Bharat Petroleum ties up with Humsafar India for doorstep diesel delivery; small industries to benefit
New Delhi, Jul 27 (KNN) Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) has tied up with Humsafar India – a Delhi-headquartered start-up – for doorstep delivery of diesel in 20-litre jerrycans in the national capital for customers seeking diesel in quantities as low as 20 litres.
According to BPCL, the doorstep diesel delivery in jerrycans, titled ‘Safar20’, is expected to benefit small housing societies, malls, hospitals, banks, construction sites, farmers, mobile towers, education institutes along with small industries.
“Doorstep diesel delivery is a new revolution in the field of energy distribution in India. It is a cost-effective solution for India’s ever-growing need for diesel as fuel is required on an everyday basis for the smooth functioning of various institutes. To ease the lives of the end-consumers BPCL has started the facility of door-step diesel delivery through 20 liter jerry cans. The company plans to introduce this facility in about 25 per cent its fuel pumps in the National capital”, said Kshitij Midha, Territory manager retail, BPCL.
“After catering to bulk supply customers through diesel door delivery, the wave of home delivery offering convenience in small quantities of 20 litres in Jerry cans will be a hit among small requirement customers'', Midha added.
He also said that this jerry can service aims to ensure a hassle-free supply of the fuel directly to end-users and also avoid unnecessary fuel spillage, unsafe handling, and/or pilferages.
The Jerry Can is PESO approved and comes sealed with a seven-wire seal, having a unique number. Hence, no adulteration and pilferage in between transportation can exist, Midha said.
“Doorstep diesel delivery is approved by the government and is a new-age concept of effective distribution of diesel. It allows fuel start-ups to maintain quality and create availability of fuel for the consumers. Earlier, the consumers of diesel had to procure it from retail outlets in barrels which used to cause a lot of spillage and dead mileage in energy procurement. Efficient energy distribution infrastructure was lacking. Doorstep diesel delivery will solve many such problems and will provide diesel to bulk consumers in a legal manner. Furthermore, we have leveraged technology optimally to create a user-friendly app, by the name of Fuel Humsafar, that allows easy ordering and tracking of the invaluable fuel'', Nishit Goel Founder- Director of Humsafar India
