Centeron OptiFill™

An Innovative Approach to Liquid Product Scheduling

In today’s demand-driven distribution chain, you need to manage many challenges. First and foremost, you must ensure that your tanks are stocked. However, you also need to control your transportation-related expenses. Not only your own fuel costs, but the labor dollars spent making deliveries and to repair the wear and tear on your trucks — both of which can impact your bottom line. What’s more, run outs can cost you business.

How it Works

Centeron OptiFill helps you expand the power of your remote tank monitoring solution. It collects your tank level data from Centeron WebView™ and applies a series of advanced algorithms to automatically determine which of your locations need to be filled now, and which ones can wait until later.

When you use Centeron OptiFill to schedule deliveries, you can eliminate “top offs” and achieve maximum fills — substantially increasing your delivery capacity. With this improved efficiency you can even add new customers without having to employ additional trucks and drivers.

By eliminating inefficient manual order creation and scheduling, Centeron OptiFill can also reduce the amount of time a dispatcher must spend in order to establish your delivery schedules. When special circumstances or last-minute orders arise, you can easily make manual adjustments as needed.

With Centeron Optifill You Can:

  • Cut delivery and equipment costs
  • Minimize miles driven and shorten your delivery times
  • Lessen wear and tear on vehicles
  • Boost revenues
  • Free up capacity

Customize and configure conditions for what order to fill based on Centeron WebView data

Manage scheduled orders by site and product
