We have big news to share! We've expanded operations to bring our contactless fuel delivery service our nation's capital. A coast-to-coast operation, Booster's same-day service is now in 50+ markets across the USA.
Our timely D.C. expansion comes as essential services experience a significant increase in the need for contactless, clean mobile fuel on-demand (MFOD) to meet pandemic requests. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've 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, Booster's Founder and CEO. “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.”
D.C. is the most recent government, joining state governments in Maryland, Texas, and Washington, to permit MFOD this year and rethink the innovative role it plays in the future of cities. MFOD helps cities eliminate the need to plan for gas stations and the environmental hazards and road congestion they bring. Each fuel delivery (a.k.a. each "boost") is more environmentally friendly than conventional fueling, reducing vehicle miles traveled and the associated CO2 emissions. Additionally, MFOD allows for a more nimble approach to the fuel supply chain, eliminating underground fuel storage tanks and their threat to water supplies in our communities.
With six local employees, we've begun servicing new, local customers including Falcon Transport, Dutch Mill Catering, Reston Limousine, and Shorb Landscaping.
“We’re proud to support essential services and create good jobs by bringing contactless fueling to D.C and Maryland,” said Jordan Valdés, Booster’s D.C.-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.”
