Survey finds Mabanaft’s supply standards remain high

As one of the UK’s largest independent fuel importers and wholesalers, Mabanaft is proud of the strong and lasting relationships it has built with customers. Part of this is down to listening to their requirements and delivering products and services that meet their needs. Each year the company surveys its customers to help ensure that standards remain high and was extremely pleased with the feedback received this year.

Clare Charlton, inland sales manager at Mabanaft, said: Despite the continued challenges of 2021, customers are telling us we have provided excellent service and delivered a reliable supply of fuel throughout.

“We have also received helpful suggestions on ways to improve certain aspects of our service and will be using this feedback to inform future developments. It was interesting to learn that customers want to know more about fuel delivery services (we are contacting interested parties to see how we might meet their needs) and gain insight into customer interest in new fuels.

“Requests for Mabanaft to have a presence in additional locations will also be taken into account. We’d like to thank everyone who took part for their valuable input and look forward to working with you all over the coming years.”
