Digital bunker solution and broker Bunker Connect International BV (Bunker Connect) and worldwide bunker suppliers and traders Delta Energy Fuel Supply & Trading BV (Delta Energy) are delighted to announce a new cooperation through a joint venture partnership: Delta Connect DMCC.
The two companies have joined forces to further develop and expand the Bunker Connect digital bunker platform. The next step is to take it global to any port the customer could require through Delta Energy’s global reach and team of seasoned bunker professionals. At a group level, Delta Corp operates and purchase bunkers for anywhere between 50-70 dry bulk vessels and will also have their volume bought via the digital platform over time as it is integrated internally. The Joint Venture Delta Connect DMCC creates global coverage to operators working with Bunker Connect and allows for expansion of the range of solutions offered on the platform.
“Our new exciting JV with Bunker Connect is one that reaffirms Delta Energies plans to be an industry leader. By listening to the needs of our counter-parties in a market that is leaning more and more toward digitization we took the decision collectively to add to our already unique customer offering by teaming up with a special group of individuals whose growth ambitions match that of our own. Whilst still offering traditional bunker trading services we are also very excited over the coming months to roll out the new online platform which is named Delta Connect” said Chris Todd.
Bunker Connect has become the leading digital bunker broker in Europe, driven by their proprietary procurement platform that offers shipping companies an integrated digital solution for their bunkering requirements. This joint venture with Delta accelerates Bunker Connect’s global expansion, so clients can benefit from Bunker Connect’s transparent procurement model on a worldwide scale.
“We are excited to partner up with Delta. Our customers are demanding wider geographical coverage, and we are delighted that together with Delta we will be able to bring our digital platform worldwide. It’s a great opportunity to combine the different skill sets of both companies to offer customers a full suite of services. Our teams have a great organizational culture fit and we look forward to roll out the joint venture in multiple bunkering hubs and regions in the coming months.” said Mounir Bendouch.
Delta Energy as a part of Delta Corp, want to continue to drive forward as a pioneer in the global drive for digitization of the bunkering and shipping industry. This is underlined by Delta Corp’s recent acquisition of Quantship FZC which is another new platform using cutting edge quant AI algorithms to unlock value in freight markets. Part of the Delta Connect venture will ensure Delta Energy’s bunkering processes become more automated and more transparent which goes right to the heart of its core company values. Bunker Connect meanwhile brings their hugely compelling digital platform to a wider marketplace and can take advantage of Delta Energy’s robust credit and business development resources.
Delta Energy’s physical bunkering locations and trading offices will remain independent and continue business as usual.
