VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Chevron Delo truck is back in Canada, and will be visiting the provinces of New Brunswick and Newfoundland for the first time during its three-week tour.
The truck will make 11 appearances in support of Chevron lubricant marketers and customers, with stops slated for Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.
The tour kicks off today with a stop at Black Dog in Morrisburg, Ont.
“The Delo Truck is an educational tool that engages customers and initiates dialog on a number of key market issues,” said Deanna Eckford, area business manager, Chevron Lubricants Canada. “Chevron is revisiting Eastern Canada this month, with stops in New Brunswick and Newfoundland for the first time, to further its commitment to customers and marketers in the Canadian region.
