BLACKBURN, United Kingdom — EG Group, which operates as Euro Garages in the United Kingdom and has more than 900 convenience stores in the United States, has entered into a five-year global contract with Dover Fueling Solutions (DFS) for global wetstock management services.
Sites within the EG Group global network—including those in the United States, Europe and Australia—will receive real-time monitoring and advanced wetstock investigation services, designed to help businesses lower operational costs and improve profit margins while keeping them legally and environmentally compliant.
EG Group will have access to fuel loss identification services, determining losses caused by a variety of factors, including leakage, delivery shortages, spillage and evaporation, theft, fraud and meter drift. It will also have access to the Fairbanks Station Manager online web portal, which centralizes data from across the network, giving users greater insight into stock levels, pump and nozzle activity and alarm notifications, as well as access to reports that help to maintain forecourt efficiency and availability.
The contract engages DFS as EG Group’s global wetstock management partner for its current estate, but also for sites and networks it acquires during the term of the contract. Blackburn, U.K.-based EG Group already has a strong presence in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, the United States and Australia, and has grown significantly in recent years.
"We are confident that the wetstock management services from DFS will truly benefit the EG Group network,” said Guy Bickerstaffe, group director of development for Austin, Texas-based DFS. “Having a third-party monitoring service take care of our wetstock management gives us peace of mind, leaving us safe in the knowledge that even the smallest instances of fuel loss don’t go unnoticed. It’s a real cost-saving investment for us, with the added benefit of protecting the environment from the detrimental effects of leaks to ground.”
