In order to modernize road transportation and ensure the safe movement of POL products across the country, Pakistan State Oil (PSO), with support from carriage contractors, continues to induct the latest vehicles into its fleet.
Built in complete compliance with the Oil & Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) and National Highways Authority (NHA) standards, the latest range of fuel tankers will add efficiency and agility to PSO’s road transportation system to further the company’s strategic ambition of ensuring safe and uninterrupted fuel supply nationwide. In view of the massive CPEC development program, this is an important step of PSO, in collaboration with the Al Haj FAW Pakistan where only fully compliant vehicles will be able to take part in the cross border trading.
Comprising approximately 8,000 vehicles, PSO’s logistics management system is the country’s largest tank lorry (TLS) fleet that transports POL products across the country. The company moves fuel products through rail and pipelines network, though road remains the primary channel for fuel transportation.
MD & CEO PSO, Sheikh Imranul Haque, said, “PSO undertakes all necessary measures to deliver on its pledge of best facilitating its customers. Besides efforts to diversify our transportation portfolio, we are rapidly modernizing our road transportation system that moves the major portion of POL products across the country. The induction of new tank lorries will not only enhance PSO’s capacity to move more fuel but also prepare the company to fulfill the country’s increasing fuel needs in wake of new business opportunities emerging from a consistent economic growth and mega projects like China Pakistan Economic Corridor.”
Mr. Nian, representative of FAW in Pakistan, said, “FAW is a leading truck brand in China and serves its customers with safe, reliable and efficient world class products. We are honored that the leading Oil Marketing Company in Pakistan, PSO has provided us an opportunity to play our productive role in improvement of oil transportation system in Pakistan”. PWKD09042018
