Fairbanks has implemented a range of wet-stock solutions in more than 1,500 Shell forecourts across 14 countries. Services include statistical inventory reconciliation, intelligent web reporting and real-time data collection and analysis using the Fairbanks ibank device.

Fairbanks has been rolling out wet-stock management solutions to the Shell network since September 2012, and will be providing its services to more than 3,000 sites across three continents when the scheme is fully implemented.

Wet-stock data is recorded and relayed to Fairbanks’ Lancashire offices where a team of analysts use their software systems to identify and resolve issues such as underground pipe and tank leaks, pump faults and fuel theft.

Fairbanks’ web-based reporting tools also give Shell management access to data, allowing their retailers to focus on their customers knowing their wet-stock data is under control.

Steve Jones, Fairbanks’ managing director, said: "We have put together a specialist team to oversee the roll-out of this project. There is no doubt that this has been a significant undertaking for the Fairbanks team, and I am very pleased that we have risen to the challenge."
