Globe and Mail (Canada): New truck stops planned by Shell Canada and Flying J

Canadian Press

Calgary — Shell Canada and truck-stop specialist Flying J Canada Inc. are combining forces on road-transport services and plan to invest over $220 million in 15 new plazas for commercial travellers.

The new joint venture will include Shell Canada’s commercial fuel-card network and Flying J’s Canadian travel plazas.

As well, the companies will build new facilities that will include the new travel plazas, which will sell Shell gasoline, and remodel existing ones into a comprehensive network for Canadian road travel customers — with showers, food and seating areas, banking services and freight matching.

“Combining Flying J’s high-quality services and facility standards with Shell’s nationwide cardlock network and world-class fuels and lubricants, highlights the best of both companies,” stated Les Markiewicz, manager of commercial sales and marketing at Shell Canada.

The amalgamation includes the operational services of Shell Canada’s commercial fleet cards, which were previously developed and distributed with TCH, a Flying J company that specializes in products like fuel cards backed by leading web-based applications.

Plans to open other travel plazas in Western Canada later this year are also under way.

Shell Canada’s road transport business is held and operated by a wholly owned partnership, Shell Canada Products, which makes, distributes and markets refined petroleum products across Canada.

Flying J is a privately held company based in Ogden, Utah. It employs more than 14,000 people across the U.S. and Canada through its interstate operations, refining and supply and communications divisions. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
