Shell International Petroleum has named Franklin Fueling Systems as a one-stop-shop for its global retail fuel system needs.

The new agreement includes a broad array of fueling system equipment and associated design services and achieves Shell's aim of materially reducing its total cost of ownership by applying Franklin's expertise in optimised system design.

Shell will also benefit from simplied ordering, improved logistics cossts and reduced future maintenance/environmental costs.

Chris Hallsworth, global category manager for retail engineering at Shell, said: "When choosing a supplier partner we turned to the only company with global reach able to supply the full range of products required by Shell."

Another significant factor in Shell's decision was the reduction of contractor high-risk exposure hours. Franklin is said to be equipped with designs for pre-assembly that reduce on-site labour hours and help contribute to the Shell 'Goal Zero' safety aim and commitment to environmental sustainability.

Jay Walsh, Franklin's vice president of business development, said: "We are pleased to be associated with a world-class organisation like Shell International Petroleum. Franklin is committed to helping Shell achieve its vision to build the best fuel stations with the finest equipment at the lowest total cost of ownership and in the safest manner."
