OTR gives truck drivers first-class facilities

SOUTH Australia's leading convenience retailer OTR has recently opened a world-class facility for truck drivers on a major truck route out of Adelaide at Port Wakefield Rd, Bolivar.

The construction of the OTR Port Wakefield Rd site was the largest single investment to date made by the Peregrine Corporation in building an OTR convenience store catering for B-double and road train trucks up to 36.5 metres in length.

Built on over three hectares, the store is an Australian-first convenience experience offering all 24-hour services including first-class trucking facilities with showers, a truckies' lounge and a truck fuelling area under a dedicated canopy that has BP Ultimate Diesel, hi-flow diesel and AdBlue®.

There is also 24-hour food offers with a drive thru retail store, Oporto Chicken, Wok in a Box, state-of-the-art car wash, a supermarket, Brumby's bakery and a Krispy Kreme factory.

Michaela Webster, OTR chief operating officer, said the site gave truck drivers a great facility.

"We want to give our customers the best facilities we can and are already fine tuning some aspects like where the truck drivers park to sleep so noise for them is kept to a minimum," she said.

The OTR fuel card can also be used at the site, it is accepted at over 130 OTR sites around SA and nationally through the BP network offering flexible invoicing and payment terms and vehicle performance analysis reports for companies.

"The building of this OTR store has created important jobs for South Australian's across construction, food manufacturing and retail sectors.

"We are an innovative and dynamic family business that is proud to be generating jobs and investing in the future of South Australia."
