Uses Oil Link™ to optimise logistics and improve the service offered to customers

We had used other suppliers in the past, but Sensile Technologies combined price, quality and a user-friendly interface into a solution that exactly met our needs. With Sensile Technologies’ help we can further improve our service to customers, reduce our logistics costs, and reduce CO2 emissions.

We began installing the Oil Link™ solution in January 2006 for heating oil and diesel tanks throughout Sweden. Transport planners use the data from Oil Link™ to forecast the latest possible supply date for fuel, thus optimising delivery routes. This type of “vendor managed inventory” is becoming increasing popular throughout the industry and has been demonstrated to yield significant cost savings for fuel suppliers and distributors.

In early 2007 we were looking for unique remote monitoring equipment for all of our fuel types across our international businesses, and again turned to Sensile Technologies to provide the solution. After the positive experience with Oil Link™, I was happy to recommend the company and the product to the rest of our organisation.

Statoil understood that it’s impossible to compete only on the price when marketing fuel and that offering a better service to customers is a key differentiating factor in the industry. Sensile Technologies’ remote sensing solutions allow us to not only optimise logistics, but also improve the service we are offering to our customers.
