South Australia-based Peregrine Corporation has unveiled a new concept for its convenience chain On The Run (OTR) on Port Wakefield Road in Bolivar.

The construction of the OTR Port Wakefield Road site was the largest single investment to date made by the Peregrine Corporation in building an OTR convenience store, and caters for the B double and road train trucks up to 36.5 metres in length.

Built on more than 3 hectares, the store offers 24 hour services including a Krispy Kreme factory and drive through retail store, Oporto Chicken, Wok in a Box, state of the art car washing, a supermarket and Brumby’s bakery. Special trucking facilities include showers, truckies lounge and a truck fueling area under a dedicated canopy that has BP Ultimate Diesel, hi flow diesel and AdBlue, a fluid used to help trucks reduce their emissions.

Michaela Webster, OTR chief operating officer, said: “This site is giving truck drivers a great facility where they are able to stop, refuel, refresh and rest.”

“We want to give our customers the best facilities we can and are already fine tuning some aspects like where the truck drivers park to sleep so noise for them is kept to a minimum.”

The OTR fuel card can also be used at the site, it is accepted at more than 130 OTR sites around South Australia and nationally through the BP network offering flexible invoicing and payment terms and vehicle performance analysis reports for companies.

“The building of this OTR store has created important jobs for South Australian’s across construction, food manufacturing and retail sectors,” Webster said.

“We are an innovative and dynamic family business that is proud to be generating jobs and investing in the future of South Australia.”
