Monjasa, a global top 10 marine fuel supplier, has time chartered an additional barge to support its operations in Houston, enabling it to service some 60 bunker deliveries and supply 40,000 metric tonnes of fuel on a monthly basis. They have also have increased their logistical efficiency and reduced vessel waiting times at terminals across Houston, Texas City and Galveston.


"No matter where shipowners and operators engage with Monjasa, they must always meet the same quality standards. In Houston, we have focused on finding the right solutions to the challenges met by our global customers and building personal relations with business partners throughout the area," commented Rasmus Jacobsen, managing director or Monjasa Americas.


Monjasa Americas has experienced a significant increase in demand in recent years. Supply volumes have increased from 400,000 mt to 1,150,000 mt - equivalent to a 188% increase across the Americas in three years. Panama, Colombia and Houston account for the main supply areas, and the company describes trading demand in the ports of New York, Philadelphia and New Orleans as ‘fast-emerging’.
