WP Group still delivering without disruption

 27th Mar 2012

WP Group is proud to announce that in the moment of need we will be there to provide emergency deliveries to our customers.

WP Group Truck - Delivering Energy & Performance 01With the proposed fuel tanker strike likely to affect most of the country, WP Group would like to reassure their customers that they have no involvement in the strike action, and that it is pulling all the stops out to maintain a high level of service, ensuring that none of our customers will be left dry.

To demonstrate the level of care and commitment we have for our customers, extra emergency deliveries will be available to those in desperate need of supply, and our highly trained operations team have agreed to provide extra shifts to ensure all deliveries are completed on-time. 

The proposed strike is largely associated with forecourt-supplying haulage firms and not distributors. WP draws fuel directly from a number of sources rather than relying on supply, so it anticipates minimal disruption to service.

Russell Fairchild, Operations Director at WP Group, commented “Our operations team is well trained, dedicated and prepared for situations like this and we are determined to keep business in the south moving, keeping our customers working. After such a hard recession, WP wants to support the South’s businesses ensuring all deliveries are completed on time.”

WP have received a letter of apology from ITV in relation to the news bulletin on 26th March 10pm. WP wish to make it clear that they are not involved in the proposed strike action and will be supporting customers during this difficult period with additional deliveries.

The international news media Reuters Internation, also apologised for the error: "The report [on "UK Fuel Tanker Drivers Vote to Strike"] inadvertently used images of WP Group tankers. As WP Group says it is not involved in the proposed strike action, the report should not have used those images. We can confirm that the report has been withdrawn and Reuters regrets the error."

WP always prioritise existing loyal custmers but always look to provide a greater level of coverage in times of industry crisis. We will always go that extra mile to deliver to our customers even in times of strike action or bad weather. WP are here for you.
