Shell Hungary has decided to temporarily shut down five refueling stations in Hungary from August 1 in response to the challenges of the fuel supply shortage and the high sales volumes in the fuel market at the regional level. 

In order to optimise network operation and labor management, Shell will temporarily suspend the operation of the following five filling stations:
1089 Budapest Kálvária tér        
1112 Budapest Hetényi u. 3.      
2370 Dabas Pesti út (temporary shutdown from 29 July) 
8000 Székesfehérvár Balatoni út  
8500 Pápa Celli utca 6.    

According to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal, this will alleviate the Shell network's staff shortage problems as well. The staff of the closed stations will continue to work at other stations until the planned reopening. 

In addition, Shell will adapt the operations of one service station in Debrecen and one in Mosonmagyaróvár to the needs of its contracted corporate partners from August 3, following the example of the truck station in Mosonmagyaróvár, which opened in February this year.

The decision to introduce a new operating regime at the Mosonmagyaróvár and Debrecen stations, located at Gabonarakpart 6 and Balmazújvárosi út 5 respectively, was taken in response to the already significantly higher proportion of contracted partner customers, Shell says.

The company expects more predictable fuel distribution, a better service tailored to the needs of its contracted partners, shorter payment times, and a more efficient allocation of labor. The stations will be available to customers with a euroShell card.
