Avfuel delivers more fuel after Hurricane Harvey

Avfuel has delivered 30% more fuel to the US regions affected by Hurricane Harvey since the storm hit last week. The fuel and services provider said its logistics and dispatch department has maintained open lines of communication with customers for reliable fuel supply and has operated around the clock.

“When it comes to natural disasters, we are proactive in getting ahead of the storm and our customers’ fuel needs,” said Ben Spence, Avfuel’s dispatch manager. “Our redundant supply situation and logistic systems allows us to handle unforeseen weather emergencies like Hurricane Harvey.”

Avfuel said the measures have helped FBOs receive enough fuel to evacuate passengers and planes, keep tanks heavy for stability during storms, and sustain operations for medevac, relief efforts, and their tenants’ return.

“One of the most important aspects of fuel supply in the wake of a natural disaster is open lines of communication,” said Spence. “We work closely internally with our supply and management team, as well as Avplan Trip Support, whose in-house meteorologists monitor the storm’s trajectory so we know who will be most affected and where the storm may be headed next.”

“Our team stays on the job throughout the whole process,” said Spence. “Before, during and after the hurricane we’re calling customers at their FBOs—or on their cell phones if they’re closed—reassessing their needs and finding the necessary supply.”
