21 Mar Flyers Energy Snags Multi-Station Wholesale Fuel Deal
Auburn, CA – March 21, 2019 – Northern California fuel jobber Flyers Energy, LLC (http://www.flyersenergy.com/) announces it has signed a multi-station contract with SAMCO of Bakersfield, CA and has reimaged three SAMCO convenience store stations under the Shell brand. Each reimage package comes with a ten year distribution deal to be serviced by Flyers Transportation.
Flyers currently represents five different fuel brands to approximately 120 independent fuel stations. “Each deal requires a creative approach to determine and satisfy the needs of the station owner and the wants of the brand,” said Shelly Thomas, Flyers Energy Wholesale Manager. “When it’s time to renew their contract, owners often have their sights on a specific brand, but it may not be the best match for the station.”
Major distributors may have specific requirements like minimum volumes, driveway access, number of dispensers, and a minimum distance from sites of the same brand. Flyers routinely assesses the station owner’s needs and challenges in order to choose the right brand partner for that location.
“A wholesale contract represents a long-term relationship, not a quick score. We want to have a respectful partnership with the dealer so that it benefits all parties. The dealer’s success is what we consider a win,” said Flyers Energy Director of Sales and Marketing Jay Galvin.
This year Flyers Energy, LLC celebrates 40 years in business, distributing approximately 2 million gallons of fuel per day via wholesale deliveries and cardlock sites and fuel networks.
