    New Delhi: Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) along with Humsafar India- a Delhi headquartered start-up today launched doorstep delivery of diesel in 20 liters’ jerrycans titled ‘Safar20’   in the National Capital Delhi for the  customers seeking diesel in quantities as low as 20ltrs.

    “This 20 liters’  jerrycan diesel at doorstep service launched in the national capital   will benefit small housing societies, malls, hospitals, banks, construction sites, farmers, mobile towers, education institutes along small industries.’ Said Mr Pankaj Motiramani, State head for Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand while launching the service.

    “After catering to bulk supply customers through diesel door delivery, the wave of home delivery offering convenience in small quantities of 20 litres in Jerry cans will be a hit among small requirement customers. The shift from having to go to an outlet carrying a 20 litre jerry can against having one delivered at your doorstep is bound to be a success.” Said Mr Motiramani.

    “This jerry can  service aims to ensure a hassle-free supply of the fuel directly to end-users and also avoid unnecessary fuel spillage, unsafe handling, and/or pilferages. The Jerry Can is PESO approved and comes sealed with a seven-wire seal, having a unique number.  Hence, no adulteration and pilferage in between transportation can exist” he added.

    “BPCL plans to launch this 20 litre jerrycan service in the hill states of Himachl Pradesh and Uttarakhand as most of resorts hotels, industries and farms are in remote areas and this service which can be delivered on a motorcycle also will be of great help to these tourist states” said Mr Motiramani

    “Doorstep diesel delivery is a new revolution in the field of energy distribution in Delhi  and adjoining areas which will help easing the lives of the end-consumers without the usual hassles of diesel procurement. Doorstep diesel delivery is approved by the government and is a new-age concept of effective distribution of diesel. It allows fuel start-ups to maintain quality and create availability of fuel for the consumers.” said Ms  Sanya Goel, Founder and director of Humsafar India.

    “Earlier, the consumers of diesel had to procure it from retail outlets in barrels which used to cause a lot of spillage and dead mileage in energy procurement. Efficient energy distribution infrastructure was lacking. Doorstep diesel delivery will solve many such problems and will provide diesel to bulk consumers in a legal manner. Further more, we have leveraged technology optimally to create a user friendly app, by the name of Fuel Humsafar, that allows easy ordering and tracking of the invaluable fuel.” She said,

The mobile fuel dispenser will remain locked till it reaches the destination ensuring there is no wastage or pilferage,” said Mr Manas Goel, Head of the Bharat Petroleum Fuel Pump where the service was launched .
