We’ve come past midway in our Pipeline To Pump™ series. Today, we’re talking about the fuel delivery segment of the transfer process. For most of the public, a fuel delivery truck is the first thing they’ll have contact with on the Pipeline To Pump journey. In order for these end consumers to heat their homes with propane and fill their cars up at the local gas station, fuel must be delivered from bulk storage plants to dispensers.
At Westmor, we build a number of delivery trucks including our Blueline® Bobtail, Crane Truck, Lube Van, Refined Fuel Truck, and DEF Delivery Truck. Each truck offers a different solution that fits the type of fuel needing delivery—propane, refined fuel, heating oil, or service fluids. Oil and gas companies around the U.S. require varying designs and specifications, often based on the standards of their geographic location. We provide multiple models of each of our delivery trucks in order to help you keep your fleets consistent and meet your customers’ expectations.
As we’ve mentioned before during this series, elements within the fuel industry are highly interconnected. The delivery segment is no exception. Refined fuel trucks and propane bobtails will fill up at bulk plants and travel to farms, residential homes, and c-stores. These trucks are hitting multiple touch points on the fuel transfer process.
Our aim at Westmor is to understand fueling as a system. We don’t just manufacture delivery trucks. We create the plants where they fill up and the dispensers they load off to. We design and manage the construction of the new gas stations that keep the industry growing. When we understand the whole process, we do a better job of doing each part.
Next week, we’ll dive into dispensing and show you all the ways that we build and service the (almost) final segment of Pipeline To Pump.
