Let us travel back in time when hunger pangs hit at an inconvenient hour of the night and you are out of food. The worst part is that you have to go out and buy food for yourself to fulfil such sudden cravings. Next, the fashionable clothing you’ve been eyeing for a while has sold out at the outlet, and you’re stuck waiting for them to restock. The long-out-of-reach medicine is now available in a brick-and-mortar pharmacy, that too at a place far from vicinity .
Now cut to reality, all of these items are brought right to your door, and for that, all you have to do is pull out your phone and make an order. Whatever you desire, from groceries to luxury, can now be purchased via an app and delivered to your doorstep in a matter of a few days.
Even for the most basic needs, we turn to technology and get the job done from the comforts of our home. Do we include fuel in our definition of the most basic necessities? Have we considered online diesel delivery? It is easy for private vehicles to drive to fuel stations, however, procurement managers of industries still have to depend on unorganised means of getting diesel from retail petrol pumps. Fetching fuel in jerry cans and barrels may lead to leakage, raising suspicion on the quality and amount of diesel eventually leading to waste. To eliminate such hassles, an online fuel delivery system is a need of the hour.
We know diesel is the source of energy which ensures all other processes continue to function without interruption. The amount of fuel required for a population of 1.36 billion people is expected to grow due to the demand in the transportation, residential, and industrial sectors.
The Indian population is expected to grow to 1.64 billion by 2050. According to the market study done by OPEC, India’s reliance on fuel would stretch another quarter-century, with consumption estimated to climb to 11 million barrels per day by 2045. Currently, we don’t have the required infrastructure and retail outlets to cater this humongous demand. Furthermore, the procurement process for fuel is not up to standard.
Several industries like manufacturing, mining, hospitality, real estate, infrastructure etc. rely on diesel to operate their equipment, but the purchase is unorganised, carried out in jerry tanks or barrels. These tanks may contaminate and degrade the quality of the fuel with no guarantee on the amount received, adding to the loss that may occur because of spillage or theft.
When the entire world is functioning on technology, why is the procurement of fuel-dependent on human power? Why can’t we think of online fuel delivery in this era? Repos transfers the whole process of fuel procurement to an IoT-based e-commerce platform. Diesel is supplied to industrial and commercial clients immediately after an order is made via an app. Repos Mobile Petrol Pump arrives right at your doorstep to fulfil your fuel needs anytime and anywhere, all while giving you assured quality and quantity.
Besides convenience and loss of quantity due to spillage and theft, Repos’ doorstep delivery with Model Beta will also help reduce the country’s present problem, carbon emissions. In the next 6 years Doorstep Diesel Delivery can save 3619 crore kg of carbon emissions which is equivalent to planting 172 crore trees which covers an area equivalent to16 Mumbais.
Before we wind up
Repos believes that mobile energy distribution is the new frontier, and that placing conventional petrol pumps on wheels is the first step towards an energy-efficient and carbon-light future. The Repos Energy app allows fuel orders to be placed through an app that will now be dispensed at the customer’s doorstep making the entire procurement procedure hassle free.
We aspire to develop an efficient fuel distribution network that begins with diesel and later extends to clean fuels such as LNG, CNG, LPG, and even electric batteries.
