Fuel contract for Norbert

Harvest Energy has awarded Norbert Dentressangle a new three-year contract to distribute road fuels to commercial and retail outlets across the UK.

The new fuel distribution service commences on 5th May 2014 and will involve a core resource of dedicated vehicles.

The contract will be managed by a team at the firm’s Thurrock site, and supported by the Norbert Dentressangle Tankers Flexi Fuel Fleet regional management network.

All vehicles will operate with an integrated state-of-the-art tracking and driving style management system, which incorporates an automated reporting function to manage fuel efficiency and safe driving.

Simon Davis, head of sales and logistics at Harvest Energy, said: “During the exhaustive review of the provision of our road fuels distribution, Norbert Dentressangle consistently challenged the norm and came up with innovative solutions to improve our supply chain service and deliver cost efficiencies.”

Harvest Energy is part of the Blue Ocean group, one of Europe’s largest independent suppliers and blenders of motor fuels, with operations in the UK, Holland and Germany.

In the UK, Harvest Energy reckons it is the fastest growing fuel brand and supplies more than 10 per cent of the UK’s motor fuel requirements.
