GoCar and Shell Offer Free Car and Petrol Voucher to Healthcare Frontliners
To make travel easier for the healthcare frontliners, from now until 14 April 2020, GoCar Malaysia is offering 200 Nissan Almera located at 127 Shell stations across Peninsular Malaysia for free while Shell Malaysia is giving RM30 vouchers to fuel the journeys.
This initiative is done as a gesture of support for the Malaysian government’s efforts to flatten the COVID-19 curve. It also aims to help healthcare frontliners including doctors, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, laboratory technicians and administrative staff, commute easier and safer from their place of stay to hospitals, clinics, and quarantine centres.
Registrations can be done via the GoCar’s website upon verification of healthcare personnel status online. Once successful, registrants will receive a GoCar promo code worth RM 483 that can be used to book a Nissan Almera followed by a Shell Fuel e- voucher worth RM 30, delivered via email, on a first come first serve basis.
According to Alan Cheah, the CEO of GoCar Malaysia, each car is continuously cleaned and anti-bacterial wet tissues are also placed in each car for the convenience of all GoCar members.
He adds that body temperatures of all on-ground staff are being taken daily and they are all given a comprehensive cleaning kit consisting of face masks, hand gloves, hand sanitisers, disinfectant sprays, and anti-bacterial fabric sprays to be used while on duty.
Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd said, “With our wide network of Shell stations across the country, we are able to make these GoCars easily available to our frontliners at 127 stations nationwide, and at the same time fuel their journeys to where they must go.”
Shell has been implementing several safety measures and prevention guidelines such as hourly sanitisation, social distancing markers as well as tracking and monitoring the health of all site staff at its stations nationwide.
At the same time, Shell has contributed care packages to various hospitals and launched a nationwide donation drive with BonusLink. Next, the company is working on providing face masks to Shell Fleet Card customers and their drivers as well as to commercial truckers.
