When fuel is ordered the Seahawk dispatcher schedules delivery and provides order information to the assigned driver. The driver goes to a specified supply terminal, picks up the fuel and delivers it to the dealer location within 24 hours of the order.
The driver checks the fuel level in the dealer’s tank to ensure that there is adequate space and also to determine if there is water in the tank upon arrival. Then he hooks up the hose and drops the gas into the tank. After the fuel has been unloaded, the driver again checks the fuel level in the tank. Throughout the process, the driver takes every safety precaution. Once the delivery is complete, he provides the dealer with paperwork that specifies exactly what was included in the order.
Though the primary responsibility of Seahawk is safe and efficient delivery of fuel to our dealers, we also offer additional services.
- Many dealers choose Automated Tank Gauges (ATGs) that allow Seahawk to monitor dealer fuel usage and deliver fuel without a dealer ever making a phone call.
- For those without ATGs, dealers use Autosend to daily report fuel stick readings.
- For dealers who choose to maintain their own inventory, phone or fax orders are placed 24 hours before the fuel is needed.
