Managing Director, Bomin Group
The shipping and bunkering sectors are experiencing significant transition; increasing and intertwined complexities and challenges that are serving to change the make up of the industry as we know it. At Bomin, we believe that while change can be daunting for many, it also creates opportunities. At the centre of this is the relationship that we have with our customers. In adapting to the changing nature of the industry, our focus is on building long-term partnerships with our customers, where we work hand-in-hand to develop fuel supply solutions that are progressive and meet market challenges, and the increasing demands of our customers’ businesses and operations. While bunkering, by tradition, is a commodity market, physical suppliers need to be more consultative in how they engage with ship owners and operators, while always ensuring quality, integrity, financial strength and sustainability. At Bomin, this is our commitment to every single one of our customers.
Head of Global Bunker Operations, Bomin Group
Access to quality products that ensure compliance is a challenge that many ship owners are concerned about, particularly when the 0.5% global sulphur regulation is implemented in 2020. At Bomin, we recognise this, and have made sure that that our global physical infrastructure and operations can meet the increasing demand for compliant low sulphur products, through both our storage and barging capabilities, as well as leveraging the strengths of other companies within the Marquard & Bahls Group, mainly Mabanaft and Oiltanking. When it comes to the future marine fuel supply chain, Bomin is solution agnostic; whether you need distillates, or HFO for scrubbers, or other low sulphur compliant products, we will work closely with you to ensure that your needs are met. Critically our focus is on making sure that the highest standards of service and quality of products are universally the same within every part of the Bomin global network. We have worked hard to ensure this seamless integration from Asia-Pacific to the Americas, and the Middle East & Africa to Europe, driven by our regional hub structure, which enables us to support our customers wherever they are in the world.
