Mr. Ruengsak Srithanawiboonchai, Acting Executive Director of Retail Business, the Shell Company of Thailand Limited., said: “We thank Thai motorists for casting their votes for Shell to win the title of ‘Outstanding Fuel’ at the TAQA Award for the three consecutive years. Our premium fuel, Shell V-Power, has continuously gained in popularity as the number 1 seller of premium grade fuels*. Shell is committed to developing our products and services as mobility solutions in response to customers’ journey needs. As vehicle engine technology constantly evolves and customers look for high-quality fuels that protect and maximize engine performance, Shell constantly develops innovations to meet their demands in collaboration with a technical partner Scuderia Ferrari. We have recently launched Shell V-Power Diesel with DYNAFLEX technology for Diesel B10-compatible vehicles. Shell also aims to elevate our services to respond to the lifestyles of customers in the digital age, with various initiatives including contactless payments, and the new rewards programme Shell GO+, which enables members to conveniently switch from a card-based rewards programme to the mobile application with enhanced benefits.
Ms. Veethara Trakulboon, Executive Director of Lubricants Business, the Shell Company of Thailand Limited., said: “For seven years in a row, Thai motorists have voted for Shell to receive the ‘Outstanding Lubricant’ recognition at the TAQA Award, demonstrating the high quality of Shell’s lubricants. Modern day customers place importance on products that are sustainable, and at the same time, enhance engine performance. This is why Shell continuously innovates products that respond to customers’ needs, including Shell Helix Ultra, designed from Gas-To-Liquids (GTL) technology, which converts natural gas into oil that contains almost no impurities. Shell Helix Ultra helps improve engine acceleration, protection, fuel efficiency, and reduces soot. Additionally, Shell has also strengthened our sales channels by partnering with a leading e-commerce provider to strengthen convenience for customers in purchasing our lubricants.”
Shell has won customers over, not only for its high-quality fuel and lubricant products, but also for the service stations, which are continuously being expanded and improved through innovation and business partnerships — all to create great experiences for customers who stop by Shell stations nationwide.
