One of Australia’s leading providers of transport and logistics, Toll Group, has secured a significant tender with Shell for a range of transportation services across Australia.

The new deal is expected to generate revenues of approximately $250 million over five years.

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.

The news comes as the McAleese Group, operators of tankers running under the Cootes banner announced they have lost its contract with Shell and also BP.

Toll Liquids General Manager Tim Kehoe said 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.

“We are really pleased to be expanding our business with Shell,” Mr Kehoe said.

“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.

“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.
