ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - November 01, 2016) - EPIC Fuels, a leading fuel supplier of ground and aviation fuels, announced today the upcoming release of EPIC FuelTrax™, a cloud-based fuel transportation tracking solution. FuelTrax™ enables fuel customers, including fixed-based operations (FBOs) to monitor and track incoming fuel loads, thereby increasing efficiency of line and ramp staff.
In addition to optimizing the efficiency of line workers by knowing exactly when to meet the delivery trucks to unload fuel, FuelTrax™ will track fuel shipments to remote or mobile fueling locations, such as those used in aerial firefighting operations.
Bill of lading, certificate of analysis, along with other important shipping documents are captured digitally while the fuel is being loaded onto the transport truck. Documents are then sent to EPIC and the customer prior to the carrier departing. This feature enables greater order accuracy and quality assurance by providing real-time validation for the order.
"Leveraging the KeepTrax® patented technology, EPIC FuelTrax™ will provide our customers complete, up-to-the-minute information on where their truckload of fuel is and when it should arrive. It also provides EPIC staff with that same information plus additional data on the load as EPIC can ensure that the customer's expectations for type of fuel, delivery, quality, and quantity are met," says Lee Jones, EPIC Fuels Vice President of Supply.
"EPIC has a strong history of delivering the highest level of service to its customers, and we are delighted to work with the company to bring rich location monitoring and data capture to the fuel distribution industry," said Kedar Benegal, Founder and CEO of KeepTrax, Inc. "By using our technology EPIC is able to provide its customers visibility into load status, more accurate ETAs, and access to digital records of paperwork, significantly simplifying the load tracking process".
EPIC FuelTrax consists of a dashboard for customers and an app for fuel carriers and is expected to be available for all of EPIC's in-network FBOs beginning early 2017. To learn more about EPIC Fuels, please visit www.epicfuels.com or http://www.epicaviationllc.com/fbo-networks/NBAA2016/.
