Tristar Adds New Road Fleet for Shell in Oman
Tristar Group, the global integrated energy logistics company, announced that it has successfully inducted six fuel tankers and 11 Scania trucks to its fleet in Oman, which are under contract with Shell.
The tankers have a capacity of 36.4 kiloliters, and have safety features including emergency braking, lane departure warning signals, an electronic stability programme and state of the art air bags and inflatable curtains.
The Scania trucks have safety features that will improve performance and reduce Co2 emissions.
Eugene Mayne, Group CEO of Tristar said: “We are pleased to announce the addition of these technologically advanced tankers and trucks to our fleet in Oman.
"As a key player in the maritime and road transport industry, it is our duty to take a leading role in improving safety conditions by ensuring all our vessels and vehicles are equipped with the latest technology.
"Tristar has been transporting fuels for Shell within Oman, and we look forward to continuing our partnership and working towards improving road safety for all drivers.”
Tristar Oman was established in 2002. Based in Muscat, Tristar Oman is one of the leading bulk liquid road transport companies in the Sultanate and is a key transporter for major international and local oil and gas companies.
Tristar began its relationship with Shell Oman in the same year, transporting fuels across the Sultanate and bridging Jet fuel at Muscat International Airport.
In 2012, the relationship expanded to include the distribution of bulk and packed lubricants within Oman and UAE.
The same year, Tristar was awarded the ‘Shell Best Haulier of the Year’, recognized for its compliance with Shell global standards, operational excellence and customer service.
