“SkyBitz’s comprehensive SMARTruck automation system provided us with forecasting via remote monitors and degree day, paperless dispatching and integration with our back-office accounting. We saw our margins and gallons increase. Everything began to run more efficiently and effectively for us, giving us time to look for more opportunities to further increase those gallons.”
Chief Operating Officer

“We started from an almost completely manual process of dispatching and data collection. Poor penmanship and math errors have been eliminated so the data integrity sent to billing is much better. SMARTruck saves us about 25 minutes per driver, meaning 1 more delivery for every 3 trucks.”
What is petroleum dispatch and delivery software?
Dispatch and delivery software can help petroleum marketers reduce inefficiencies and automate their operations using accurate data and forecasting models. The software is usually an enterprise system that taps into tank levels, driver performance, customer and accounting modules, and product inventory.
The platform pulls information from various hardware installed in tanks and trucks, such as digital registers and remote tank monitoring sensors that report location, level, and other metrics.
How does digital logistics help fuel marketers to improve cash flow?
With a digital logistics platform, you can access monitoring data to avoid emergency site visits and eliminate onboard retains, all through one application. Your team can eliminate the cost of manual transactions, by digitizing the order and delivery process, improving communication with customers as to the status of a delivery.
This will decrease your DSO and increase customer satisfaction. Accessing operational data in one place allows you to be better prepared to calculate pricing, share captured service fees, obtain proof of delivery, and provide detailed truck and driver data when necessary.
Is dispatch optimization achievable in the petroleum distribution space?
Petroleum dispatch and delivery solutions allow fuel marketers to accurately automate their entire distribution operation and generate real-time assessments based on customer needs.
Having access to all product data, dispatch operations, and customer usage and billing data allows you to improve your forecasting and routing density to deliver more volume with fewer trips.
How do fuel marketers automate orders and billing processes?
Setting up tank level readings is the first step in understanding how to forecast customer demand. Next, match E-BOL’s to driver BOL data to auto approve and reconcile against full transport drops or multitudes of metered totalizer readings, to leave real-time priced tickets, auto email tickets or post to a customer portal.
SkyBitz also integrates with 3rd party accounting software, so all customer requirements, assets, notes, tank inspections, and priced tickets are managed through one platform.
Finally, improve transparency between you and your customers by sending ETA order notifications, emailed or portal posted priced delivery tickets, and auto emailed specific reports.
Is it easy to track and monitor my trucks, drivers, and product inventory with one platform?
Fuel marketers designed SkyBitz software FOR fuel marketers, so our platform is scalable yet straightforward. An enterprise system has four key components: Forecasting and Scheduling, Route Optimization, Inventory and Route Reconciliation, and API Integrations to 3rd party applications, ie ERP’s.
For distributors across diversified verticals, an enterprise system captures the necessary information associated with all these business units and highlights them across different reporting modules for efficiency and growth.
What 3rd party apps integrate with petroleum dispatch and delivery systems?
SkyBitz operational logistics platform, SMARTLynx, streamlines communication between you and your partners so you can transition to a nearly paperless business environment.
In addition, our customer success teams ensure third-party integrations are seamless and have experience working with ERP providers including PDI, ADD Systems, Trinium Technologies, Aims, RAX, JD Edwards, and SAP, as well as data exchange with DTN, AXXIS, Comdata, Wex, and D1-Connect.
How do I prevent retains or over-servicing customers with fuel delivery management software?
Working with a provider that offers a comprehensive end-to-end dispatch and delivery solution ensures complete transparency between you and your customers, partners, and drivers.
GPS location and tank level data are then fed into degree-day algorithms and forecasting algorithms to show you which customers require service first and which can be scheduled later.
In addition, our petroleum dispatch optimization tools allow you to build and send more dense routes, which can communicate with onboard tablets or handheld devices with an optional digital register interface. The closest trucks with the right product, can now be re-routed to the clients in need, in near real-time.
How durable is the hardware used for petroleum tank monitoring?
Working with a reputable hardware provider is a massive differentiator as tank monitors and onboard hardware solutions need to be reliable and configurable, or the ROI drops significantly. Three considerations for level monitors are the design of the hardware, battery life, and failure rate.
Battery life is critical as these units will need to last a long time, and they must be able to withstand harsh weather conditions, including extremely high and low temperatures, sun, water, and high winds.
What’s the difference between a basic and advanced plan when it comes to distribution management software?
Fuel marketers can start with basic monitoring packages that show the GPS location of your tanks or those of your customers along with level readings. You can still leave manually priced paper tickets, but the “action” then becomes a manual process, often riddled by poor penmanship, math problems, and pounds of paper waste.
Digitizing your petroleum distribution business from tank to billing eliminates human error and improves data integrity across your entire operation. This equates to more deliveries in less time thus maximizing products, trucks, drivers and margins.
How does the SkyBitz digital logistics platform differ from other providers?
Our comprehensive end-to-end digital logistics solution is the only platform developed by distributors for distributors, allowing you to see when a tank is low to when it’s reconciled and approved for invoicing, all in one platform.
Load and delivery data can be packaged together so your accounting teams can bill your customers before your drivers even leave the lot.
SkyBitz experienced onboarding teams provide all support necessary to manage the hardware installation through to the strategy of your distribution process, regardless of product type – fuels, lubricants, chemicals, oils, water, and propane.
