  • OilFox telemetry enables Castrol and its customers to track bulk tank oil levels online
  • System automates lubricant replenishment
  • Helps workshop chains track lubricant usage and forecasting across multiple sites 


Castrol has partnered with OilFox, a European leader in tank remote monitoring, to provide a Castrol managed automated monitoring and stock replenishment service to customers. 


The OilFox system uses sensors within the tank to detect when stores of lubricant are running low, uploading data to an online stock management tool. Castrol is electronically alerted triggering an automated stock replenishment process. In addition, workshop managers can view their real time lubricant stock levels and historical consumption patterns via an associated intuitive online app.


“OilFox’s telemetry systems have the power to revolutionise the bulk-tank supply chain for our customers,” said Paul Miller, Marketing Manager at Castrol Europe. “Workshop managers can effectively outsource oil stock management, and ensure they commit to spend for new stocks only when they really need to. The only time spent on managing bulk tank oil stock will be reading delivery confirmation emails.”


The OilFox telemetry system also provides useful insight for forecasting purposes and lets larger workshop groups monitor bulk tank oil usage across multiple sites. Installation of the telemetry equipment is quick and simple, with minimal efforts to a customer site’s daily operations. 


For any questions and enquiries, customers should contact their Castrol key account manager directly.
