Contactless and clean fueling on the go. That sounds great, doesn’t it? Especially in a world where “essential” has taken on a whole new meaning. In a time when essential parcel delivery, food distribution, and cleaning services perform around the clock and more frequently, it’s imperative that fleet managers ensure quick, safe, and easy fueling so that drivers can focus on their duties instead of on the fuel gauge. Thankfully, Booster—a same-day fuel delivery service—is here to help.
Booster is a service that brings fuel directly to your fleet for the same price as you’d pay at a gas station. Not only does it simplify fleet refueling, but each of Booster’s fuel deliveries is more environmentally friendly than conventional fueling, reducing vehicle miles traveled and the associated CO2 emissions.
It isn’t difficult to conclude that fuel delivery services simplify fleet operations. But a worldwide pandemic has increased the demand for such services. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Booster has experienced a 25% surge in fuel delivered to essential services, such as parcel delivery and logistics, food delivery and distribution, construction, and cleaning companies.
“Given today’s state of affairs, mobile fuel on-demand has become even more essential for getting goods into the hands of people who need them most,” says Frank Mycroft, founder and CEO of Booster Fuels.
NEW TO DC
Booster recently expanded its market to Washington DC. DC is the most recent government permitting mobile fueling as the service grows in popularity. Earlier this year, mobile fueling permits and ordinances were passed by state governments in Maryland, Texas, and Washington as states rethink the future of cities and the innovative role mobile fueling plays. Booster helps cities eliminate the need to plan for gas stations and the environmental hazards and road congestion they bring.
Booster has worked with local regulators and fire departments to provide its mobile fueling service, often exceeding requirements for environmental quality and safety. The company has secured all the required permits and regulatory licenses to deliver gas and diesel in DC and Maryland.
Booster launches in DC with several new, local customers including Falcon Transport, Dutch Mill Catering, Reston Limousine, and Shorb Landscaping. With six local Booster employees, this office marks the company’s seventh major market following recent expansion to Dallas, Austin, Nashville, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle. In total, Booster has received permits to operate in more than 50 cities or counties across the US.
“We’re proud to support essential services and create good jobs by bringing contactless fueling to DC and Maryland,” says Jordan Valdés, Booster’s DC-based director of public affairs. “Our trained service professionals are committed to a level of service, safety, and transparency that sets a new standard in gas and diesel delivery.”
CONTACTLESS & EASY
Booster’s fleet is made up of proprietary carbon-neutral purple mini tankers. Each mini-tanker fits in a regular-sized parking space and provides 100% contactless service. To date, the company has delivered more than 30 million gallons of fuel and works with more than 500 fleet customers across the US.
