Our MFA membership will allow us to bolster bunker fuel industry support with our BunkerPro service, promote marine industry growth and contribute to global shipping sustainability.
We are pleased to announce that we are now a member of the Marine Fuels Alliance, an organization that provides guidance and support to its members across the bunker supply chain.
Through this partnership, SGS gains access to guidance, support and networking opportunities within the bunker fuel industry. In return, we will provide reliable, expert testing services while contributing to the marine industry’s growth and sustainability.
Joining the MFA
Anthony Mollet, Executive Director of the MFA, is thrilled to welcome SGS to the MFA:
"The MFA is delighted to have a company as prestigious as SGS joining the membership. Fuel specification, testing and addressing the impact of off-spec fuel, which can lead to claims, are some of the most important aspects for fuel sellers to manage."
As part of their commercial and promotion work, the MFA will assist in showcasing SGS's new services, creating opportunities for meetings and discussion.
Mollet continues, "SGS will bring much needed professional expertise to the MFA. Their global perspective, industry-wide analysis, data and commentary are of tremendous importance. We will collaborate with SGS to develop critical guidance and training materials to complement our work across the MFA to support bunker sellers."
Adam Goble, SGS Global Downstream Business Development Lead, commented, "We are excited to join the MFA – emphasizing that this partnership aligns well with our mission to support the global bunkering industry. We look forward to sharing our extensive fuel specification and testing expertise with fellow members to promote sustainability and growth within the marine industry."
