Labat Africa Group > Force Fuel

About Us

Established in 1994, Force Fuel, is a 100% Black Owned Company, with more than 50% Black Female Ownership. Force Fuel operates under a licence from the South African Department of Energy, which gives the company the mandate to collect all  types of fuel direct from refineries and depots of the leading oil majors (Sasol, Shell, Total, BP) and sell it on to commercial clients.

Force Fuel supplies and distributes bulk petroleum products to fuel retailers, agri-industry and other bulk buyers. The company specialises in collecting fuel in bulk, breaking it into smaller quantities and delivering it primarily to small and mid-size transporters. Its notable client list includes, Bogdans Bulk Transporters, Elf Dry Bulk Carriers, Rabali Transporters, Zalawi Transporters, Fidelity Security Group and Redefine Properties.

Currently, Force Fuel operates a fleet of 18 trucks which includes a combination of tankers which have the capacity to deliver 1 million litres of fuel per day. Following the company’s acquisition by Labat, all staff and management opted to remain in the employ of the company, with the result that the acquisition caused no significant changes to the management and operational structures within Force Fuel.
