The Impact of Sub-Optimal Decisions

Price port arbitrage

  • Focus only on contract ports
  • Inability to monitor volatility and supplier uncertainty
  • Inability to forecast forward prices
  • Schedule senstivity

Tank capacity - under-fill

  • Lower than industry or best ship standard
  • Technical dept not aware of $ impact on budget

Safety reserve

  • High reserves due to the inflexibility to adjust to actual voyage requirements
  • Un-pumpable fuel from settler

Commingling restriction

  • Strict policy with no alternatives considered
  • No risk control if commingling on board

Burn sequence/consolidation

  • Lack of calculation tool on board
  • Chief Engineer not in sync with future bunker port options
  • Challenge to manage three types of oil on board

Poor forward planning

  • Bunker buyer not in sync with commercial forward options (tramp)
  • Reactive vs Proactive
