Toll Liquids gains impetus from new Shell link

Toll Group has won a huge tender with Shell for a range of national transportation services.

The deal is worth $250 million and the initial five-year term involves bulk fuel deliveries to service stations in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

The contract also includes interstate deliveries of both fuel and lubricants.

A Toll spokesman says it's recruitment arm, Toll People, would consider tanker drivers from Cootes, which lost the contract, as well as its own and others to make up any personnel shortfall that arises.

The company was unlikely to take on Cootes vehicles as such deals tend to stipulate new fleet, he adds.

Toll Liquids General Manager Tim Kehoe says the new contract "builds on the strong relationship that Toll has with Shell" both as a large user of transport fuel and as a supplier of bulk fuel transport.

"Our businesses are well aligned in our determination to put safety first at all times and Shell has recognised this in awarding the work to Toll," Kehoe says.

"This contract supports our fuel distribution strategy perfectly and further confirms Toll’s commitment to sustainable investment in the sector."

Contracts are expected to be finalised in the coming weeks.
