Goldstar Transport

A better way to...

Fuel your fleet and reward your team

BP Plus and Qantas Business Rewards help this logistics company accelerate growth and empower its people.

Since starting Goldstar Transport in 2004, Sean Carren has taken the West Australian logistics company’s fleet from one truck to 140. But it’s not the vehicles that drive the success of this family-owned business – it’s the people.

“Customer-centric service, thinking outside the box – they’re easy to say and difficult to do,” says Carren. “But they’re real to us; our success depends on our people and ability to do the job.”

With delivery volumes doubling over the past three years (clients include Woolworths and Coca-Cola), the team has grown to 300-plus staff. One way Goldstar attracts the best people is through Qantas Business Rewards and its partnership with BP Plus.

Whenever a Goldstar driver fills up or services a company vehicle at one of more than 1,400 bp locations and pays for their fuel with their BP Plus fuel card, they earn Qantas Points for the business. Plus, the driver also benefits by earning Qantas Points into their personal Frequent Flyer account when they scan their Qantas Frequent Flyer card.

“Fuel and maintenance are huge spends for us – our current fuel bill per week is four times the cost of my first house! But BP Plus helps us drive down our costs and see where we can save. The bp coverage and facilities across Australia are second to none and they service our trucks across the country, including in remote areas. They’ve been pivotal to our growth – we wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”

When travel and border restrictions made the race for quality staff more competitive, Carren found new ways to improve the employee experience at Goldstar and to help his team perform at its best. He used the Qantas Points his business earned to shop tech at the Qantas Rewards Store and equipped a training room with state-of-the-art conferencing cameras and TV displays. He even gave team members smart tech so they can stay connected. At Goldstar’s annual staff awards event, Carren rewards his staff with Qantas Points that they can put towards flights and accommodation. 

“We reward our team in ways others don’t. We need good people to navigate the supply-chain challenges that come with being located in WA. BP Plus and Qantas Business Rewards help us invest in good people and stay in front of our competition.”
