Security of supply at truck stops

Security of supply at truck stops

You told us that our job is to make sure you can get on with your job, so security of supply is a top priority for us at Z.

At an operational level, we’ve been working on understanding why and when truck stops run low on fuel or are otherwise unavailable, and how we can improve this. After all, supplying fuel is what we do, and customers rightly expect us to be able to do so consistently.

The 99.9% up-time milestone reached in September means that out of the available 4 million minutes of time to provide fuel at our truck stops, they were down just 4,615 minutes. This was due to a variety of reasons including mechanical problems, electrical failure and simply running out of fuel due to unexpected periods of high demand. We are still working on getting even closer to 100%!
