Litro Gas wins award for Covid-19 resilience

15 November, 2020

In recognition of its outstanding commitment during COVID-19 period, Litro Gas Lankahas been awarded the LPG industry awards, the Argus / WLPGA Award for Covid-19 Resilience. The Argus LPG Awards have partnered this year with the World LPG Association (WLPGA) and was staged during the eLPG Week (2-6 November) which was held online due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Among the categories awarded were The Trader of the Year Award, Tech Innovation Award, The National Association Award and The COVID-19 Resilience Award.

Anil Koswatte, Chairman and CEO of Litro Gas Lanka Ltd. and Litro Gas Terminal Lanka (Pvt) Ltd., said, “We were able to initiate fast turnaround times, assuring an island-wide delivery during lockdown, which indeed was challenging to us.”

Innovation and efficiency during this time became critical concerns where Litro Gas partnered with “PickMe” Food to facilitate delivery which helped broaden the distribution network. An easy 4 digit helpline for island-wide home delivery (1311) was also introduced and launched along with a specially designed Litro Gas Home Delivery Mobile App which enabled customers to meet their LPG requirements conveniently and swiftly.

“Despite the challenges the industry faced during the lockdown, Litro Gas was able to record a 4% organic growth in sales and 4% increase in market share up to 76%.

This enabled us to pass on a tremendous economic benefit to the customer - by being able to absorb rising global LPG prices and thus deliver the Government promise of affordable LPG to the people.”

“As a customer centric state enterprise with a unique multinational heritage, Litro Gas believes in delivering a world class service to our customers at all times – that is our benchmark for ourselves and the industry.

“The Covid-19 Resilience Award we received at Argus LPG Awards for Excellence 2020 will continue to motivate our team to promote Litro Gas as an exceptional fuel,” he says in conclusion.
