Following more than two months of lockdown, we are now entering a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. As some restrictions are eased, we are beginning to see businesses adapt, operations restart and demand fluctuating. It is now more important than ever to make sure your supply chain is robust, and able to support these changes in demand.

Nearly all businesses are being challenged to work in a flexible way at the moment. We’re seeing some manufacturers, logistics companies and construction firms working around the clock to meet demand and keep their staff at safe working distances.
Minimising downtime is a key priority, and oil and lubricants will be essential for meeting changing demand and maximising efficiency. Bulk buying and storage capabilities can provide certainty of supply and are also a cost-effective way to manage your fuel. We also recommend fuel cards for firms that need their workers to top up regularly on-the-go, particularly for transportation.
With many businesses under pressure, keeping costs low is a priority. Our price risk management team is working closely with our customers to manage budgets with flexibility.
Lots of businesses are encouraged by current low oil prices, but demand is expected to increase as the industry picks up in the coming months and predicting the impact on oil prices is difficult. Working together with World Kinect Energy Services and our price risk management team, we are helping businesses plan for fluctuations in the market and shifts in demand whilst protecting their budget.
