With advanced, customisable 3D compartment modelling and levels forecasting for individual customers, Optrak4 is the right fit for your Fuel and Oil distribution requirements.
Meeting Customer Requirements
Optrak4 for Fuel Distributors allows you to plan for the different requirements of your customers from domestic oil to petrol station forecourts. This can include site-based rules as to which vehicles with which livery can be used where or restrictions on vehicle type and safety specification (e.g. which personnel has been trained for what). Optrak ensures that all compatibility rules are respected in the plan, flagging where the rules have been broken.
Matching your Vehicle
Optrak4 models your compartmented tankers, taking account of individual tank capacity and whether or not it is metered. You can also build in rules about dedicated vehicles, compartments and product incompatibilities (petrol and domestic fuel oil, for example).
In loading calculations, Optrak4 includes specific measures such as axle weight calculations to ensure safe loading.
Routing your Orders
Optrak4 is able to respect the relevant rules set by your customers for delivery. By prioritising customers according to days remaining to due date it will ensure that the really urgent orders take top priority while still being able to combine these with less urgent, but close-by, orders for efficient trips. To help the planner visualise the requirements Optrak4’s map display can color-code the orders based on date.
For larger customers, such as factories, offices, truck companies and farms that generally order much larger quantities with more precise and exacting delivery requirements – including booked delivery times – Optrak can set special priorities to ensure that the service levels of these orders are met.

Kuehne and Nagel
“Optrak4 offered a more cost effective and personalised system that catered for our particular requirements and the decision to use an advanced routing and scheduling system has been fully justified by the benefits that Kuehne + Nagel has achieved. We have greatly improved the time we spend on planning and Optrak generates very efficient transport runs for a very complex daily transport operation.
Furthermore, thanks to Optrak4, we can meet the requirement to deliver next day to any location throughout the UK. We generally achieve 97-98% of this target on a daily basis. Optrak4 can plan effectively for consignments of any shape and size as long as we have the right information such as vehicle types, driver working times and product details for example.”
