‘Strategic Alliance to Market Propane to Fleets Across North America’

Mansfield Oil Company and Ferrellgas Partners have formed “a strategic alliance to market propane to fleets across North America.” The firms “are striving to meet the evolving needs of their customer base while offering Ferrellgas customers access to Mansfield’s added services including seamless invoicing, state-of-the-art reporting and a consolidated suite of energy solutions.”

FerrellGas+MansfieldThe idea is to provide “streamlined fuel management services to our customers who operate using multiple fuel platforms,” Ferrellgas autogas director Nathan Ediger says in a Mansfield release.

“Mansfield has long been recognized as the leader in this field,” Ediger says in the announcement. “We’re confident this relationship will greatly benefit our existing propane autogas customers and ease the entry of those fleets interested in utilizing this economical and clean-burning alternative fuel.”

It Goes Both Ways

Ediger told F&F that Ferrellgas will pick up for Mansfield when Mansfield customers need propane autogas and that, depending on location and existing accounts, in some cases Mansfield will handle the sales.

“Mansfield and Ferrellgas have aligned our service capabilities to offer a comprehensive suite of services for customers across the country who are interested in transitioning their fleets to alternative fuels,” Joe Campbell, senior operations VP at Mansfield, says in the release.

“Our marketing alliance presents a new set of tools to Mansfield and Ferrellgas customers, keeping both groups on the cutting edge of available services, technologies and products,” he said.
