SAN MATEO, Calif. — Booster, a same-day fuel delivery service, has expanded to Washington, D.C. The expansion comes amid an increase in the need for contactless, clean mobile fuel on-demand (MFOD) to meet requests during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since the start of the pandemic, Booster has experienced a 25% surge in fuel delivered to essential services, such as parcel delivery and logistics, food delivery and distribution, construction and cleaning companies.
“We are thrilled to establish an East Coast presence and launch operations in our nation’s capital,” said Frank Mycroft, founder and CEO of Booster Fuels. “Given today’s state of affairs, mobile fuel on-demand has become even more essential for getting goods into the hands of people who need them most.”
Washington is the most recent government permitting mobile fueling as the service expands. Earlier this year, mobile fueling permits and ordinances were passed by state governments in Maryland, Texas and Washington.
Booster has been working with local regulators and fire departments to provide its mobile fueling service. The company has secured all the required permits and regulatory licenses to deliver gas and diesel in Washington and Maryland.
Booster launches in Washington with several new, local customers including Falcon Transport, Dutch Mill Catering, Reston Limousine and Shorb Landscaping. With six local Booster employees, this office marks the company’s seventh major market following recent expansion to Dallas, Austin, Nashville, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle. In total, Booster has received permits to operate in more than 50 cities or counties across the United States.
“We’re proud to support essential services and create good jobs by bringing contactless fueling to D.C and Maryland,” said Jordan Valdes, Booster’s Washington-based director of public affairs. “Our trained service professionals are committed to a level of service, safety and transparency that sets a new standard in gas and diesel delivery.”
Booster’s fleet is made up of proprietary carbon-neutral purple mini tankers. Each mini-tanker fits in a regular-sized parking space and provides 100% contactless service. To date, the company has delivered more than 30 million gallons of fuel and works with more than 500 fleet customers nationwide.
