Increasing market volatility and the continually weak economy have marketers actively seeking new ways to fuel their efficiencies and profitability. These goals can be achieved by streamlining and automating transactions, as well as speeding up billing processes. One way to do both is through electronic bills of lading (eBOLs).

The availability of eBOL data has more than tripled over the past few years, and it is often accessible within minutes of a load being loaded at the terminal. Due to this, more and more fuel marketers are requesting back office software providers to support eBOL integration.

However, one of the biggest problems marketers have is getting those eBOLs — which come from a variety of sources, in different formats with different supplier, terminal, product, and carrier codes — into their back office systems in the required format.

  2. 2. DTN Fuel Admin™ Increasing market volatility and the continually weak economy have marketers actively seeking new ways to fuel their efficiencies and profitability. These goals can be achieved by streamlining and automating transactions, as well as speeding up billing processes. One way to do both is through electronic bills of lading (eBOLs). DTN Fuel Admin provides a unique dashboard view for managing all supplier mapping codes, quickly and easily. The availability of eBOL data has more than tripled over the past few years, and it is often accessible within minutes of a load being loaded at the terminal. Due to this, more and more fuel marketers are requesting back office software providers to support eBOL integration. However, one of the biggest problems marketers have is getting those eBOLs — which come from a variety of sources, in different formats with different supplier, terminal, product, and carrier codes — into their back office systems in the required format. Introducing DTN Fuel Admin To meet demand and to help fuel marketers improve transactions, speed billing, and protect profits, Schneider Electric created DTN Fuel Admin. It provides a unique dashboard view for managing all supplier mapping codes, quickly and easily — even as seasonal product changes hit the market and new suppliers come on board. How it works DTN Fuel Admin solves the problem by formatting and cross referencing bills of lading (BOLs) that can be exported into the user’s back office without further translation. It does so by creating coding consistency for BOLs from a variety of sources and in different formats — including supplier, terminal, product, and carrier codes. DTN Fuel Admin gathers BOLs from Schneider Electric’s BOL repository, and delivers the fastest available BOL. The BOL is cross referenced to match back office codes. It leverages the user’s cross reference setup for price exports to jump start back office integration and to speed implementation. DTN Fuel Admin then serves the fastest BOL, while eliminating duplicates. It also provides users with an electronic, easy-to-read smart text BOL.

  3. 3. Fueling profitability DTN Fuel Admin will enable most marketers to save thousands of dollars in upfront costs, and substantially reduce the ongoing maintenance of mapping data. With it, marketers can benefit from… • The fastest electronic BOLs — without duplicates • An easy-to-read smart text version of each DTN Fuel Admin BOL — including original, standard Schneider Electric, and customer cross-referenced codes • The ability to custom cross reference codes and build specific exceptionsbased business rules How do I start? Schneider Electric can run simple analysis reports that let you know where BOLs could be available for you — often with 100 percent coverage. The company provides you with an initial report, then you verify the suggested supplier/terminal combinations (based on where you receive prices). You simply confirm, add or delete combinations; then Schneider Electric delivers a complete analysis of your BOL availability. Why Schneider Electric? As the leading provider of lifting authorizations at the terminal and the primary source of BOL interchange between suppliers, exchange partners, and terminals, Schneider Electric is the industry’s broadest source of BOLs, and a significant amount of them are close to real time. And as the industry expert in standardizing pricing information, more fuel professionals rely on Schneider Electric to cross reference export prices into their back offices than any other provider. The company leverages the same expertise to standardize BOL data across the industry. This enables customers to quickly leverage their initial price cross references to further ensure that their prices match their BOL data — protecting their profitability. DTN Fuel Admin | 03
