Fuel Management Software

Our software tracks all movements and inventories throughout a deployed expeditionary fuel system in real time. It helps identify challenges to a steady supply chain. Tested and developed for Afghanistan, this robust software gives 360 degree visibility of any deployable modular supply chain. It can be deployed if you're doing a single module like Ship to Shore or Airborne, or a complex end-to-end operation. From a battlefield or an emergency situation, the modular software gives you insight on your deployed fueling operation.
