TransDiesel becomes Shell’s official distributor

By Allen Jack

Christchurch-based TransDiesel has signed a deal with Shell, making it the official distributor of the latter’s motor oils and lubricants in New Zealand.

For TransDiesel, partnering with Shell, one of the world’s leading suppliers of lubricants and a key investor in oil-based projects, including biofuel and liquefied natural gas (LNG), is sure to increase its visibility in its home market. 

Established 30+ years ago, TransDiesel has already grown to become the authorised distributor for Volvo, Yanmar, Perkins, Kohler and Lombardini equipment. Known for its quality of operations and services, the company’s latest agreement has placed it at the centre of the New Zealand construction equipment sector.

“TransDiesel is a well-established 100% New Zealand owned business with a commitment to ensuring the brands they represent are global industry leaders in their respective fields,” said Paul Harris, COO, in an article with Scoop


“The company has experienced a sustained period of growth and success and this latest partnership with Shell is further testament to key international brands trust in TransDiesel being the best sales and service organisation to represent them in NZ.”
