Monjasa "Leading the Race" for Better Global Bunker Operations

Friday January 27, 2017

The Monjasa Group (Monjasa) today said it is "leading the race" for improved quality bunker operations on a global level.

The declaration comes after Monjasa has revealed it completed what was described as "the industry’s most thorough independent testing, inspection, and certification" process, which was carried out by Bureau Veritas S.A. (BV), and examined Monjasa's compliance with ISO 9001:2015 for Quality Management, ISO 14001:2015 for Environmental Management, OHSAS 18001:2008 for Occupational Health and Safety Management.

"From the whole organisation and especially from the upper management level we have seen strong leadership commitment to support the certification process," said BV.

"The Management Review Report is comprehensive and documents all relevant aspects in relation to the performance of the system."

Monjasa says it has upgraded its quality certifications to become the first bunker company to meet the tighter requirements implemented in 2015, which feature an increased focus on risk management.

"We always look to the future and are delighted to receive this vote of confidence in our operations from the most recognised and independent industry expert," said Svend Stenberg Mølholt, Monjasa's COO.

"In the current market situation, we see quality management and compliance as a prerequisite to work in bunkering, and we have decided to act in consequence.

Mølholt says Monjasa has invested millions of dollars in human expertise and the development of end-to-end IT solutions for all of the company's physical and trading operations.

"Monjasa declines several bunker fuel inquiries every week. Trading opportunities, that do not comply with our quality standards or are doubtful in relation to our strict compliance policies, we simply leave to our competitors," adds Mølholt.
