Petrol strike: Caltex Eastern Cape continuously monitoring situation

AUGUST 2, 2016

Caltex Eastern Cape Marketer (CECM) CEO, Clive Berlyn, said that the situation in the Eastern Cape is being monitored continuously and measures are in place to address matters as and when required. 

“We do not anticipate any delivery interruptions from our transporters, as Uzuko Carriers and Crusade Logistics drivers are not affiliated with the same union. We are committed to keep our motorists fuelled up and on the road”.

Chevron South Africa released the following statement on Monday:

Chevron South Africa has prepared for the strike in an effort to reduce the impact on motorists. Refinery operations are continuing and we are doing as much as reasonably possible to maintain the supply of fuel to our national network of Caltex stations.

Spokesperson for Chevron South Africa, Suzanne Pullinger, says: “The safety of our employees, the public and the environment are Chevron’s foremost business imperatives. We are monitoring the situation closely and continue to adjust our contingency plans to address the knock-on effects that may arise from the strike. While nothing can be guaranteed, we are doing as much as reasonably possible to ensure an adequate supply of fuel products to our Caltex network.”
