IOR Petroleum expands in Queensland

Brisbane-based fuel service provider, IOR Petroleum, is expanding its footprint in Queensland by opening a new diesel stop on the Warrego Highway in Charlton.

The unmanned facility will be integrated with IOR's Fuel 'tap and go' TAG technology, which IOR says enables cashless transactions at all of its unmanned sites across Australia.

The Charlton facility joins more than 60 stops in the IOR network and will feature 16 fast-flow nozzles with a load-out facility for bulk diesel deliveries to farms, businesses and civil construction projects, discharging at 900L/min.

Locals are invited to the official opening ceremony on 8 June, led by Councillor Paul Antonio, Mayor of the Toowoomba region, and attendees will be able to get up close to a LifeFlight helicopter, Heart of Australia semi-trailer and a brand new IOR Kenworth T409 6×4 truck and dog.

After the official plaque unveiling, Mayor Antonio will also explain his vision for the Toowoomba Enterprise Hub (TEH) and how it will be supported by the Bypass, Wellcamp Airport and ultimately the Inland Rail.

TEH is reportedly one of the most significant transport, logistics and business hubs in Australia, offering the synergy of a central location encompassing an internationally capable airport and a major freight facility with more than 2,000 hectares of industrial land at the western outskirts of Toowoomba.

According to IOR, new facilities in Dalby and Warwick in Queensland are also planned for the coming months.
