Taking control of fuel management by outsourcing to fuel management experts makes a lot of sense in today’s highly volatile and unpredictable fuel market. Bringing greater predictability along with reduced fuel spend will allow foodservice fleets to better control costs and manage to annual budgets. Managing to budget is always important, but given economic predictions for 2012, it is doubly important. Such savings and budget control will make fleets more competitive against alternative transportation methods such as rail. With all the challenges that lie ahead, outsourced fuel management is a strong option for foodservice companies needing an edge to prosper in the New Year.
