A key downstream partner of the Singapore Petroleum Company, CNC is 1 of around 20 oil distributors in Singapore. Established in 2008, CNC is managed by a young and determined management team, keen to raise the general standard of equipment used for fuel deliveries in Singapore and Malaysia.
After discussions with the Singapore Government, the company received state funding to assist in the purchase of new state-of-the-art tank and metering equipment from Alpeco Limited in the UK.
Local tank builder Ryobi Kiso is assembling the three new tankers which will be mounted on Volvo chassis incorporating Alpeco MF800 tank and electronic metering equipment. When completed the trucks will be added to CNC’s existing vehicles, bringing the company’s fleet to a total of 10 vehicles. As well as delivering fuel across Singapore, the new tankers will be used to demonstrate Alpeco equipment to other oil companies seeking to enhance their own fleet’s efficiency and safety, with CNC operating as Alpeco’s regional distributor.
Sean Chua is a Director with CNC. Responsible for the company’s day-to-day operations, Mr. Chua says, “Our current road tankers are equipped for both top or bulk discharge operation. The existing truck meters in the truck are the rather old-fashioned mechanical type, so drivers have to manually write the dispensed quantity and issue a hand-written delivery receipt.
“Alpeco’s MF800 gives us a turn-key solution that enables us to have both top up and bulk operations in one vehicle. The flow rate is automatically set for hose reel or bulk discharge. The system also provides information about dispensed product in digital format that then communicates directly with the head office in real-time thereby affording a seamless and fully mobile solution, that integrates with company’s ERP system. Information such as an accurately calculated delivery inventory for each vehicle is automatically sent back to the office as soon as a delivery is completed. Fully detailed and accurate invoices can then be issued on completion of the delivery via the Alpeco MF800.”
The Alpeco MF800 system has full UK type approval and CNC sees it as the prefect product upon which to build and underpin customer confidence in the accurate billing and reporting of delivered product.
