We're expanding our diesel exhaust fluid network

We’ve been working on making life on the road easier for drivers of SCR vehicles in New Zealand with the expansion of our Z DEC (Diesel Emission Cleaner) network, one of the country’s most comprehensive.

Expanding our Z DEC network has been a deliberate move in our attempt to make it even more convenient for drivers to fill up both their diesel and exhaust fluid at one stop.

This time last year, we had 14 strategically located truck stops around New Zealand where Z DEC was available on pump.

Since then, the Z DEC network has grown to include two more sites in the South Island, with another on the way in the North. The Z Washdyke truck stop, in Timaru, opened with Z DEC in late-August, and the Z Templeton truck stop, in Christchurch, came online early-September. Our next new site, in Rotorua, is planned to open in the coming months.

All of our Z truck stops offer fast and reliable payment terminals, and are fitted with fast-flow diesel pumps to enable quick turnaround times for drivers.

In addition, by ensuring both diesel and Z DEC are available at one stop, and with the added convenience of being able to pay for both with Z Card, we’ve been able to create some real efficiencies for both drivers and the company’s back office teams.

Nearly half of our Z DEC truck stops are co-located with Z service stations, so that one stop experience means our drivers can combine refuelling and comfort stops, stopping off to grab a hot Z Espress coffee or some of the delicious food we have on offer.

For us, the decision to invest in the Z DEC network came down to supporting our customers’ changing needs and their drive to meet emission reduction targets.

Z DEC is just another way we’re looking to deliver on our environmental and sustainability objectives. It’s about offering a product that more of our customers are looking for as they turn to cleaner emission vehicles.

Z DEC is now available on pump at Z’s truck stops at Sanson, Sylvia Park (Mt Wellington), Turangi, Whangarei, Grove Road (Blenheim), Seaview (Wellington), Hamilton, Hewletts Road (Mount Maunganui), Sawyers Arms Road and Templeton (Christchurch), Washdyke (Timaru), Dunedin, Highbrook (East Tamaki), Pokeno, Napier, and Roscommon Road (Wiri).
