Hedging your fuel risk exposure

Fuel hedging - or fuel risk management - is what we do - it is part of our DNA

Fuel hedging is used to reduce or eliminate a company's exposure to fluctuating fuel costs. It is a contractual tool allowing a company to fix or cap a fuel price at a certain level and period of time.

Fuel hedging - why use it?

If your company is exposed to oil price fluctuation, fuel hedging is a tool that can help eliminate the risk of your fuel budget getting out of control. Here is a few examples of why to hedge:

  • Fuel oil prices fluctuate - the oil market is extremely volatile
  • Fuel oil expenses represent a large fraction of the operational costs
  • Insurance against price fluctuations
  • Pro-active strategy for budget protection
