Andamur and Molgas present the first Network of Multi-Energy Service Stations

Andamur has signed an agreement with the company Molgas to set up a new company with the aim to build and operate this network of refuelling stations of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG), in addition to fuel. The new company is going to have a pioneering role responding to the demands of fleets of trucks and light vehicles that may refuel any kind of fuel at the so-called Multi-Energy Service Stations.

This new service will be provided as of the beginning of 2019 in the Service Areas located in La Junquera (Gerona), Guarromán (Jaén), Pamplona (Navarra) and San Román (Vitoria). More than 500,000 trucks are refuelled at our stations every day, and those companies may now include natural gas in their fleets, thus anticipating market trends and being able to obtain an increased competitive advantage.

Miguel Ángel López, Andamur CEO, has expressed his satisfaction with this agreement: “At Andamur, We look after what really matters, and with this initiative not only do we help clients to anticipate market trends, we also provide sustainable alternatives for light and heavy vehicles, promoting the reduction of CO2 emissions”.

In addition, he wanted to highlight the importance of collaborating with the company Molgas, “to achieve this, we have set up a partnership with Molgas, leading company in the natural gas market. Their deep knowledge in this field together with our experience in managing Service Areas and Services to Drivers are a perfect combination to be successful”.

These new refuelling plants will be built at the beginning of 2019.

All of Andamur stations have now the SGS Seal of Quality

As of today, all of Andamur stations have the SGS Seal of Quality, a certification ensuring consumers that the fuel they purchase complies with the highest quality standards. After the Andamur station in Lorca obtained this certification, the rest of our service stations in Spain have followed suit. Therefore, Andamur stations have become the only ones to have this certification in the provinces of Navarra, Alava, Almeria and Murcia.

 

The SGS Seal of Quality ensures that our fuel complies with the most demanding quality standards and that it is subject to initial audits and continual assessments to guarantee that such standards continue to be met over time.

 

Achieving this certification is part of our aim to stay at the forefront in terms of Quality standards. This was, indeed, one of the commitments we acquired last September when we became active members of the Spanish Association for Quality and fits within the creation of a Total Quality Management System Plan, that we are already working on.

We participate in Marketing Refresh Day 2018 to talk about Customer Experience

The concept of Customer Experience is increasing its relevance in companies. It is the combination of all interactions between a user and a brand throughout their relationship and once it is over. That is why implementing Customer Experience is becoming mandatory in all companies wishing to build robust and loyal relationships with their customers.

At Andamur, we have this concept constantly in mind, and this year we have worked on improving the Customer Experience process in all our products and services as much as possible. Miguel Ángel López, Andamur CEO, talked about this work and its implementation in the company at the 4th Meeting of Marketing and Communications managers and professionals, Marketing Refresh Day 2018. According to him, Andamur focuses most of its Customer Experience on professional truck drivers. In contrast to other companies, our brand “is a particular one since it is aimed at the end professional using our services, who is not necessarily the one paying for them. With this approach in mind, we have analysed all the times the user comes into contact with us and we have set improvements for each and every one of them.”

During his presentation, Andamur CEO also gave some details on specific actions that the company is going to carry out in the short term: “Even though we started as a petrol station, in these 30 years of experience, we have always adapted ourselves to the needs of truck drivers so that we could meet all of them. In our stations, we have set up restaurants, security car parks, hotels, supermarkets, showers, laundry rooms, etc. Now we want to take another step forward and become the first network of multi-energy service areas for trucks, something we will see very soon.

Marketing Refresh Day 2018 was held in the city of Murcia and gathered nearly twenty experts in marketing and communications in different conferences and round tables. They discussed the aspects that are changing the relationship between customers and brands in front of 140 people. Managers of brands such as Dulcesol, NH Hoteles, Noved Eventos and Ticbiomed, among other, addressed topics related to customers, contents and loyalty.

Andamur tips for successful maintenance of your truck tyres

The tyre is the only component of the vehicle in contact with the ground, being normally subjected to aggressive treatments. A key factor for the safety of users and of the goods we transport, you must optimize the inflation pressure to ensure a safe transport, saving fuel and increasing the tires life of your truck.

 

The tire pressure of your heavy vehicles also influences the consumption of fuel, so the pressures must always be adapted to the load and the type of use.

 

Regularly checks the tyres of your truck for possible damage. With the passage of time, the tire loses in a natural way the pressure, but its useful life might become also decreased by factors such as punctures, or a visible deformation in the tread, the sides or in the mortaring zone, as well as any type of deformation on the wheel rim.

In all regular controls you must also check the condition of the valve cap, replacing it if necessary.

 

Likewise, you must change the covers if show damage related to:

 

  • Deformed Guide
  • Separation of the layers
  • Deterioration by fatty or corrosive element
  • Marbled rubbers due to a shot with insufficient pressure in relation to the load

 

Factors that influence the life of the tyres

The tyres are composed of different types of materials and components based on the rubber, whose properties are essential for the proper functioning of the tire itself. These properties evolve with the passage of time, depending on its durability on factors such as:

Weather conditions

Storage Conditions: temperature, humidity and position.

Conditions of Use: type of load, driving habits, the inflation pressure or the state of the roads.

Balanced: A balanced tyre helps to prevent premature wear on the tires.

 

We must bear in mind that these factors, by themselves, do not allow us to know exactly the tire life, so in addition to the usual checks made by the user; it is recommended to perform regular checks on the tires by a qualified professional. These checks must be carried out at least once a year.

Proper tire maintenance is synonymous with safety and efficiency; in addition, you will increase its durability, improving profitability for your business.
