Toll puts new tankers to work as part of Santos contract
Toll's new fleet of BA triple tankers will transport crude oil for Santos.

 

Toll has put a new fleet of fuel tankers to work in the Northern Territory and South Australia as part of its contract with oil and gas giant Santos.

Billed by the company as the safest and most technologically-advanced fuel tankers in Australia, the BA triples include in-vehicle monitoring systems and seeing-eye technology, outward-facing cameras, real-time satellite tracking, electronic braking systems and anti-roll technology.

The new tankers will transport crude oil from Mereenie in the Northern Territory to Port Bonython in South Australia as part of Toll’s role as the major logistics provider for Santos across Australia.

"Our focus on the safety of our vehicles out on the road is a key part of our safety commitment to our communities, regardless of whether they’re in urban, regional or remote areas," Toll Energy general manager Glenn Benson says.

"We are proud to operate a fleet that enhances the safety of its driver and other road users, while at the same time improving the productivity of our operations and the service we are able to provide to our customers."

The BA triples will stand out not only for their size but also their distinct branding.

Toll has put Indigenous artwork on the tankers in recognition of its work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people on job and community development opportunities.

"For many years Toll has been engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities throughout Australia in relation to training and employment opportunities, procurement of business and providing in-kind support," Benson says.

Indigenous artist Marcus Lee is responsible for the original artwork design on the tankers.
