Z's diesel exhaust fluid network continues to grow

Z's diesel exhaust fluid network continues to grow

Z Energy continues to make life on the road easier for drivers of SCR vehicles in New Zealand with the expansion of its Z DEC (Diesel Emission Cleaner) network, one of the country’s most comprehensive.

Z’s General Manager, Commercial, Nicolas Williams, says expanding the Z DEC network is a deliberate move to make it even more convenient for drivers to fill up both their diesel and exhaust fluid at one stop.

“Just over a year ago, we had 14 strategically located truck stops around New Zealand where Z DEC was available on pump.

“Since then, the Z DEC network has grown to include two more sites in the South Island, and a third just opened late last month in the North. The Z Washdyke truck stop, in Timaru, opened with Z DEC in August last year, and the Z Templeton truck stop, in Christchurch, came online in September. Z’s third new site, in Sala Street in Rotorua, opened in April.”

Nicolas says all of Z’s truck stops offer fast and reliable payment terminals, and are fitted with fast-flow diesel pumps to enable quick turnaround times for drivers.

At the 17 truck stops where the exhaust fluid is now available, diesel and Z DEC can be dispensed and paid for in one stop.

“By ensuring both diesel and Z DEC are available at one stop, and with the added convenience of being able to pay for both with Z Card, we’ve been able to create some real efficiencies for both drivers and our customers’ back office teams.

“Nearly half of our Z DEC truck stops are co-located with Z service stations, so that one stop experience means drivers can combine refuelling and comfort stops – grabbing a hot Z Espress coffee or some of the delicious food on offer at the same stop.”

For Z, the decision to invest in its Z DEC network came down to supporting its customers’ changing needs and their drive to meet emission reduction targets.

“We want to be at the heart of the solution when it comes to sustainability, and we want to help our customers play their part, too.

“Z DEC is just another way Z is looking to deliver on its environmental and sustainability objectives. It’s about offering a product that more of our customers are looking for as they turn to cleaner emission vehicles.”
