Advanced Technology

With our advanced fueling event technology, we are able to track everything about a fueling event in real-time right from our headquarters, which provides ultimate accountability to our customers.

All McAlister trucks are equipped with onboard computers that are associated with the identity of the truck and driver. The computer data provides a GPS location of the truck, the time and date of delivery and the amount of fuel that was delivered as well as other critical information. Our customers are able to access and utilize the data to improve their processes and increase efficiency.
