The MFA in numbers…


This is Blog #1, for a membership now above 60, that spans 22 countries across the world, in year 1 of operation, with an Executive Management of 12 who are helping to provide quality content across 6 Focus Areas.

Coming up in 2023:

The MFA will be present at a variety industry seminars and events. We will listen to the views of our members and speak on behalf of them when addressing the key topics. We will host more Podcasts, Webinars and allow Partners to present demos of their products and services. We will bring members together for meetings and social events to truly show the strength of an Alliance working collaboratively.

In 2023 we have already:

Hosted 2 excellent meetings with the participation of 7 member companies on:

  1. The KYC process, to consider the need for greater education for suppliers to address gaps in understanding and how to manage policy.
  2. General Terms & Conditions in sales contracts, focussing on key clauses where bunker companies must take greater care and seek help before agreeing confusing and complicated terms imposed by buyers.

And from these meetings … will follow clear guidance, resources and links to Partners for professional help.

A word of Congratulations to:

Martyn McMahon at GAC Bunker Fuels on his promotion to General Manager in their Dubai office.

The Malik Group for the launch of their new brand Malik Energy ahead of an exciting new development in the physical supply service. More to follow, as they will be talking with the MFA about this significant development.

Along with Malik Energy, we have welcomed on board:

Bergen Bunkers, Proteus Supply, Key Marine, Xenia Insurance, Amspec, Mid Asia Bulk and Bunker Partner.
