Leading global shipping agency, Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), has launched its new Bunker Optimisation product in Fujairah. This offers a combined port agency, launch and bunker quality assurance service in support of physical bunker supply operations in the UAE port.
According to ISS, “This bundled product enables us to provide a combined, cost effective price to our customers, with a multi-element service, delivered through a single point of contact.”
ISS claims it can offer significant cost savings as a single supplier delivering all services. There are no added costs for potential launch waiting times, or extending the scope of the bunker survey, it says. Moreover the company uses its own in-house bunker surveyors, and guarantees that a surveyor will be onboard for the arrival of the bunker barge.
ISS points out that it has no ties to any fuel supplier and complies with strict ethical and compliance guidelines. All of its surveyors, ISS states, are experienced ex-mariners who hold Lloyd’s certification.
