Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Fuel Wholesaling industry has low capital intensity as a result of the nature of wholesaling. For every £1.00 spent on capital, approximately £14.28 is spent on wages.

Many of these are rented and operated by a third party, with only a small number owned by wholesalers outright.
