Bunker procurement platform Bunker Connect has announced that it has completed implementation of an integration with BunkerTrust, allowing Bunker Connect users to have direct access to BunkerTrust ratings.
These ratings are projected on the live incoming quotes received from suppliers during a request for quotation within the Bunker Connect system, to support users in making better informed decisions.
“Knowing how your suppliers are performing is the missing link in making data driven bunker purchases,” said Daniel Kampmann, founder of BunkerTrust.
“Imagine booking a hotel online on TripAdvisor without having the ratings and feedback from previous guests. Knowing the performance, both in terms of price, terms, service, timing, quality and quantity will be the enabler for fully informed bunker purchases.”
The projected ratings are based on collected feedback from vessel masters or chief engineers, to provide insight on the operational performance of a supplier. The data will be added to Bunker Connect’s own quality statistics, which are based on lab reports collected from customers.
