Booster announced it has started gas routes in Seattle, Wash. The company launches the market with new, local customers including Advanced Government Services, Century Link, and Monarch.
Current customers have also expanded Booster service to their Seattle fleets including Traffic Management Inc. and Imperfect Produce. Seattle is the first market the company has launched since its $56 million series C funding round in June.
“Seattle holds a special place in Booster history. It was after sitting in line at a gas station on Capitol Hill one rainy day that I was inspired to create Booster,” said Frank Mycroft, CEO, Booster. “We’ve delivered over two million tanks of gas safely and sustainably. It’s exciting to see how much we’ve accomplished, and we’re just getting started. We believe a gas station that is mobile and comes to consumers and fleets is the future.”

This tried and true driver training solution is truly global in its approach.
For one last-mile delivery company, having Booster deliver fuel has translated to huge benefits when it comes to time and money saved.
Bridgestone has been working on a variety of new products of interest to fleets, including a run-flat tire that lets you drive up to up to 50 miles at 50 miles per hour after puncture.

Instead, what I and most of the keen-eyed observers I've been following have been trying to do is to persuade senior executives that they need to appreciate the dramatic ways in which digital technology is changing the face of business, and to deepen their understanding of the ever-expanding array of applications that may be used to undermine or strengthen their competitiveness.
To be sure – and as I've cited in recent posts – the pace of change in the business world driven by new technology is accelerating and is being reflected in the speed by which the roster of industry leaders has been changing recently and is forecast to continue.
