Inside Why choose us?

High and consistent product quality

Shell Bitumen is known for its high and consistent product quality.

Our field-based Technical Specialists understand the customer’s quality and regulatory requirements and integrate them into our quality control procedures.

We have invested heavily in operational and supply excellence and have many years of experience in leveraging our supply chain to our customer’s advantage. Our comprehensive quality assurance programme enables us to monitor quality of the product throughout the supply chain. This helps our products meet specifications within the customer’s agreed range.

Supply security and reliability

With refineries, plants and depots around the world, we are able to source materials from a far-reaching geography to meet supply commitments and help mitigate the risk to our customers of regional supply volatility. Our in-house operations team strive to ensure our customers get the right product, on specification, at the right time to avoid any potential delays to our customers’ project. We aim to have win-win relationships with our customers. Options of short- to long-term supply contracts coupled with reliable depot/terminal operations are designed to give our customers security of supply where and when they need it.
