You need firm control to protect your business in this fast-moving age of supply constraints, higher cost of product, and retailer consolidation and bankruptcies. Imagine how much time and money you could save if you could deny credit or adjust allocation limits with just a few keystrokes on a computer, instead of having to call all the terminals you work with.

DTN TABS helps you manage credit limits and product allocations for customers and trading partners at proprietary and third-party terminals. In addition, you can quickly and easily receive real-time loading data from the terminal to anticipate product demand and manage inventory as well as prioritizing volume for yourself and your top customers.

The DTN TABS protocol was developed by industry majors and is supported by more than 95 percent of the terminal automation systems on the market. Product enhancements based on customer requests translate into real dollars saved by fuel suppliers and their partners; along with petroleum rack marketers re-selling product at the rack that need to manage customers purchasing fuel from their accounts with other suppliers.
