To be the sole transport provider for Linde's helium cargo across the GCC
Tristar Group has announced that it has won a five-year contract, valued at $8 million, with Linde Global Helium. Playing a key role in Linde Global Helium’s supply chain, Tristar will provide transport for Linde’s helium cargo across the GCC.
Tristar will utilise its specially designed fleet which has advanced built-in safety features, to ensure the safe transport and delivery of Linde’s cryogenic containers.
The cargo will be transported by Tristar’s drivers, who are all accredited and qualified in the handling of hazardous products including cryogenic gases at extremely low temperatures.
Eugene Mayne, Group CEO of Tristar said: “We are delighted to have signed this contract with our long-standing customer, Linde Global Helium.
"Whilst this is most certainly a major win for us, we’re even more honored to continue working with Linde as they share in Tristar’s values and hold the same standards when it comes to health and safety.
"In 2018, we received the Linde Global Helium Award for our outstanding safety performance by achieving eight million accident-free kilometers for the transport of helium containers in the GCC.
"We look forward to continuing this partnership and further delivering on our proven excellence in operations, health and safety.”
Kurt Richter, Head of Helium Supply Chain Management at Linde, said: "Helium is a globally traded gas. We pride ourselves on having a robust supply chain, with a diverse portfolio of sources, the largest fleet of cryogenic Bulk Helium containers in the world."
Tristar has been providing transportation services to Linde Global since 2006 across the GCC. Earlier this year, Tristar Group’s joint venture in Saudi Arabia, United Stars, signed a five-year contract with Linde-Sigas.
Tristar will transport industrial and medical gases to Linde-Sigas clients across the Kingdom from five centrally located depots in Dammam, Jeddah, Riyadh, Jubail, and Yanbu.
