This was designed to support Thai transport manufacturers by sharing knowledge related to the transport industry and help expand business opportunities to all manufacturers nationwide. The opportunity was also taken to introduce CK-4 heavy-duty diesel engine oil that maximizes the efficiency and performance of heavy-duty trucks.

Ms. Veethara Trakulboon, Executive Director of Lubricants Business, The Shell Company of Thailand Limited, said: “Shell Rimula is a strong partner and works closely with customers in the transport industry, we have a good understanding of their needs, especially for new information and knowledge that can help them to adapt their businesses in this ever-changing industry. For this reason, we invited experts to share their knowledge of trends in the transport industry at this seminar. We also would like to thank all valued customers for joining the seminar and allow them to enhance their growth in Thailand’s transport industry and we hope this will be another way to Make Life’s Journeys Better for transport manufacturers.”

A number of Thailand’s leading customers in the transport industry and expert speakers participated in the seminar. Mr. Sunyawit Sethapokin, Chairman of the ASEAN Trucking Federation, spoke on the topic ‘Situation and trends in the Thai transport industry and sustainable development challenges’ while Ms. Pathamaporn Sawetjindakorn, Technical Director – Lubricants Thailand, addressed ‘Shell’s technological excellence in the development of lubricant oil for the transport industry’. She also introduced the CK-4 heavy duty diesel engine oils, which are one of Shell’s most popular products.

CK-4 heavy-duty engine oils, namely Shell Rimula R4 L, Shell Rimula R5 LE and Shell Rimula R6 LM, have received the highest level of certification from the American Petroleum Institute (API). Shell Rimula R4 L is suitable for heavy-duty diesel engines. It controls ash and dirt and protect engines against corrosion from acid and wear. Shell Rimula R5 LE, a synthetic technology engine oil for both modern and old engines as well as for transport in extreme temperatures, is designed to protect engines under all conditions and extend oil change interval and engine life. Shell Rimula R6 LM, a fully synthetic engine oil, is suitable for truck manufacturers and new-generation transport vehicles. It provides excellent engine protection, saves on maintenance, and allows long intervals between oil changes to keep the engine clean. Moreover, CK-4 products can support all kinds of use and needs in the transport industry.

“With our continuous development of lubricant oil innovations and by updating knowledge through this seminar, Shell helps drive business success and plays an important role in helping the transport industry to move forward with sustainability.” Ms. Veethara concluded.

In addition to the introduction of lubricant oil products, Shell also presented the Starship – hyper-fuel efficient truck. Built by Shell in collaboration with AirFlow Truck Company, Starship is a super truck incorporating the latest technologies and capable of reducing energy consumption during transportation. The recent test run of more than 3,700 kilometres showed that with an equal amount of fuel, the Starship truck was able to run further at 3.8 kilometres per litre, compared to the average freight ton efficiency of U.S. transport trucks at 2.7 kilometres per litre. It was also estimated that if all two million trucks in the U.S. reached the overall fuel economy and freight-tonne efficiency performance of the Starship, annual C02 emissions would be reduced by 229 million tonnes.*
