For more than 65 years, Americans have relied on Ferrellgas for their residential, industrial/commercial, and agricultural propane needs. Ferrellgas is a propane industry leader and a good neighbor to approximately 1 million customers nationwide. Their commitment to deliver safe, dependable propane service is backed by people who live and raise their families in the communities that they serve.

Here's what one IWLA member has already saved by contracting through IWLA's Ferrellgas Member Advantage Program:

"I decided to consider Ferrellgas as a propane vendor after hearing about them through the IWLA Member Advantage Program. I was initially skeptical because our company had a long-term relationship with a leading competitor and, as a larger customer, I did not expect to see any significant savings. Surprisingly, my initial analysis of the Ferrellgas Member Advantage rate indicated a company savings of over $40,000 per year. We validated this and made the switch to Ferrellgas. The transition process was well-planned and executed by the Ferrellgas team and now, months later, we have new equipment, better service and we are saving between 20% to 25% on our propane costs."
Brett Mears, Executive Vice President - Palmer Logistics

“The IWLA continually goes above and beyond for its members and it really paid dividends recently with their Member Advantage Program. WOW Logistics had utilized Ferrellgas for our propane requirements for a number of years and had been very satisfied with our partnership. With the national program that IWLA implemented in place, Ferrellgas worked with WOW to transition us from our current contract and secure us on the new program which has reduced WOW’s annual propane costs by approximately 40%. What other organization can help you improve your bottom line? The IWLA truly adds value for all its members and I would encourage warehouse companies, both large and small to become members – the value the IWLA has brought to WOW has more than paid for our dues for years to come.”
Matt Oswald, Executive Vice President - WOW Logistics

Suburban Propane (Associate)

Suburban Propane is one of the largest propane suppliers in the United States. The nationwide program offers services for bulk refilling stations and/or cylinder exchange. Suburban Propane offers IWLA members national pricing discounts, automatic scheduled deliveries, 24-hour service, safety training, and thorough instructions on equipment use.

Here's what two members had to say about this IWLA Member Advantage Program:

“We signed our company up for the Suburban Propane IWLA Member Advantage program and are realizing excellent cost savings over and above the local discount we were already receiving. It is fast and easy to sign up, and we notice the additional savings we are getting through the IWLA program. Suburban Propane service is very good and we will continue to use them locally and throughout the country where we have the need.”
Donna C. Fedorka, Director of Purchasing - Kane is Able Inc

"Based on the sponsor mention in This Week @ IWLA, I contacted Suburban Propane about IWLA member pricing. We are an existing Suburban Propane customer and a very low volume user (usually only 2-3 tanks/week). Because our overall expenditure is low, I was not expecting much of a difference. Quite frankly, it's been below our radar because of the dollar amount involved. I was shocked to learn how much our price would drop under the program. I gasped when I received my first bill at the new rate and find the savings approaching 40%. That amounts to real dollar savings at even our low volumes. Thank you!"
