PLAN – Make It Part of Your Supply Plan

Bottom Line: PLAN is a tool that works when winter demand is heating up!  Winter has arrived early in many parts of the country. As a reminder, it’s important for propane marketers to develop a supply plan in consultation with their suppliers and transporters to ensure smooth operations throughout the winter.

View and report wait times on NPGA’s Propane Logistics Analysis Network (PLAN) tool. As we transition into the heart of the heating season, remember that PLAN is a free tool to make your company more efficient. It allows your drivers to spend less time waiting in lines for fuel and more time delivering fuel to your bulk plants and customers. PLAN relies on you! Marketers, drivers, dispatchers, terminal managers, and wholesalers all play a part. It takes less than a minute to submit a wait time from your mobile device or desktop computer. Your use of PLAN will encourage others to use it too.

PLAN is available online at and through the NPGAction app. To get the NPGAction app, visit the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Please note PLAN does not represent supply levels, pricing, or other market variables, and may be subject to error. With your help and continued use, this tool will grow and provide timely information to the industry. Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
