Minerva CEO, Tyler Baron, said: “With King Abdullah Port located in between Yanbu and Jeddah we are able to leverage our integrated Red Sea supply system to provide customers with a highly competitive total cost of bunkers, both for deliveries to vessels concurrent with cargo operations and while at anchor.

Minerva Bunkering, a subsidiary of Mercuria Energy Group, is one of the biggest physical provider of marine fuels and related services to ships at sea and in port. The firm buys in bulk from various suppliers and distributes to approximately 750 active clients in all main commercial maritime sectors, including container ships, dry bulk carriers, cruise ships, tankers, and ferries.

In June 2023, King Abdullah Port announced the integration of its Smart Gate System with the Truck Management System by the Saudi Company for Electronic Information Exchange (Tabadul).

More recently this month, King Abdullah Port announced a strategic partnership with two premier providers of marine fuel supply and services.
