International physical bunker supply operations company Bunker One on Thursday (7 January) launched a new operation on the River Thames in the UK and expects to grow this business across the United Kingdom in the coming period.
The River Thames is an area that consists of various activities within the shipping industry and therefore caters for local expertise and experience, explained the company.
Bunker One has tailored this operation to meet its customers’ specific needs to be the most efficient refueling station in the region performing deliveries.
“We are delighted to have the UK on our World Map. It is essential to show our customers that we are committed to building up operations in niche locations by offering competitive and flexible solutions,” said Peter Zachariassen, CEO of Bunker One.
