BUTANE-PROPANE NEWS, December 2008
Propane wholesaler Alliance Energy Services LLC (North Kansas City, Mo.) wants its nearly 300 customers in the Southeast, Midwest, and Northeast to manage timing risk and avoid speculating in the futures market when it comes to securing supply. Rather, the sixyear- old company takes a \"services\" approach, incorporating risk-management strategies with a supply plan specific to each of its clients\' retail operations.
\"We view ourselves as a consultative wholesaler who recognizes that no one knows with certainty where prices are going to go in the future,\" observes Jason Doyle, president and founder. \"The goal is to remove the guesswork, supply the customer with a strategic plan, and take a disciplined approach to helping our clients maximize profit and achieve their desired financial goals.\"
