2013 Associate Sponsor:

Portland-Generic-MUST-USE-TPortland Fuel Price Protection is a specialist oil trading company bringing fuel price stability to businesses of all sizes.  Fuel price protection, or hedging, is no longer the preserve of major airlines and multinationals.

Based in the historic city of York, Portland’s fuel experts have many years’ experience in all aspects of fuel supply, and have bought, sold, transported, stored and traded fuel for the majority (and in some cases all) of their careers.  Unlike many so called experts, we aim to break down the ‘smoke and mirrors’ reputation that clouds the oil industry because we believe that for our customers to be truly satisfied, they must first understand the products we offer.  Face to face meetings and a team that is available to answer questions are essential elements of our success.

In addition to stabilising fuel costs, Portland are able to assist your normal fuel buying activities.  Whether you require fuel market information, fuel buying training or a full audit of your current fuel purchase methods, Portland has the solution.
