Organizations are just scratching their heads to scale back these costs and also increase the top line. Additionally, higher fuel prices are considered the main driver of inflation in Europe. In May, consumer prices in the euro area rose by an average of 8.1%. compared to a 7.4 percent increase a month earlier. Imagine if nations take that kind of hit how would fuel prices affect your organization. In organizations from sales to logistics, everyone is fuel dependent to stay on track.
