Working in the rail industry is no easy job. Millions of citizens rely on rail services every day, whether for transportation or for getting products to their local stores. For many working in the rail industry, fuel management is a constant concern. Guttman Energy is not only here to offer affordable fuel whenever you need it, but we’re always looking for new ways to serve the evolving needs of the rail industry.
Rising Fuel Costs
Diesel prices hit a record high in May 2022, impacting typical drivers and fleets alike. The rail industry is one of the first sectors to feel the pressure when fuel costs begin to rise. At Guttman, we work with each client individually to understand their unique needs, concerns, and expectations. Then, we collaborate to create a customized fuel plan with price contracts and a wide range of fuel options.
The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that, by 2045, total freight will reach a stunning 25 billion tons. Rail is currently the third-largest freight transport method (behind truck and pipeline) and continues to become increasingly important. From 2015 to 2045, it’s predicted that the total weight of freight moved by rail will increase by nearly 25%.
The demand for rail services doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. As the years pass, it will become even more important for our rail customers to get the fuel they need at competitive prices. That’s why we offer fixed-price contracts to help you budget while ensuring you always have the fuel you need.
Sustainable and eco-friendly business practices are front-of-mind for many companies these days. However, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has warned that our moves toward a sustainable future have slowed down over the past couple of years.
Can we rework this to talk about carbon offsets or Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions reduction? We don’t sell anything other than diesel fuel and contract price programs to the rail industry but trying to focus on the other two examples I listed above under sustainability.
