A long relationship with Forte has given Shell a strong presence on A-roads and at Welcome Break motorway services, which continues to this day. They were recently introduced to all Extra services, giving them strong market coverage. Larger forecourts also used to sell LPG supplied by Autogas however this partnership ended in 2020.

In 1966 Shell had taken an interest in operating what eventually became Burton-in-Kendal and Tebay services entirely on their own.

In 2018 Welcome Break were taken over by forecourt operator Applegreen. Although Applegreen do work with other fuel brands at some sites, the takeover was expected to change Welcome Break's relationship with Shell. The following year Welcome Break's new Rothwell Truckstop opened without any forecourt branding, and Shell's Deli was removed from their sites.
