Marine fuel and lubricant trading firm Glander International Bunkering (GIB) on Monday (23 September) says it has started operations in Oslo, Norway with the launch of a new office.
The Oslo office is the company’s eight location and aims to expand the reach of its main Norway office in Tønsberg.
“Expanding into the Norwegian capital was a strategic decision for the company to serve more shipping segments in important shipping hubs like Oslo and Bergen,” said GIB Managing Director Ole Rismyhr.
“Operating in the heart of Norway allows the Oslo team to get closer to shipowners and personally guide them through this [IMO 2020] industry shakeup.”
The Oslo office is manned by bunkering experts Lars Brustad, Sverre Vetterstad and William Tandberg.
“With nearly 30 years of combined experience in shipping and bunkering, the Oslo team will continue our high-standing reputation for safety and reliability,” commented GIB CEO Carsten Ladekjaer.
“I am certain that our presence in Oslo will provide the local support needed by shipowners in this important hub.”
