Bunker Holding subsidiary Bunker One on Monday (23 December) announced they have expanded their US operations by offering physical supplies in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The expansion of Bunker One will be led by Sara Shipman Myers, Managing Director of Bunker One (USA) Inc.
“Bunker One has an established physical supply platform and enjoys a market reputation for high-quality customer service, performance and integrity throughout its operation,” said Sara Shipman Myers.
“The new expansion provides us an exceptional opportunity to further support our extensive customer portfolio with broad refuelling optionality for all shipping sectors while complementing our existing supply locations.
“We believe this expansion will offer our customers tremendous strategic value for their vessels trading in the US, US Gulf region and the Caribbean, in particular with IMO 2020 around the corner. We are 2020 ready with the ability to offer VLSFO, RMD80 0,1% and MGO 0,1%.”
The expansion takes place shortly prior to the transition to IMO 2020 and the global sulphur cap on marine fuels, notes Peter Zachariassen, Global Director, Bunker One.
“I am very proud that we are able to keep expanding our supply network. New Orleans has been on the radar for some time, and on the brink of 2020, this is the right time for us to make this move,” he said.
“We strive to be our customers’ preferred bunkering partner and the expansion underlines that this is not just an office strategy; we walk the talk.”
