• Bunker disputes – ‘real life’ lessons put into practice

A significant proportion of bunker deliveries every month result in disputes of quality or quantity.
The potential financial loss to both the shipping and bunker industries runs to many millions of
dollars every year. With the increasing cost of bunkers as part of operating costs, avoiding disputes
is an essential component of good business practice.

Parties to bunker disputes could significantly reduce the risk of dispute before the event by:

• Putting correct shipboard practices and risk management procedures into place
• Understanding and drafting tighter contracts
• Managing fuel specifications, fuel handling and safety correctly

As part of the training for management of the whole bunker operation, this seminar is an essential
tool in the armoury of the bunker professional.
