Shell Okahandja Truck Stop Opens for Business

Vivo Energy Namibia, the company that markets and distributes Shell products, announced the official opening of the Shell Okahandja Truck Stop on 23 May.

The Shell Okahandja truck stop is centrally located on the corner of the B2 highway, and is meant to serve truck drivers and motorists using the highway. It lies between the Veddersdal and the Nu-Aib residential areas. This venue will also serve these communities, who in the past had to walk or drive all the way into the Okahandja CBD, for their fuel needs.

The truck stop will allow drivers to refill while also grabbing some refreshments at the convenience store. There are three pump islands which offer, V-Power, Diesel Extra and Shell Diesel 50.

Managing Director of Vivo Energy Namibia, Johan Grobbelaar, at the official launch re-affirmed Vivo Energy Namibia’s commitment to its customers. “We are heavily focused on extending our network of service stations to benefit our customers. We are here for the long run, thus our commitment to expanding our services in the country.”

Shell Okahandja Truck Stop conforms to the required company standards and adheres to all safety requirements as per the company’s Health Safety Security and Environment policy.

“Safety is key which is why we have ensured that the staff at this service station, as with all our other service stations have been through rigorous training. The safety of our customers and staff is a number one priority,” Grobbelaar added.

The mayor of Okahandja Valerie Aron welcomed the development and praised Shell and Vivo energy for investing in Okahandja and its residents.
