Commercial Fuel Depot


The Flagstaff Park Fuel Depot was constructed at the Flagstaff Park Industrial Precinct, which was
purchased in 2016 as a development site for large scale industrial uses. The land was rezoned and
Ingham’s Ltd purchased 7ha of the 54ha site and built a $65m chicken feedmill which opened in
January 2019, now producing up to 12,000 ton of chicken feed per week with 1,000+ truck
movements in and out of the factory each week.

The Flagstaff Park Fuel Depot is sited at the entrance to the feedmill and adjacent an internal road
which is under construction. The depot’s construction was completed in January 2020 and supports
the logistics companies servicing Ingham’s, neighbours to the South Big River Feeds / Big River Pork,
neighbours to the North Hampel Poultry and other local agricultural businesses that use the depot. A
new solar thermal farm and gas power station is planned for the Precinct development, in addition
to a new sawmill and pet food manufacturer in the process of relocating to Flagstaff Park, all
requiring substantial logistics support and therefore there is significant growth in fuel sales expected
in the medium term.

The Business:
The fully automated “unmanned fuel distribution facility” features two diesel pumps and one AdBlue
pump, with automated outdoor payment terminal (OPT) which is accessible via the Internet to view
sales data, update diesel and AdBlue pricing, run and export reports. The facility has 56,000L diesel
capacity and 7,000L AdBlue capacity. The design of the site accommodates road trains and trucks
with trailers, with high flow switches on the pumps allowing for fast filling of high quantities of

Also of note is the 4m fuel price sign, featuring 1,500mm x 500mm LED screen, which has a 3G
media system so can also be controlled via web with images, videos at excellent quality. These assets
were all purchased new.

The operations require no employees, with minimal accounting admin and adjustment of sale prices
occasionally. Three 4K security cameras and a video doorbell next to the payment terminal help
monitor the site and are all accessible via an app on your phone or computer and records footage to
the cloud. The doorbell can be rung if anyone needs help using the payment system, which rings on
your mobile.

A strong customer base has been established and sales volumes vary between 10,000L - 16,000L per
week, depending on activity levels at Inghams. This translates to around $150 to $1,000 gross profit
per week. The company has been receiving $3,000 from sales proceeds from Perry’s for the past
three months, which has been sustainable whilst retaining funds for the next load of fuel. Diesel
prices have remained fairly stable and demand from the Ingham’s trucks has been reliable and is
expected to increase in the near future, together with growing activity from new tenants at the
Industrial Precinct, the sales volumes are forecast to rise by 30%-100% over the next year. Refer to
the Sales & Marketing Report for precise sales data and analytics using Microsoft Power BI. Minimal
marketing expenses are needed as reporting sale prices to fuel price apps is free, however
advertising on Google and Facebook could expand customer base beyond the local market.
