How We Serve Our Marine Partners
SCL allows you to access environmentally friendly product options when you need them.
More than most other industries, the marine sector is bound by EPA regulations for diesel exhaust fluid, lubricants and all other products they rely on to get from port to port. They rely on environmentally friendly options that, many times, other distributors do not have on hand due to cost and unpredictable demand. Sport fishing boats, commercial tuna ships, cruise lines and fleets often need immediate access to EPA-approved products at ports of arrival with little notice or business suffers. And due to their operating conditions, maintenance is often unpredictable and frequent.
SCL has the capability to store numerous SKUs on hand, so the vast majority of the time, we can deliver products the next day or the same day.
SCL has the capability to store numerous SKUs on hand, so 99.5% of the time, we can deliver products the next day or the same day. Due to our relationships with cruise lines, sport and commercial fishing operators, our stock includes a number of environmentally friendly, EPA-approved products for marine use. We offer diesel exhaust fluid, often in large quantities, hydraulic fluid, lubricants, engine oils, fuels and more to partners at ports all along northern and southern California. We can also help determine the right product choices based on your equipment and your application, which can ultimately help cut down on maintenance costs and save precious time you could otherwise spent in port.
Drivers have undergone maintain OSHA 30 Construction and General Industry safety training courses. To promote safer work practices and prevent accidents and exposures, OSHA 10 (Construction), OSHA 10 (Maritime) provide SCL Team Members with the skills and knowledge that is necessary to enforce safety and health at work. Dry Dock Training and Certification and Driver Background Investigations (DBID) continue our commitment to workplace safety.
