I am excited to announce that in addition to offering a free sandwich and beverage to frontline medical professionals, we are extending this offer to every commercial driver that visits a Shell gas station as a small thank you for the critical work they are doing.

Commercial drivers include truck drivers (long-haul and freight drivers), fuel delivery drivers, couriers (such as UPS and FedEx drivers), grocery delivery drivers, and any other delivery vehicle operators that can be identified by a uniform or by the delivery vehicle they are driving.

Our Shell retail network continues to be open for business and we are working hard to maintain service for our customers. We have put in place enhanced cleaning procedures and are making every effort to keep washrooms open and sanitized for customers when it is safe to do so. We understand that this is not always possible and apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Commercial drivers are also frontline heroes that keep our world moving and functioning during these challenging times and we wanted to show our heartfelt appreciation. Please be safe and continue to look out for one another on the front lines.

March 31, 2020 - Recently, together with leaders from across our Canadian retail business, we visited some of our frontline sales associates – while respecting social distancing – to show support for the work they have been doing. These “service champions” as we call them, are truly Shell heroes. They keep us all moving when we need them most – ensuring our sites are sanitized and offering a smile every day in these uncertain times.

As I visited with Shell sales associates, I couldn’t help but be reminded of just how much the world has changed as COVID-19 continues to impact communities across Canada. But the one thing that has remained constant is the bravery of those on the front lines.

At Shell, we are taking several actions to support efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. At our gas stations, we have implemented comprehensive measures to safeguard the health and safety of our employees, sales associates, customers and partners.

But we want to do more. We also want to help people working on the front lines outside of our company. Starting now, in more than 15,000 participating retail sites across 30 countries, we will be providing free food and warm beverages to healthcare professionals, such as EMTs, nurses and doctors.

As a small thank you for all you are doing for our communities, we invite Canadian healthcare professionals to stop into any participating Shell gas station . All you need to bring is your medical ID and we will provide a free sandwich and warm beverage to keep you fuelled throughout your day.

We hope to support many local Canadian heroes during this challenging time. Please be safe and continue to look out for one another on the front lines.
