Live bunker procurement platform Bunker Connect on Monday (30 September) said it has integrated BunkerTrust ratings into the platform.
Customers of Bunker Connect now have access to BunkerTrust ratings, which are projected on the live incoming quotes from the suppliers during a request for quotation.
“We have a perfect match with BunkerTrust as we share a similar ambition, more transparency in the bunker industry. It provides additional information to base procurement decisions on and an opportunity for a supplier to differentiate from others,” says Konstantin Kaminski of Bunker Connect.
Daniel Kampmann, the founder of BunkerTrust says: “Knowing how your suppliers are performing is the missing link in making data driven bunker purchases. Imagine booking a hotel online on TripAdvisor without having the ratings and feedback from previous guests.”
“Knowing the performance, both in terms of price, terms, service, timing, quality and quantity will be the enabler for fully informed bunker purchases.”
According to Bunker Connect, BunkerTrust’s projected ratings are based on collected feedback from vessel masters or chief engineers, giving a unique insight of the operational performance of a supplier.
The new feature is available with immediate effect.
