- Long term partnership with the Federation of Road Transport Operators
- Advantages offered to the members of the federation by the cooperation with Petrom
Petrom, the largest oil and gas producer in South-Eastern Europe and FORT (Federation of Road Transport Operators) signed a convention for the supply of fuel for the federation members for a volume of over 2,000,000 liters delivered per month. The major benefit of this convention for more than 4000 transport operators members of FORT is the reduction of fuel costs per km achieved by combining the advantages offered by the collaboration with Petrom.
The Convention stipulates the terms and conditions in which the federation members can individually sign fuel supply contracts at the same price regardless of the individual consumption by cumulating the consumption at the level of the Federation.
The immediate benefits come from the final acquisition price of the, fuel, as all FORT members benefit from the same discount applied at the pump price, regardless of the individual consumption, as well as of the fuel consumption crediting. Another important advantage is the control of fuel cost by monitoring and administering the fleet in real time, by using PetromCard Online service. The use of Petrom cards offers the transport operators from the Federation access to the largest distribution network in Romania and the guarantee of quality fuels.
