Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. began doorstep delivery of diesel for industrial and bulk customers in Noida on Wednesday. The company has started delivery of the fuel from Shaheed Ramendra Pratap Singh Petrol Pump at Sector-95 in Noida. This type of service is first in the Delhi-NCR region.
According to BPCL, this service will benefit housing society, malls, hospitals, banks, large transporters, construction sites, and small and big industries. The customers can book diesel through ‘Fil now’ app and get it at a given location.
At present, the industrial and bulk customers, who require the fuel, have to visit the nearest retail outlet to fill in containers/barrels. The new initiative aims to make the process convenient for people to get the oil delivered at their doorstep. The fuel delivery vehicle comes fitted with a mobile dispenser and a 4,000-litre fuel tank.
The service aims to ensure hassle-free supply of the fuel to end users and also avoid unnecessary fuel spillage, unsafe handling of fuel in containers/barrels and also pilferage.
Mr. Kirti kumar, Area Sales officer, BPCL Noida, stated that presently we are providing this facility to the industrial need like Mall, Small and heavy Manufacturing Industries ect. In future Government is planning to extend this facility to individual car owners. This initiative is unique in way that inspite customers take fuel from retail outlet in barrels and then transport it has safety issues. By this Bowser (door to door delivery vehicle) the safety aspect is take care. Further quality and quantity is also assured as we have fuel will be dispensed assuring correct quantity and right quantity directly from BPCL Pump. BOWSER has GEO fencing system which ensures that fuel will be delivered only at ordered locations. Hence no other fuel can be added or pilfered in between the transportation.
Booking through ‘Fil now’ app: The mobile application is available at Google Play and Apple’s App Store. Once a customer downloads this app, he can track the location. After that customer location will be connected to the company’s server. Once he places his order, the fuel would reach the concerned BPCL dealer with complete details of the customer (name, cellphone number, quantity required, address and time of delivery).
After receiving the receipt of the order from the customer, the mobile dispenser will reach the destination and the dispensing would commence through automation at the designated location (geo-fenced area). The fuel dispenser is equipped with fire extinguishers and safety cones among others for demarcation of the delivery area. Also, the customer gets a SMS alert before fuel dispenser reaches the given location.
Payment process is very simple: A customer can do it online as well as offline. He can pay through UPI, mobile wallet, Debit-Credit card, NEFT, RTGS etc. Finally, he gets a receipt after completion of the payment.
Noida is rapidly moving towards a global city. UP government policy is very supportive in direction of development. My effort is in the same direction. Mobile petrol pump save time and money of thousands of customers in Noida and Greater Noida.
