Customer case study

Hemisphere gives its FLTs the Flogas treatment

Bulk LPG solution breaks dependence on costly cylinders

Hemisphere has been in the freight forwarding industry for 27 years, with offices in Ipswich, Heathrow and the Far East. It uses Fork Lift Trucks (FLTs) to carry 450-500 tonnes daily across a six to seven hour operating period.

Until recently, Hemisphere had an LPG cylinder deal with one of our competitors, which was expensive, and the risk of running out of gas was high. Flogas recommended replacing the cylinders with a cost-effective and reliable bulk LPG supply set-up.

Results

  • 20-25% savings
  • No risk of running out of fuel

I’d have no problem recommending Flogas. They think about our business, not just their own, and our relationship is a partnership, rather than having a customer / supplier dynamic. They’re everything you need your LPG supplier to be.

Service excellence delivers complete peace of mind

Hemisphere Freight’s General Manager Richard Davies says: “We weren’t happy with our previous LPG supplier. They were expensive, we regularly risked running out of gas, and it seemed as if they just didn’t care about us, as a business.

“Flogas on the other hand, see the bigger picture. It’s good to have a supplier on board that you can trust, as it allows you to just forget about it, and get on with the rest of your job.”

Flogas Service Excellence

By taking the time to understand the way Hemisphere operates as a business, and the individual needs of its busy FLT fleet, we were able to provide a lower-cost, lower-maintenance LPG solution that really works for them.

Delivery assurance and uninterrupted supply

After visiting the site, Flogas recommended the installation of two bulk tanks to fuel the FLT fleet instead of cylinders. Bulk tanks reduce LPG costs significantly, giving a saving of 20-25% over the cylinders.

Additionally, running out of gas became a thing of the past as Flogas bulk tanks have full telemetry. This means as soon as levels hit 40%, it triggers a delivery, ensuring Hemisphere never runs out.
