Case Study

Distributor / Jobber

Large petroleum distribution company headquartered in the state of Pennsylvania and operating in four states. Customer buys fuel for its bulk plants and retail sites, and sells significant amounts of fuel to oilfield services companies, commercial customers and wholesale customers.


Customer faced numerous supply shortages and price volatility which made it difficult to obtain product in their core markets. The uncertainty of supply source led to higher operating expenses and increased product pricing.


Guttman Energy developed a customized “keep fill” program for the customer that optimizes their inventory levels. The program also provides the customer with real time data electronically, detailing inventory levels, purchase prices, and local market prices.
