Based on information provided by fuel retailers who have shifted from a decentralized to a centralized pricing model, this white paper presents examples of:

  1. Problems created by decentralization
  2. Catalysts for centralizing fuel pricing
  3. Challenges associated with moving to a centralized model
  4. Benefits of centralization
  5. Requirements for a successful centralization project
