Learn how the SAIM Inventory Module played a critical role in informing fuel storage and supply decisions as consumption halted due to COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused commercial airlines and airports to experience a sudden, significant drop in fuel consumption. The aviation fuel handling operator at one of America’s largest international airports went from 30,000 barrels of fuel consumption a day to 8,000. Changes needed to be implemented immediately to fuel receipt and storage protocols to avoid safety hazards and costly miscalculations.
The SAIM Inventory Module allows the operator to continuously monitor Days on Reserve to be in control of their supply chain and have foresight on the inventory versus the current demand. In crisis situations like the COVID-19 pandemic, SAIM provided the operator with real-time information to determine their total inventory accurately and nominate next fuel receipts on an as-needed basis.
The SAIM platform provides transparency for owners to access data remotely, no matter where they are in the world.
