This year 100 names added to the Wall of Fame
SHELL Australia was proud to again partner with the National Road Transport Hall of Fame to celebrate the 13th annual National Road Transport Hall of Fame Reunion in Alice Springs August 22-25.
The event, sponsored by Shell Rimula for the past 13 years, recognised 100 new inductees (one inductee has wished to remain anonymous) for their lifetime of service to the transport industry, with their induction into the Shell Rimula Wall of Fame on Saturday, August 24.
Gavin Corcoran, Shell transport marketing manager said Shell was committed to supporting Australia's road transport industry.
"It is a great honour to come up to Alice Springs and celebrate the achievements, moving stories and hardworking nature of the dedicated drivers and operators from the Australian transport sector," he said.
"This is a particularly important relationship for Shell as it significantly supports the longevity of the road transport industry's heritage in Australia.
"It also provides us with the opportunity to interact face to face with transport customers and highlight our continued product and network investment - sharing information on our quality lubricants and fuels which can help reduce costs and enhance productivity."
The reunion is part of a four-day celebration which includes the Shell Rimula Wall of Fame induction ceremony and the Shell Rimula inductee gala dinner.
Shell Australia has supported Australia's road transport community for more than 100 years.
Hall of Fame chief executive Liz Martin said this year's event was an occasion to remember comprising industry legends, new inductees, family and friends.
"Thank you to the staff, volunteers, friends and family who devoted hours of their time to create such a wonderful event including those who have worked this past year to build the new Trucks In Action Shed in time for this year's event. I would not have been able to do this without you. Between the barbecues and the dancing, I'm sure you'll agree the weekend was a huge success.Thank you to everyone for attending, congratulations to the inductees and if I don't see you beforehand, see you next year!"
