GREEN BAY, Wis., Aug. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Breakthrough Fuel has reached a major milestone by surpassing a billion gallons of fuel managed for its clients since the company was formed in 2004. "That translates into saving our clients more than $244 million in fuel costs," said Craig Dickman, Breakthrough Fuel CEO and Chief Innovation Officer. "It's a milestone that's significant for our clients as well as for us.  It proves that you can manage energy costs, making it easier to accurately forecast and budget. This was unheard of just ten years ago."

Breakthrough Fuel is an industry-leading supply chain management and advisory firm, with patented processes, that help shippers better understand and manage transportation energy lifecycles and costs. The firm helps its clients identify and analyze its fuel costs and then seeks ways to reduce costs with suppliers.  Breakthrough Fuel also evaluates the potential use of alternative fuels such as compressed natural gas (CNG) to reduce costs. 

"Because what we're doing hadn't been done before, our clients had to trust that our process regarding fuel management would work," Dickman explained.  "The proof it works is in our clients' bottom line; they see the savings each and every day.  Effective fuel management is one of the greatest opportunities for companies to strengthen their supply chain and competitive market position."  Breakthrough Fuel's client list includes companies such as Georgia-Pacific, Procter & Gamble, John Deere, Ace Hardware, Whirlpool Corporation, and Shopko.

Dickman credits a dedicated, experienced and innovative team for making Breakthrough Fuel successful.  "I have to thank our entire team at Breakthrough for making this achievement possible and creating solid relationships and trust with our clients.  We look forward to continuing to grow and help our clients succeed."
