk of incidents.

Other Liquid Chemicals

We are the largest bulk liquid carrier of general chemicals in the UK. Performing this feat has required strategic investment into diverse tanks so that we can support our customers regardless of the liquid chemicals they manufacture. 

Lined tanks are currently a major focal point of our business, including but not limited to lagged/unlagged, phenolic resin, and rubber-lined tanks.

With the size and importance of the bulk liquid sector, we place great importance on the management of our fleet to maximise liquid tanker transport. This involves drafting vendor-managed inventory (VMI) agreements with a large portion of our customers for the most efficient 24/7 transport of bulk liquids downstream from the manufacturer.

VMI agreements also facilitate long-term working relationships that are mutually beneficial for all parties involved, allowing our customers to be as cost-effective as possible while remaining responsive to the needs of their business.
