New York-listed global fuels supplier World Fuel Services (WFS) has announced a new physical marine fuel supply location in Tampa, Florida.
The company will supply fuel oil and marine diesel from Port Manatee to vessels in the Tampa Bay area through two dual capacity tug and barge units operated by Vane Brothers.
“World Fuel Services continue to invest in selective physical supply locations,” says Joe Gowen, SVP Global Marine Supply.
“When selecting locations for WFS we carry out an intense risk assessment ensuring we are able to deliver the highest standards of service.
“Valued relationships and collaboration are key, and we will continue to invest where we can work with port authorities, first class barge companies and our customers.”
