KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 12): Touch ‘n Go (TNG) plans to collaborate with Shell Malaysia for the implementation of TNG RFID fuel payments at the latter's petrol stations.

In a statement today, Touch ‘n Go said the companies intend to sign a memorandum of understanding for collaboration.

It also announced the complimentary fitment of 10,000 TNG RFID tags at 10 participating Shell stations from Feb 15 to March 31, when customers spend a minimum of RM50 using their TNG ewallet.

The participating Shell stations are: Shell Wangsa Maju 2, Shell Taman Connaught, Shell STN Minyak Kota Warisan 1, Shell PLUS Highway Jalan Duta Klang Bound, Shell Desa Aman Puri, Shell Jalan Kuchai Lama 2, Shell Kota Damansara Seksyen 6, Shell Sri Hartamas, Shell Jalan Kepong 2 and Shell Jalan Cheras KM 5.5.

“RFID is a key enabler for smart cities. Through this partnership with Shell Malaysia, we want to bring greater convenience to communities through TNG RFID technology,” said TNG Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Syahrunizam Samsudin.

“950 Shell stations have become cashless with our TNG eWallet. Soon, Malaysians will be able to experience RFID fuelling that allows payments to be completed at the bay, without any interaction with their mobile phone or point-of-sale system. Furthermore, transaction details are available immediately at the palm of their hands, through the TNG eWallet,” Syahrunizam added.

In addition, TNG announced a special campaign for e-tunai recipients on the TNG ewallet, whereby from Feb 17 until March 14, e-tunai recipients are entitled to receive a cashback of RM5 + RM2, when they spend a minimum of RM20 at Shell stations nationwide.
