Harvest Energy picks innovative solutions

From May 2014, Norbert Dentressangle will provide ‘continuous, intensive and dynamic fuel operations’ for Harvest Energy
In a new three-year contract, Harvest Energy has appointed Norbert Dentressangle to distribute road fuels to commercial and retail outlets across the UK.
Central to the appointment is Norbert Dentressangle’s proven capability in managing continuous, intensive and dynamic fuel delivery operations on a UK wide basis, which can include handling volume swings in excess of +20% week-on-week.
“During the exhaustive review of the provision of our road fuels distribution, Norbert Dentressangle consistently challenged the norm,” said Simon Davis, Harvest Energy’s head of sales and logistics. “The company came up with innovative solutions to improve our supply chain service and deliver cost efficiencies.”
The new service agreement which commences on 5th May, will involve a core resource of dedicated vehicles. The operation will be managed by a team based at Norbert Dentressangle’s Thurrock site, and will be supported by the company’s Flexi Fuel Fleet regional management network and central functional specialists.
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.
Ann Dawson, managing director, Norbert Dentressangle Tankers, added: “As a major logistics business already delivering a significant amount of UK motor fuel sales, we’re delighted to add Harvest Energy, which is experiencing rapid year-on-year market growth, to our expanding customer portfolio within this industry sector.”
