Let’s work together

What We Do

Driving positive change in bulk logistics

We specialise in the transportation and distribution of bulk fuels and gases, providing unrivalled end-to-end logistics solutions across a wide range of products.

Every Oxalis journey is driven by our values. Investing in the safety of our people, being responsible for our planet and fueling our clients to achieve optimum efficiency and exponential growth. On the road, our vehicles are supported by cutting-edge systems, state-of-the-art driver technology and unwavering safety standards. But that is not our finishing line.

We believe that by being open in everything we do, we build the trust to develop highly innovative, bespoke solutions. But our proven track record is only made possible by our people, who join creative, technical thinking with precise, cost-effective strategy – all put into practice by our exceptional, essential drivers. This collaboration is not just our way of doing business – it’s who we are.

Petroleum

Delivering logistics solutions for every kind of bulk petroleum-based product; retail, commercial and aviation fuels such as petrol, diesel, gasoil and kerosene through to bitumen, bitumen emulsions, fuel oils and lubricants.

Gas

Providing intermodal and road solutions for bulk, mini bulk and cylinder gases, including airgases, CO₂, special gases, LPG, LNG/CNG, H₂ and chemgases.

Aviation

Our team of expert logistics specialists has the resource and capability to provide jet A1 fuelling bridging services to airports. The control of product from storage terminal to aircraft wing tip delivers a complete logistics solution.

Emerging

Oxalis is a leading logistics partner to organisations developing solutions to reduce harmful emissions. We are involved in green H₂, bio-CNG, bio-CO₂, bio-LPG, biofuels and carbon capture projects.

Safety & Innovation

Pioneering safety that puts people first

Our drivers are our frontline ambassadors, delivering not just product but trust, reliability and an unparalleled, uninterrupted service for our clients and their customers. Empowering our drivers to feel as fundamental as they are means pioneering driver safety training, future skills development and career progression.

Thatʼs why we are recognised as industry leaders when it comes to safety. Our state-of-the-art driver training programs are developed in-house in compliance with strict regulations – including a Defensive Driving course “Go Defensive” – all of which results in a reduction in safety incidents and reduced CO₂ emissions through improved fuel economy.

As well as having some of the most advanced trucks and trailers on the roads we know that holistic safety training is also about feeling valued with good pay, fair contracts, a diverse workforce and an inclusive company culture. Because if we canʼt do something properly, we wonʼt do it at all.

Innovating with intention

An Oxalis journey is about far more than A to B, itʼs about how we get there. That how has changed over the years and every time it does – we manage it, then master it. Because we see change as an opportunity to innovate with intention, deliver our strategic objectives and optimise our business. Becoming safer, more sustainable, more efficient, more cost-effective and more supportive.

Innovation is at the core of our business; itʼs part of our identity. The Oxalis culture encourages entrepreneurial thinking, allowing our people to embrace the creative process without fear of failure. From the engine room of our tech systems, where we use intelligent real-time analysis to deliver exceptional customer value and service, to our forward-thinking training for enhanced driver safety – at Oxalis, we never stand still in our constantly evolving industry.

With an experienced team at our helm, we push and probe our logistic solutions to deliver extraordinary projects that have impact, right now and in the future. With the rapid growth of biofuels, along with new energies such as bio-LPG, H₂, and the emerging BioCO₂ market, our relentless innovation ensures we are the logistics partner of tomorrowʼs world too.

  • Our Transport Management System has been developed to optimise payload, reduce empty kilometres and maximise asset utilisation, ensuring a lower cost to serve and reductions in overall CO₂ emissions.
  • By streamlining the entire ‘order to cashʼ process we have improved administration efficiencies, reducing invoicing speeds and overall working capital for our customers.
  • With tailormade network optimisation models, we ensure cost transparency along the entire supply chain to help inform operational network design.
  • Our operational business model enables fleet and driver resources to work flexibly across multiple different operations, increasing fleet utilisation and driver productivity.

Sustainability & Innovation

Working towards a more sustainable future

Together, we believe we can steer positive change that helps future-proof logistics operations. We adapt before we react, listen before we lead, streamline before we scale – with every action bolstered by an aggressive stride toward CO₂ emission reduction which supports our own sustainability pledge and our clientsʼ too.

We aim to deliver long-term sustainable supply chain solutions. Our fleet consists of the most up-to-date generations for low environmental impacts. We know we are a crucial cornerstone of a seamless, safe supply chain for millions; and itʼs a responsibility we never take lightly.
