There is no gainsaying the fact that the current economic recession represents a perfect storm for the average Businessman. The depreciation of the Naira against the USD ,the non-availability of Power, the high cost of fuel all contribute to the excessive increase in CAPEX leading to the current nightmare being faced by both Industrialists and Entrepreneurs alike.
The purpose of this Article is basically to introduce how efficient fuel use and monitoring can actually reduce your CAPEX thus increasing your bottom line and reason for being in business….profit.
Fuel has been said to be attributable to 20% of your CAPEX, this is as a result of the inadequate and flippant supply of electricity. Businesses are therefore being run on Generators and this consumes fuel.
The question that every Manufacturer, Industrialists and Businessman should therefore be asking themselves is “Where is my Fuel”?
There is a need to monitor your fuel from the delivery point through to consumption and account for every drop or litre used? Am I saying the Chief Executive or a Manger should stand by the Fuel Tank and watch the fuel drop, NO?
Maybe your Company has a dedicated person whose responsibilities amongst other thing include the receipt and monitoring of fuel? This may be a good idea but 7/10 cases of fuel pilfering or mismanagement have identified that such persons also collaborate with the miscreants.
You then ask yourself, how can I keep an eye on my fuelling operation with minimal or no intrusion and ensure that my fuel is being used for what I paid for?
