Fleets providing essential services drive more than 70 percent increase in business for top on-demand mobile fueler
SAN MATEO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 22, 2020 / Booster, the #1 same-day fuel delivery service, announces the additions of Bobby Greene and Joe Levey, two established fleet and logistics management experts, to support its rapidly-growing fleet business line. Bobby Greene joins as Senior Director of Fleet and Equipment from Pilot Thomas Logistics. Joe Levey has been named Pacific Northwest Regional Operations Director and comes to Booster from DHL.
The two senior fleet positions were added in response to growing customer demand for Booster's contactless mobile fueling services since the onset of the pandemic. Since March 2020, Booster has seen an increase of more than 70 percent in weekly gallons delivered, including from essential fleets such as the San Mateo Fire Department, UPS, and Traffic Management International.
"The surge in business is due primarily to an increase in fleets providing essential services during the pandemic," said Tyler Raugh, Co-founder and President of Fleet, Booster. "Customers recognize now more than ever that mobile fueling onsite saves valuable delivery time and related costs. Our new executives will help ensure this growing service continues to reach our customers around the clock."
As Senior Director of Fleet and Equipment, Greene is responsible for every aspect of Booster's ‘rolling stock.' He will specify the new procurement of Booster mobile tankers and track the entire lifecycle of the equipment. At Pilot Thomas, Greene directed the total scope of fleet maintenance for 2300 vehicles.
"I am excited to support Booster's expanding fleet business - from leading the growth of maintenance programs to supporting the design of the next-generation Booster mobile tanker," Greene said. "Safety and environmental stewardship are guiding principles as we create our newest versions of mobile gas stations on wheels."
Joe Levey joins Booster as Regional Operations Director for the Pacific Northwest, responsible for meeting and exceeding customer expectations in the San Francisco Bay, Sacramento, Seattle, and Oregon areas. Levey became familiar with Booster fleet services when he was working at DHL as a senior manager of operations in the Bay Area.
"As any fleet operator can tell you, keeping your fleets fueled is a massive headache," said Levey. "I immediately recognized how Booster's services could drive efficiencies while reducing emissions and related costs. Our customers expect their vehicles to be prepared to go each morning, which means our tankers need to be constantly at the ready to meet this critical need."
