A Large Food Grocer Saves Time & Controls Costs

The Challenge


This company is a large grocer in the northern United States. The company’s had a dream of offering gasoline and diesel to their customers by using unattended gas pumps. They worked with another company, but they were not successful in bringing their dream to life.

The Solution


The Shipley Energy Transport Team worked closely with this grocer to develop a comprehensive plan. We began by matching historical data from the customer’s pricing strategy against what Shipley believed would be a better opportunity. Then, we calculated the savings of having Shipley take care of all the logistics regarding the deliveries and inventory management for both gasoline and diesel. That analysis, along with references from other satisfied Shipley customers, sealed the deal.

The Result


Shipley Transport Trucking means on-time and worry-free fuel deliveries to the customer’s unattended gasoline and diesel stations. Shipley Wholesale Fuels ensures that the customer benefits from reliable cost-saving pricing strategies. With our plan, the grocer has expanded their unattended gasoline stations at a rate of 2-3 per year. Shipley Energy now delivers approximately 40 million gallons to 32 successful unattended fuel locations throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland.
