Fuel Up On-Site
Wet hosing, also known as fleet fueling, direct fueling, or mobile on-site fueling has been around for decades. This fuel management strategy is when a fuel transport vehicle comes to your vehicle depot each day and pumps fuel directly from one tank into another.
While wet hosing can be used in many industries, it is often performed for farming and agricultural machinery, large-scale construction site equipment and construction vehicles that cannot be fueled at any retail or commercial fueling station.
Benefits of Wet Hosing
- Total fleet fueling: All vehicles are filled at the same time after hours.
- Fuel inventory control: Direct fueling greatly reduces the possibility of product theft.
- Convenience: Fuel is delivered directly to the machinery in need.
- Increased productivity: Drivers start the day fully fueled. Less need to stop for fuel during work hours.
- Environmentally conscious: Reduces insurance concerns associated with on-site fueling tanks.
Is Wet Hosing Right for Your Business?
To help you decide if wet hosing is right for your business, consider the following:
- Your worksite’s location relative to the nearest fueling station. Can your fleet get to and from the fuel site quickly and easily? Is your location able to have an on-site fuel tank?
- Time and resources. Are either a challenge for you? Is your fleet always able to access and afford the fuel it needs?
- Fuel inventory management. Is manual tracking of fuel consumption, supply and costs contributing to inaccurate record keeping?
With on-site fuel delivery, accurate inventory management and less trips to the station, wet hosing can be a convenient, cost-effective alternative for your fleet.
