GP Global expands bunkering supply network to Port of Hamburg

14 Apr 2020

UAE-based oil and bunkering firm GP Global on Monday (13 April) said it has now expanded its network with new delivery infrastructure, supplying the port of Hamburg in Germany.

Expanding their geographical supply reach in the ‘North Western’ market, GP Global says it will be supplying IMO 2020 compliant marine gasoil, all overseen from its Rotterdam office.

With a global network of bunker trading offices across London, Geneva, Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore, and Houston in The Americas, complemented by representatives in Lagos, Dar el Salaam, Nairobi, Delhi and Shanghai, the expansion into supplying Hamburg compliments GP Global’s current portfolio of supply locations as the group continues to grow, it noted.

Leading the operation in Hamburg is Peter Beelenkamp, who will be reporting directly to Chris Todd, Head of Bunkers, West of Suez, says the company.

Before joining GP Global in 2019 as Lead – Hamburg Bunkers, Beelenkamp headed the European Division of SK Energy focusing on their ARA operations and brings a breadth of experience to the role.

“As the bunkering landscape continues to shift into new directions, supplying for Hamburg Port is a testament to the success the company has achieved across its business units, in the face of a challenging global economic climate,” says GP Global’s Joint Managing Director, Prerit Goel.

“The Hamburg market has long been on our radar and we are very excited about the added value GP Global will be bringing to what has long been a static market.”

“Being a neighbouring port to Rotterdam, the setup of our new Hamburg operation is a great fit for our further expansion into the North Western market, and the world,” adds Chris Todd, Head of Bunkering, West of the Suez at GP Global.

GP Global’s notes this announcement follows its recent expansion of their trading operations into the Americas with the appointment of Gene Owen as President of Trading. 

Reporting to the company’s senior management in Rotterdam and based out of Houston, Texas, Owen is focusing on building a local team, establishing significant relationships and utilising his critical regional market insight to drive new opportunities for the Company.
