Dubai's Cafu to bring on-demand fuel delivery to Oman

Cafu signed Partnership with Al Maha Petroleum for fuel delivery in Oman

Dubai's Cafu to bring on-demand fuel delivery to Oman

Dubai-based on-demand fuel delivery app Cafu will launch in Oman following a new joint-agreement signed with local firm Al Maha Petroleum.


Dubai-based on-demand fuel delivery app Cafu will launch in Oman following a new joint-agreement signed with local firm Al Maha Petroleum.

Cafu said the services will initially operate in Muscat before being rolled out to other parts of the sultanate.

The tech firm revealed the new operation in Oman is the first part of its international expansion strategy.

Cafu, operating in the UAE since 2018, delivers fuel to homes, offices or anywhere a car might be parked with its custom-built vehicles – after users provide car location and a schedule for fuel delivery through the app.

Rashid Al Ghurair, founder and CEO of CAFU, said the start-up is “humbled” to be able to take Cafu to Oman.

“Through our joint agreement with Al Maha Petroleum we will transform how people in Oman fuel their vehicles by digitalising their entire experience,” he said.

“Along with our partners, we are confident that our technology, combined with our growing fleet of safety-tested and certified trucks, will deliver a one-of-a-kind convenience for our customers in Oman.”

Eng Hamed bin Salim Al Maghdri, CEO of Al Maha Petroleum, said the partnership allows the company the opportunity to grow its market share in the Omani market.

“A proven concept in the UAE, we are confident that people in Oman are equally perceptive towards this innovative and digitally driven solution that will allow them to free up some of their spare time they would otherwise be spending on gas stations,” he said.
