National network and fuel supply for the transport industry

At Certas Energy, we know from experience that keeping your fleet moving day and night is integral to your business and the customers you serve.

We aim to provide top quality haulage and HGV fuels right when you need them, so that your business keeps running the right way, always.

Fuelling your fleet is a daily priority when you’re working in the haulage sector.

Net Zero 2050 is becoming a reality as industries across the UK consider new, cleaner fuels. We’re here to help you make the move to diesel alternatives while balancing your bottom line and keeping your haulage business on the road all year round.

Shell GTL Fuel for the haulage and storage industry

Shell GTL Fuel (gas to liquid) is a cleaner burning and long-lasting fuel alternative to diesel. Reducing levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter (PM) Shell GTL Fuel is a drop-in solution designed for use in new and older vehicles, and can be easily added to HGV engines without causing disruption. As the haulage industry moves towards a future of fuel efficiency and more renewable fuels, Shell GTL Fuel is proving it has an essential role to play during the transition. 

HVO as a haulage industry fuel source

HVO, or hydrotreated vegetable oil, is another cleaner burning fuel solution with a long shelf life: properly sourced and verified HVO is made from 100% sustainable waste. It can help your haulage business cut carbon emissions by 90% and is fully compliant with EN15940 standards. As a drop-in paraffinic fuel, HVO is an easy solution to reducing vehicle produced pollutants. Certas Energy has introduced HVO to its own fleet, is able to provide significant volumes to the haulage sector, and has all the resources you need to support your business on the journey to net zero.

Safe, secure & regulated fuel tanks

We make it our priority to support customers in achieving safe fuel storage as standard. Our range of fuel storage tanks adhere to environmental guidelines, storage standards and manufacturing regulations. Certas Energy tanks can be either static or transportable and are compatible with telemetry systems to monitor fuel levels remotely and thereby tackle theft. Tanks are available in several sizes to match your transport fuel needs. Be sure to store your tank in the correct location to stay safe and compliant; you can read our guide to oil tank regulations for more advice. 

Fuel cards

As a fuel supplier with our own fleet and drivers to manage, we know that staying on top of spend can be time consuming. Certas Energy fuel cards provide fleet operators with full visibility of spend–and with over 3,000 UK locations, it’s easy for your fleet to refuel and keep moving. Using GPS technology and on-board diagnostics, our FuelTrace telemetry system works in parallel with our fuel cards, giving you real-time data relating to vehicle movements to help reduce costs, implement efficiencies and minimise the risk of fraud.

Haulage and storage fuel FAQs

For businesses with the capacity to store large quantities of fuel, Certas Energy can deliver in bulk quantities. With some cleaner fuels having a prolonged shelf life, ordering in bulk can help keep your operation on the go all year round, and choosing to order in bulk can result in considerable cost savings. 

Haulage vehicles are required to perform all year round, in any weather. Regular road use can be demanding on engines and vehicle parts, which is why lubricants can make all the difference to the function and lifespan of your fleet. Hydraulic oils, engine oils, greases and coolants help to maintain HGVs and deliver increased efficiency and improved output for optimum productivity.

We have 130 depots across the UK manned by our friendly, expert local teams. Our customers are based throughout the whole of the UK, from big cities to coastal towns and remote rural areas. With a fleet of 900 vehicles in various sizes, we are equipped to deal with all terrain and deliver fuels year-round, come rain or shine.

There are a number of new fuels that can help your haulage business reduce C02 emissions. Shell GTL Fuel is a gas-to-liquid oil that reduces levels of pollutants with no compromise on performance. Alternatively, hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) is a cleaner-burning, fully sustainable drop-in fuel that also offers a long shelf life. For heating purposes, Therma35 industrial heating oil (IHO) can be used for commercial purposes and, at time of writing, carries no fuel duty, which offers significant savings.

As with many fuels and oils, Shell GTL Fuel prices can fluctuate. External factors can cause prices to increase or decrease regularly, making it difficult to set a standardised cost for Shell GTL Fuel. To get the most up-to-date price when buying Shell GTL Fuel for your haulage business, please call Certas Energy on 0345 600 4040.
