Today’s biggest challenges for bunker suppliers are price, credit and liquidity. Take a typical scenario where a fuel supplier provides 30,000 tonnes of marine fuel at $650 per tonne over 45 days and the line of credit needed to meet this transaction is over $19m. Add to this need for the bunker company to ensure the ship operator is credit worthy and the potential risk of doing business rises.
For Inatech dealing with these kind of situations is very familiar as we are regularly asked to solve similar challenges for large and medium sized bunker suppliers. Our approach is to work with clients and create a fully integrated end-to-end solution for managing all essential aspects of the supply chain from trading, risk control and procurement to operations, inventory and sales.
