Peter Pan Bus Lines outsources fuel management

Posted on February 4, 2009

FuelQuest Inc., an on-demand software and services company for the global downstream energy industry, announced that Peter Pan Bus Lines will outsource fuel management to FuelQuest's Fuel Center in order to streamline its fuel operations.

 

“In today's economic environment, it is imperative for us to seek out a solution that strategically manages our fuel procurement processes and delivers operational visibility across all of our sites,” said Tom Picknally, senior vice president-maintenance for Peter Pan Bus Lines.

 

The combination of Fuel Center's expert services and FuelQuest's FMS solution will enable Peter Pan Bus Lines to reduce financial exposure to fuel price volatility with reduced freight and fuel costs, automate invoice and delivery reconciliation, and centralize control and provide real-time visibility across all locations.

 

Peter Pan Bus Lines owns and operates a fleet of more than 300 buses and nine bus service centers serving more than 100 communities in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic United States.
