OSHKOSH, WI--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2015) - Swift Fuels, LLC, a recognized leader in developing unleaded aviation fuels, today announced it expects to finalize a fuel distribution framework agreement soon with Avfuel Corporation to distribute its recently launched Swift 94 MON Avgas.

Swift Fuels, in collaboration with Avfuel Corporation, a global supplier of aviation fuel and services, is developing a framework agreement to serve as a template allowing equitable distribution processes amongst the major avgas distributors for Swift 94 MON Avgas and any future avgas replacements.

This model, which provides for safe, efficient and equitable access to all top quality avgas suppliers, follows three basic principles:

  • Equitable and competitive pricing
  • Product access for all major branded wholesale suppliers such as Avfuel, World Fuel Services, Eastern Aviation (Shell), Phillips 66 and EPIC
  • Fair allocation during shortages and peak demands.

"Swift Fuels appreciates the passion, foresight and objectivity of the team at Avfuel to help us craft an equitable process considering the market dynamics of the top North American avgas distributors thereby allowing our unleaded fuel to be deployed safely, fairly and cost-effectively," said Chris D'Acosta, CEO of Swift Fuels. "We believe this will help streamline our supply-chain planning and execution leading to the availability of more Swift unleaded avgas to strategic markets in the months ahead."

"This model is the best way to assure maximum demand for the product which will provide the most competitive price and greatest availability, resulting in a positive outcome for the industry," said Marci Ammerman, Avfuel's Vice President of Marketing.
