Refined Fuels Demand

Better decision-making begins with better demand intelligence

You know how much product you move with data from your internal inventory management, but that doesn’t give you the overall market demand and volume data. Refined Fuels Demand gives you that context.

Historically, the transparency, accuracy, and relevancy of demand data have been hampered by sampling limitations, participant bias, unreported or missed values, and recording errors. Refined Fuels Demand solves these problems by electronically measuring the flow of actual transaction activity generated daily by the industry.
