Monjasa increases bunker supply capacity at the Houston Greater Area

15 Jul 2020

Global oil and shipping group Monjasa Ltd on Tuesday (14 July) said it is further developing its services in the Houston Greater Area to meet the increasing bunker supply demand from its expanding portfolio of customers. 

The Houston Greater Area welcomes 1,375 vessel arrivals monthly and sees marine fuels demand of an estimated 4.5-5 million metric tonnes (mts) annually, it said.

To further cater for increasing demand, Monjasa added it will extend local supply capacity and product loading options by adding an additional barge on time charter as of July 2020.

This allows the company to accommodate around 60 deliveries and supply 40,000 mts monthly.

In combination with improved access to loading products from five different oil terminals across Houston, Texas City and Galveston, Monjasa increased logistical efficiency and reduced costly waiting time for the receiving vessels.

With a dedicated Monjasa operations team handling all logistics directly with the customer, it is possible to offer a personal service and work independently of third parties.

“One important element has been to enter the market with a transparent operation and implementing

Monjasa’s global customer satisfaction programme upon each supply operation,” said Rasmus Jacobsen, Managing Director, Monjasa Americas.

“In this way, we get to follow up on each delivery and learn from the feedback and ratings we receive.” 

Monjasa Americas has experienced a significant increase in demand throughout the past three years.

From supplying 400,000 mts in 2016, the Monjasa Group Annual Report 2019 shows that total volume has increased to 1,150,000 mts, equivalent to a 188% increase across the Americas in three years.
