With the objective of ensuring speedy supply of fuel to sustain operational tempo, IAF in collaboration with Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL)has introduced a ‘Fleet Card – Fuel on Move’ for its varied fleet of vehicles. Describing it as a leap forward in fuel supply chain management, officials said here this innovative initiative provides a paradigm shift to the logistics management of fuel.
Availability of ‘Fleet Card’ will permit the IAF convoy to refuel at any IOCL fuel stations, increasing the pace of movement and reducing the lead time for readiness at operational locations across the nation. Chief of IAF VR Chaudhari launched the scheme here on Monday at the Western Command. He complimented the team of the Command and the IOCL for this initiative that has enhanced the operational preparedness and capability of the IAF. Western Air Command was earmarked as lead agency for its implementation and execution.
