We chose goRoam from BizSpeed for its reputation with other distributors in our market and because it has workflows specifically designed for each industry — lubricants in our case. This industry-specific focus makes a difference. I’ve been able to pull actionable data so easily and have been amazed how quickly our drivers took to the app.
We’re at the point where 86% of our orders don’t need manual invoicing, and the number is growing. The time it saves our team is invaluable. I don’t know how we made decisions before without the comprehensive, real-time picture we get of our fleet utilization. Thinking about how much information we were missing, it’s hard to believe we didn’t do this sooner.

Wet hose fueling is also known as onsite fueling or fleet fueling. Wet hosing is associated with filling assets such as construction or agricultural equipment that it is not practical to fill at a fast station. Fleet fueling is a type of wet hosing where onsite fueling is done at a customer’s yard, and all trucks, trailers, and equipment are filled from a truck with metered delivery.
“Time is money”. When your drivers fill themselves, you are paying their time. And if they go to a gas station or commercial truck stop, the fueling time is likely more than a quick in and out. Fleet fueling companies that use mobile apps like goRoam are fully integrated into truck meters and are optimized for efficiency and safety. A 30-minute fuel stop can add as much as $.75/gallon in fuel costs. And if you have your own onsite tank, you are responsible for environmental compliance, managing inventory, dealing with tank spills, tank maintenance, and purchasing fuel at the best price.
Fleet fuel providers should use a mobile app that electronically integrates with truck meters. The mobile apps should use a barcode scanner to verify they are filling your asset, and the product being pumped is compatible so you don’t get DYED diesel pumped into a CLEAR on-road asset. The barcode scanning process should verify all assets are YOUR assets, so yards with multiple customer trucks don’t get filled on your account. You should expect an electronic receipt with a detail of each asset filled, times, GPS readings, and meter start/end.
Mobile apps such as goRoam automate driver activities so drivers can focus on delivering and not paperwork. Mobile apps help with safety by scanning tank and asset barcodes to ensure the right product is delivered, eliminating cross fills. Mobile apps make drivers more efficient. No more fumbling with paper, losing paperwork, waiting on paperwork, asking drivers where they are, or how much product is left in the truck. Some drivers are reluctant to move from paper to electronic delivery because on paper, they can do anything they want with no controls or oversight.
The ROI is dependent on your fleet, the number of stops per day per truck, and the number of trucks in each depot. A best-in-class optimization engine must support multi-compartment, multi-vehicle optimization. This is known a Multi Traveling Salesman Problem (MTSP), and with bulk products it is even more difficult in that it must also support multiple compartments per vehicle. For lubricants where you have 10+ trucks per depot and make 8-12 stops per day, typical savings are a 15% reduction in total transportation costs. You can deliver with 8.5 trucks versus 10 trucks. For fuels and chemicals where drivers make fewer stops per day, the ROI on optimization can be 5-10% savings. In propane and home heat with 15-35 stops per day, the savings can be more than 20%.
BizSpeed has pre-built connectors for several ERP systems. And we have a full test suite specifically for bulk distributors to handle 2-way integration. This includes sending orders “ready to route” to our routing engine, handling one Sales Order (SO) with many fulfillment requests (pick tickets), and sending completed orders to the ERP for electronic invoicing.
Petroleum logistics involves managing the transportation of products like fuel, lubricants, home heating oil, and propane from the distributor’s storage tanks to the customer’s tanks and assets. The last mile delivery is the final and most challenging part of this supply chain. Last mile visibility provides real-time information about the location and status of the products during the last mile delivery. It enables distributors to track their products and identify any potential issues that may arise during the delivery process.
