“BP’s global sustainability frame includes an aim to enhance the wellbeing of employees, contractors and local communities. We believe innovative programmes and partnerships such as this are extremely important in ensuring Australia’s valued truck drivers, many of whom are also our customers and logistics partners, can access critical health support and services while on the road so they can continue to keep our nation moving.”
HHTS CEO Naomi Frauenfelder added, “We are extremely delighted to welcome BP on board as a foundational sponsor.
