Australia’s leading provider of logistics services to the resources sector, Toll Group, today unveiled the safest and most technologically-advanced fuel tankers in Australia.
The new fleet was on display at a customer event celebrating Toll’s commitment to its Indigenous communities in Adelaide, South Australia.
The high-tech BA Triple tankers incorporate world’s best practice in safety systems and intelligence including in-vehicle
monitoring systems and seeing-eye technology, outward-facing cameras, real-time satellite tracking, electronic braking systems and anti-roll technology.
Speaking at the event, Toll Energy General Manager Glenn Benson said the safety of Toll’s people and the communities in which Toll operates is a priority, and one that these new vehicles help to demonstrate.
“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,” Mr Benson said.
“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 new tankers will transport crude oil from Mereenie, Northern Territory to Port Bonython, South Australia for leading oil and gas producer Santos, as part of Toll’s role as a major logistics provider for multiple Santos operations across Australia.
Mr Benson said the unique Indigenous Australian branding, a first for Toll, was a visible reminder of Toll’s national approach to working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities offering 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. “We look forward to the continued support of our employees, local communities and customers such as Santos on our journey of Indigenous Australian engagement.”
The original artwork design on the tankers was created for Toll’s Reconciliation Action Plan by Indigenous artist Marcus Lee to express the daily movement activities of the transport and logistics sector that Toll provides, while also representing the many and varied employment pathways on offer.
