For a decade, Monjasa has been sustaining maritime trade developments in West Africa. With 10 million tonnes of marine fuels supplied since we started doing business here, we are the region’s leading physical bunker supplier.
We have always been attracted to doing business here. Not because it is easy, but because it is hard. We have always loved a challenge and sought the opportunity to make a difference for our customers. It is in our DNA.
Therefore, West Africa also holds a special place in our hearts. It was one of the first regions where we set out to prove our philosophy of delivering bunkers in tough regions rather than just seeking out the mainstream ports. Our African experiences and extended know-how of operating in challenging waters laid the foundation for our global expansion.
Building trustful local partnerships
We no longer think of ourselves as a visitor on the African continent. On the contrary, blending in and forging strong local partnerships and exceeding local content requirements are top priorities for us. Africa is our home too.
By establishing our offices in Walvis Bay, Namibia, and Luanda, Angola we have taken important first steps towards positioning Monjasa as a truly local trading partner. Furthermore, we continuously engage in new projects in several African emerging markets. Nations like Liberia, the Republic of Congo, Ghana and Nigeria are all on our radar for extended trading activities – both offshore and onshore.
Afloat fuel storage enables extended logistics
Facilitating our extensive physical supply operations in West Africa, Monjasa deploys floating storages in the size range of LR2 and Suezmax. Our base port is Lomé, Togo, from where we cover all ports in the range from Abidjan to Walvis Bay.
Operating our own fleet is a crucial prerequisite for delivering on our promise of unparalleled service, flexibility and reliability in the area. As a global tanker operator, we are able to ensure that the tonnage and number of vessels are always optimised to our customers’ needs.
