Fuel Supply Chains: Planning & Execution

How can we cost effectively build resilience, maintain supply security and reliability, and reduce supply risks across Fuel Supply Chains?

The consistent supply of petroleum product across Australia is critical to both its population and its economy. The end-to-end process of supplying fuel to end consumers relies on a number of distribution channels and storage locations, each which must carefully balance supply and demand requirements.

At GRA, we recognise that Fuel supply chains are different – it is a fine balancing act between a production push and a demand pull.

Reactivity and elasticity of the supply chain, risk identification and remediation and complete integration from platforms through to end-consumer usage are key influences to an effective fuel supply chain.

With the landscape changing to incorporate renewable energies, constant evolution in technology to deliver fuel efficiency, and even disruptions (most recently, COVID-19), ensuring flexibility in the supply chain will provide a competitive advantage.
