Are You Maximizing Profits from Fuel & Services?
In every local or regional market; today’s FBO industry is highly competitive. Most FBO owners agree that margins on fuel and services are one of the most critical elements that impact profitability. For many FBO owners and managers, its sometimes difficult to navigate the complex web of contract fuel providers, air carrier bids, DOD contracts, fuel associations, and ramp/handling fees. It’s hard to know if your pricing strategies for based and transient customers are effective and if you’ve set a fee structure that is consistent, profitable, and acceptable.
Its also important to assess if employees and managers are consistently deploying best practices when dealing with customers, ramp and counter interactions, tracking and payment systems, and overall safety.
