  • Conducting market research
  • Visit clients and suppliers
  • Call customers, potentials, and stakeholders and work in our CRM and ERP systems.

As traders, we do not oversee the physical supply, but we remain in close communication with all stakeholders (supplier, agent & customer), ensuring an uninterrupted, smooth operation. You will closely monitor the oil market, regional supply developments as well as the availability of bunkers in key ports.
