OceanConnect.com And Clarksons Agree On Bunker Business

Thursday, March 22, 2001
OceanConnect.com, the global online marketplace for the purchase and sale of marine fuels, products and services has entered into a joint marketing and services agreement with integrated shipping services group H. Clarkson & Co., effective March 31.

The operating alliance between the two companies combines the transparent marketplace of online auctions with the personal service and post fixture support of a leading marine fuel broker.

This alliance, which offers a variety of new options transaction options, was developed in response to customer feedback.

Several new transaction options are now offered, such as the ability to log on to OceanConnect.com and transact business without any further assistance. A second option includes the ability to call the Clarksons Bunker Group, who will use OceanConnect.com's online engine on behalf of the customer to deliver full market sweep, time efficiencies and the lowest available price. Users can benefit from online transparency without having to own a computer. Customers will also be able to work with Clarksons as they have always done, in a personalized and traditional manner without participating in an auction.

The new alliance will operate from OceanConnect's offices in New York and Singapore, and the Clarksons office in London where a staff of seven comprise the broker team.
