We believe purchasing bunkers is more than fixing the lowest price at a certain moment. Our goal is to advise shipowners and charterers on both timing and location, by investigating the vessel’s schedule, routing, and fuel consumption. In close co-operation with our customers, we try to determine the best place, time, and quantity to be delivered to minimize fuel costs and maximize efficiency. This can be achieved by using our extensive worldwide network of top suppliers, as well as our state-of-the-art information systems, which allow us to monitor (and to some extent predict) market movements. We believe this proactive approach (short communication lines, swift response, professional team) will ultimately be of great benefit to the fuel purchaser. After all, these days fuel costs account for a major part of the daily cost of your vessels!
