Circle K has announced they have started hauling fuel to their European locations with an in-house dedicated fleet of transport trucks. The operation, which began first in Sweden with seven Volvo trucks and 25 employees, will offer fuel deliveries to Circle K and Ingo stations. Circle K hopes to have 28 trucks on the road with coverage to the whole of Sweden by May 2022.
The plan is to build on the company’s U.S. success model and continue to expand across Europe to achieve a strategic competitive advantage. Expansion to the Baltics will be next, with deliveries starting in September. The company reports Baltic service will come from a fleet of approximately 30 trucks and a staff of close to 100 persons.
“This step embodies our vision, and commitment, to be famous for fuels and provide unrivalled customer service to our esteemed customers. A big shoutout to the extended European team, who worked tirelessly through the difficult Covid times to produce a meticulous launch on time and with splendid quality,” says Junaid Shah, head of European supply and distribution, Circle K.
