South Africa has a limited rail network, which means that most goods are transported by road. This creates a high demand for diesel fuel and makes a diesel depot business an essential part of the country's logistics infrastructure.

The price of diesel is determined by global markets and is subject to fluctuations, which can affect the profitability of the business. The business may be vulnerable to changes in oil prices, and this could affect its profitability.

The business can also explore opportunities to diversify its offerings beyond diesel fuel, such as lubricants, oils, and other related products, to increase revenue streams. The business can explore forming strategic partnerships with other companies, such as logistics or transportation firms, to provide a complete solution for their fuel needs.

Fluctuations in the economy, including changes in the exchange rate, interest rates, inflation, and overall economic growth can significantly impact the profitability of diesel depot businesses.

What is the reason for the sale?
The seller wants to pursue other business opportunities

Why is this a good business?
The business offers a high barrier to entry for competitors, demand for refuelling generators has increased substantially in South-Africa
