About our firm

Since its founding in 2004 by Philippe Auquière, CET has worked with recognised expertise in the following areas:
  • fuel procurement and management; and
  • facilities for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and drivers on the road.

At a crossroads between the fields of fuel and transport, CET advises and supports French and European firms, as well as local governments.

Our expertise in fuel distribution has not only brought us to provide audit and training services to transport companies, but also to explore the implementation of alternative strategies for fuel procurement and distribution.

Our brokering service adds another dimension to the assistance provided to enterprises to optimise fuel procurement and limit the impact of price increases on their bottom line. In the transport sector, cost containment in diesel procurement can be a decisive competitive advantage.

CET conducts feasibility studies, particularly to identify suitable building sites for truck stops, transport hubs and secure parking areas.

In the transport sector, CET conducts qualitative and quantitative surveys in cooperation with transport companies. We also conduct surveys of truck drivers to better identify their usage patterns, understand their expectations and anticipate changes in their needs.

We intervene, in the capacity of operational consultant, on behalf of companies seeking to launch new services, supporting them in operations set-up, searches for partnerships and project coordination.

Assignments fulfilled by CET to date include:

  • feasibility studies to identify suitable building sites for international truck stops;
  • drafting of technical specifications for public-private partnership (PPP) invitations to tender for the operation of a secure parking area;
  • consulting in the implementation of a major transport group's procurement strategy;
  • operational consulting in the implementation of a new fleet card;
  • qualitative study on truck drivers' expectations of truck stops; and
  • consulting for a foreign group's acquisition of a service station in France.
