What’s Your PLAN?

As the industry transitions into the fall harvest and the start of the heating season, remember NPGA’s Propane Logistics Analysis Network (PLAN) — a free tool to make your company more efficient. PLAN allows your drivers to spend less time waiting in line for propane and more time delivering propane to your bulk plants and your customers.

PLAN relies on you! Remind your drivers that reporting a wait time is more helpful than just viewing a wait time, as these submissions can show which terminals are experiencing delays and which ones are not. 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 an update to 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. Questions? Please contact [email protected].
