Caltex says the opening of its purpose-built truck stop at Banksmeadow in Sydney will give easier access to quality fuel to transport companies and truck drivers accessing the city’s key air and sea transport hubs.
The Banksmeadow site is the newest addition to Caltex’s national truck network, which the company says is the largest truck-refuelling network in Australia, comprising 200 dedicated truck stops and 300 truck-friendly sites across the country.
Attached to Caltex’s Banksmeadow fuel terminal, the new facility is designed to cater for a wide range of trucks, from light rigid to B-doubles, with 16 ultra-high-flow pumps that can deliver diesel at a rate of 130lt per minute.
The site provides 24/7 access to Vortex diesel, diesel and AdBlue and has StarCard facilities for easy payment and effective fleet management.
Caltex Australia General Manager Business to Business Sales Scott Nicholls said the new site would be of significant assistance to trucks travelling along the eastern seaboard, joining key refuelling sites on major trucking routes from the Port of Melbourne through to Sydney’s ports and on to the Port of Brisbane.
“The new site is ideally positioned between Sydney’s two major international gateways – Port Botany and Sydney Airport – and connected to the key arterial roads that service approximately 7,750 commercial vehicles travelling into the area every day,” he said.
“With nearby motorway expansions planned, the Banksmeadow truck stop has a growing role to play providing convenient access to the high-quality fuels the transport industry needs to perform their critical function in our economy.”
Last year, Caltex bolstered its national truck network with the addition of 15 dedicated sites, including a facility at the Port of Brisbane. Continuing its investment into Australia’s growing transport and logistics sector, there are plans to open another 10 sites in 2016.
