Nothing affects the profitability of a petroleum fuels supplier more than pricing decisions. Small changes can greatly impact tight margins already squeezed by surplus capacity and intraday price volatility. Real-time data and decision support tools are critical to staying ahead of the curve. To optimize margins and sales, it’s essential to have the ability to execute and publish price decisions multiple times a day.

Schneider Electric is the dominant provider of information technology solutions and aggregated decision support data for the refined fuels supply chain in North America and Latin America. Because fuel suppliers depend on fresh, actionable information, we identify the highest quality, most valuable data from hundreds of sources and stream the results to thousands of customers. They depend on that data to enhance their operations and improve margins.

DTN Fuel Seller does the pricing homework for you. It watches a steady onslaught of real-time market data, seeking pricing opportunities based on rules you define. You automatically receive pricing proposals for review when market scenarios meeting your criteria occur. DTN Fuel Seller provides an uninterrupted
pricing focus to identify every incremental pricing improvement possible.

Once your pricing decisions are made, DTN Fuel Seller then makes it easy to directly publish prices, as often as needed throughout the day, to your authorized customers.

  3. 3. Your Data, Your Way From a single screen, the DTN Fuel Seller dashboard provides a continuously updated summary of market activity. Gain an overall understanding of trends based on a broad, clear view of indicators such as intraday rack prices, news, futures and spot prices. When something catches your attention, you can obtain further data using the terminal detail screen. Make decisions based on far more information than ever before by comparing real-time specifics like competitor rack prices displayed next to differentials to your prices. For more information to fortify your decisions, flip to more granular data such as core pricing metrics (current and rolling seven- or 30-day averages), realtime sales, variance to target strategy, margins and rack rank. Take the data a step further with custom terminal and product groupings. For example, monitor only the performance of terminals fed by a specific pipeline or located in a certain region. Apply filters to focus on attributes within groups, such as specific strategies or base/spread/cross terminal prices. User specific groupings also allow analysts to replicate their individual price decision workflow to follow the terminal/product order at which they set prices. Develop Pricing Decisions with Confidence Based on the knowledge you gain from the realtime data, you can arm the system with strategies that work in the background, leveraging that data to propose price changes. Weave strategies of any complexity to automate generation of initial proposed prices, such as: • ase, spread or cross-terminal product B strategy types Use the pricing console to execute price decisions as quickly and frequently as needed. Apply changes based on predefined pricing groups or filters identifying a specific interest area.
