About Marine Bunkering

Marine Bunkering was established in 1993 and has always focused on the local market : The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.

Local knowledge: The key to good services & competitive prices. An advantage of working with a local broker is the immediate knowledge of market disruptions, pricing and/or availability.

Nowadays congestions/barge tightness is also very important. Through our exclusive local contacts with the barge brokers, we obtain timely information about market developments and operational problems. Apart from having an excellent relationship with the local suppliers/barge brokers in the ARA-range, we also have good ties with all "shipping/bunker business"-servicing companies, f.i. barge/surveying companies, etc. We are also a member of IBIA.

By using our experience in interpreting the significance of the constantly fluctuating bunker market conditions, you will be assured of a good entry to market information and competitive bunker prices.

How we work

We are a pure bunker broker and shall never trade your enquiries. Upon an enquiry we shall cover the entire market and give you all the offers from the suppliers, not only the best price. Complete transparency.

Upon nomination we immediately place the nomination with the supplier. We never "play around" with your enquiry, it is clear from the start which supplier is involved. This excludes the risk of a delayed bunkering in case a supplier does not receive the nomination in time.

After delivery the invoice from the supplier involved will be forwarded and payment will be directly to the physical suppliers. This avoids having to pay twice if a party in between goes bankrupt (which happened in 2014 with OW)

We are one of a few bunker brokers in the world and the only pure bunker broker based in the Netherlands (working Belgian / Dutch / German enquiries).
