CAFU and Al Maha Petroleum sign deal for fuel supply

20 Jan 2020

CAFU, the MENA region’s first on-demand fuel delivery app, on Sunday announced that it has entered into a fuel supply partnership with Al Maha Petroleum to deliver its popular services to customers in the sultanate. 

Developed entirely in the UAE, CAFU is a fast, safe and easy-to-use on-demand fuel delivery service app allowing customers to order car fuel at their own convenience. CAFU has delivered over 1mn fills of quality petrol in both Super 98 and Special 95, which are supplied by over 100 custom-built vehicles straight to consumers’ homes, offices or anywhere their car might be parked – users need to only provide their car location and schedule time of their fuel delivery through the app.

CAFU’s launch in Oman marks the first international market entry for the technology company since it began services in the UAE in November 2018. 

Rashid al Ghurair, founder and CEO of CAFU said, “Today we are honoured to announce Oman as our first international market, a critical part of our expansion strategy. Through our joint agreement with Al Maha Petroleum, we will transform how people in Oman fuel their vehicles by digitalising their entire experience.” 

Eng Hamed bin Salim al Maghdri, CEO of Al Maha Petroleum, said, “Our partnership with CAFU will revolutionise the way our customers refuel their vehicles and represents us with the opportunity to grow our market share in the Omani market. ”

The launch of the new service is structured around a phased approach and will first be available in Muscat. The first CAFU pilots, which are fully trained and qualified, will be touring the streets of Muscat as early as this month. 

CAFU services will be available in Oman at a price of RO1.80 for pay-as-you-go services and RO2.60 for a CAFU subscriptions, with the cost of petrol being the same as in retail outlets. 

The CAFU app is available for download on Android and iOS.
