About ACAPMA

WHO WE ARE

Australasian Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association (ACAPMA) is the national peak body representing the interests of the fuel wholesale, distribution and retail industry in Australia.

The Association is first and foremost an employer organisation that is formally recognised under Australian law as the industrial advocate for fuel marketing and fuel distribution businesses in Australia.

First established in 1976, the Association started operations as the Australian Petroleum Agents and Distributors Association (APADA) and subsequently changed its name to ACAPMA in 2007. The name change was accompanied by a change in the Association’s Constitution to incorporate national representation of fuel retailers.

If you would like to know more, explore our Secretariat and Board below.

WHO WE REPRESENT

Today, the Association directly represents 95% of all fuel distributors in the country and directly and indirectly (via franchisees and distributor-owned retailers) around 75% of the 7,300 service stations operating in Australia.

The scope of ACAPMA’s reach extends from ‘refinery gate’ through to the forecourt of Australia’s national network of service stations and petrol convenience outlets – including fuel wholesale, fuel distributors, fuel retailers, petroleum equipment suppliers and petroleum service providers.

ACAPMA’s member businesses vary from small to medium businesses, through to large corporations.
