Get more margin and less risk

Keeping fuel costs within a predictable range protects you from unexpected changes in the price of fuel. Changes that could otherwise seriously impact your budget and profit margin.

Fixed price agreements

A fixed price agreement is a mutually binding contract designed to fix your fuel prices at any port of your choice, independent of future market movements.

Three good reasons to use this strategy:

  • Rising fuel prices would seriously undermine your business
  • Stabilise your business with a guaranteed fuel supply in the ports you specify at a fixed price
  • Focus on your core business - not on paper hedge issues

Benefits Disadvantages
Protection from price increases Opportunity loss if spot prices fall
100 % price certainty  
No basis and timing risk  
No settlement transaction  
Guaranteed fuel supply
