Trading and Risk Management

Airlines, Railroads, Shippers, and Truckers are exposed to large fuel price swings that can have a dramatic impact on the bottom line. Since all fuel price increases can’t be passed through to customers, the transportation firm that best manages price risk will gain competitive advantage.

Hedging the price risk of fuel is a key to profitable operations. Transportation companies wishing to succeed must have sophisticated energy trading and risk management (ETRM) systems in place that not only transact and capture data in real time, but that also provide critical business intelligence and analysis information to make optimal decisions around hedging, position management, and physical logistics.
