The Perfect Partnership
We recently visited Gasrec’s fuelling facility at Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal. This site supports distribution fleets in moving from diesel to cleaner fuels, currently servicing around 250 trucks each day, and is projected to facilitate 500-600 daily by the end of 2021.
With the help of TSG UK, Gasrec can manage their fuel and equipment from any computer, without the need to install any software. Having installed a DiaLOG fuel management system, all of the refuelling data is recorded to create a picture of a vehicle’s visit to the site. In addition, TSG wrote bespoke software for Gasrec to meet their requirements, enabling them to edit it themselves without the need for a third party.
Products like DiaLOG are particularly important as the use of alternative fuels continues to grow. Most businesses have competent knowledge of the performance of diesel trucks, but less so when it comes to cleaner alternatives and the financial and economic benefits these bring.
‘The DiaLOG system is a real step forward for us in terms of the data we have available,’ said James Westcott, Chief Commercial Officer at Gasrec. ‘It goes beyond how much fuel is taken and when – it enables us to look at how long a vehicle is filling for.’
Working in partnership with Gasrec, TSG aims to be at the forefront of the move towards cleaner, alternative fuels by supporting the increased infrastructure required to facilitate growth in the market.
‘For us, it’s about finding a partner that can help us scale up and deliver for the industry in a way that it’s used to with diesel incumbents,’ Westcott added. ‘TSG is a good cultural fit for us in the way they approach their business. ‘Having a partner that can support us in our ambitious development programme is very important and I think we’ve found the right one with TSG.’
Paul Brooks, Sales Director for TSG UK’s Fleet & Gas lines, said: ‘As a business, we recognise that change is coming to the fuel industry and as a responsible business, we want to be at the forefront of that. ‘Gasrec is a leading, forward-thinking company and it’s exciting to be in a growing relationship with them as we get involved in new technologies.’
