Delivery businesses are booming, especially in and around the Dallas Fort Worth area. From food delivery to legal documents, and furniture – every minute counts. The faster you can make a delivery, the more business you’ll have. Since fuel powers the delivery industry, read on to see how you can have gasoline and diesel delivered straight to your trucks, cars and delivery vans.

You’ve probably never heard the term, “wet-hosing”.  But, it’s when a tanker truck pumps gas or diesel directly into the tank of another vehicle.

Until recently, wet-hosing was mainly used for big construction companies. A large tanker would arrive at the job site and fill up the construction equipment and vehicles. Contractors like the convenience of arriving on the job site and having their equipment (caterpillars, backhoes, and cranes) already filled with fuel.

Another industry that’s used wet-hosing for years is the agricultural and farming industry. Having fuel pumped right into their combines and tractors is very convenient for the farmers and saves them lots of time.

Bulk fuel transport provider, Ricochet Fuel, has fuel tankers of all sizes deliver gasoline and diesel to delivery vehicles, and entire fleets all over Texas and the surrounding states. This unique delivery method saves business owners in the delivery industry time and money.

Top 3 Benefits of Wet-Hosing:

  1. Superior Convenience – Gas is delivered directly to your vehicles. For example, if you have a significant food delivery service with a fleet of cars and vans, wet-hosing can save you time and labor costs. A fuel tanker will arrive during off-hours and fuel the vehicles in need. Then, when your drivers come to work, their tanks will be full, and they will be ready to start deliveries. No more waiting in line at the gas station and running behind.
  2. Tighter Control of Fuel Costs: Direct fueling significantly reduces theft as compared to gas cards. With gas cards, there is a real possibility that all the gasoline pumped isn’t just for business use. It could be for other personal vehicles including cars of friends and families. You could also be paying for non-fuel items like candy bars and coffee.
  3. More Productivity: No more stopping to fuel up during work hours. This will save you money in labor costs which could be significant if you have a large delivery crew. When you know your vehicles are gassed up and ready for deliveries, you will be able to have a more accurate schedule and ensure deliveries are on time.
