Ben E Keith Foods has chosen FuelQuest Inc to optimize its fuel purchasing processes. With a fleet of more than 650 vehicles, Fort Worth TX-based Ben E Keith required a proven system to implement best practices in its fuel purchases.

John Fershtand, director of fleet operations for Ben E Keith, said that what began as a discussion topic on best practices at UniPro — a purchasing consortium of food distributors — quickly evolved into a relationship with FuelQuest. Once FuelQuest was engaged, the process was up and running in just two weeks.

With FuelDesk in place, Ben E Keith will:

  • Centralize and aggregate its fuel spending.

  • Reduce exposure to fuel supply and price volatility.

  • Increase transparency with fuel purchase, transport, and taxes.
