Castrol® increases distribution of Castrol® ePODS™ in the Northeast with New Supplier Partnership


Castrol enhances partnership with Pilot Thomas Logistics

WAYNE, NJ; October 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Castrol, one of the world's leading lubricant brands, increased the distribution of Castrol ePODS, it’s newest innovation, by formalizing a partnership agreement with Pilot Thomas Logistics who will service Castrol's workshop customers in the Northeast Region – including Southern New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland & Washington D.C.

Until now, the oil change was just an oil change, but Castrol flipped the system on its head with a new gravity-fed system that ensures workshops can sell every drop of oil they buy. Castrol ePODS (efficient Premium Oil Dispensing System) is the first of its kind, a patented solution that has reinvented what has been around since the beginning of motorized vehicles. THE OIL CHANGE JUST GOT AN OIL CHANGE™.

"At Castrol, we are continuously looking to innovate beyond oil to help our workshops run better and look more premium, which keeps their customers coming back," said David Bouet, President of BP Lubricants USA Inc. “With the launch of Castrol ePODS, we’re excited to deliver a more efficient motor oil dispensing system that also adds a premium look for our professional shops.”


Today’s most commonly used oil dispensing systems are messy, inefficient and bulky, which challenges inventory management and clutters shops. Castrol ePODS has a premium look and enables multiple viscosity grades with no cross contamination in oil changes; adding efficiency and enabling faster oil change times. Efficient never looked so good.


Discerning customers want their vehicles serviced in an environment that is clean and professional, and Castrol ePODS meets this demand giving automotive workshops a premium and exclusive solution for their oil change needs. Visit for more information.
