Today's fleet engineers operate under the same pressures as the wider fleet management operation – minimising maintenance costs, keeping the fleet on the road, improving fuel economy and meeting stringent emissions legislation are all challenges which have to be managed and balanced on a daily basis. Recognition of these challenges is why Shell Lubricants* proudly sponsors the 2012 IRTE Skills Challenge.
The highest quality lubricants on the market today, such as those developed by Shell, are the result of years of research & development and some of the best applied chemistry expertise in the world. Shell has carried out rigorous laboratory tests which demonstrate that if chosen and applied correctly, lubricants can deliver tangible business benefits. And these results are backed up by millions of dollars in savings that Shell’s lubricants and technical experts have helped deliver to customers across industries and continent.
By providing optimal engine protection, a lubricant can help lower maintenance costs and minimise the revenue losses that can result from downtime while doing unplanned truck maintenance. Shell, working in collaboration with leading original equipment manufacturers, has developed its range of Shell Rimula heavy-duty diesel engine oils designed specifically to provide outstanding protection against acids, deposits and wear. The Shell Rimula portfolio includes mineral oils such as Shell Rimula R3 X and Shell Rimula R4 L as well as the semi-synthetic Shell Rimula R5 LE and the fully- synthetic Shell Rimula R6 LME.
