Introduction

OnSite Refuelling is a fuel refilling company founded in 2008 by Mr Adeola Ogunsina(me) along with my wife Georgia Ogunsina, with the vision to offer the services of fuelling the trucks when they are not in use or off-station.

Over the period of time, the company has improved its operational line and included technology into the functions to manage and also synchronize its offerings with the current market secretion. In doing so, it has incorporated the computer systems within the fuelling truck to offer an easy management of the fuelling data to the customers, offering additional services to customers to manage their operational cost and streamline the functions.

It has also given the rise to streamline the operation more strategically, in order to sustain the operations in the long run...........................
