OW Bunker, a physical distributor and reseller of marine fuels, announced the launch of a physical distribution operation in Australia. The move is part of OW Bunker’s strategy to further expand the company’s global physical distribution presence in key locations for customers, ensuring end-to-end quality in the services and products that it provides.
 

OW Bunker has leased a fuel oil tank in Port Kembla, New South Wales. The company will provide vessels with a full range of products including RMG 380 cSt and RME 180 cSt fuel oil ex-pipe and DMA gas oil by road tanker. OW Bunker will also distribute products by road tankers from the ports of Sydney, Newcastle and Eden. All fuels meet ISO 8217: 2010 standards, and distribution will commence from 1st April 2014. “This is another important strategic step for OW Bunker’s physical distribution operation, in particular as we look to further expand our presence within the Pacific, which is an important region for our customers. We are confident that with our proven global model for physical distribution, our understanding of the region and our good relationships with local partners, we can ensure that customers receive the highest quality products and services,” said Søren Christian Meyer, Vice President, OW Bunker.
 

“In today’s market ship owners and operators want assurances that they receive a fuel procurement solution that looks at every opportunity to improve efficiencies within their operations, which saves them both time and money. Our physical distribution offering is based on taking control of the supply chain and the entire process from order, through to final delivery to ensure that this happens. Based on engaging with customers and partners, we believe that this offering will be of real value within Australia and the surrounding region.” Port Kembla is one of the major ports in New South Wales servicing local coal and steel industries, as well as general and break bulk cargoes, motor vehicle imports and is a key regional hub for some of the world’s leading shipping lines.
 

OW Bunker’s physical operation will complement the company’s existing reselling office In Melbourne, which supports customers in all key ports throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
