The Suez Canal is one of the busiest and most important shipping lanes for the European market. Mostly man-made, this canal runs through Northern Egypt, connecting the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea. Many large ships as well as smaller ships travel this canal regularly to trade and move goods. Therefore, the Suez has a significant impact on world trade.
Across the Mediterranean lies Turkey, where CYE Petrol is headquartered. CYE Petrol is a physical bunker supplier of MGO and IFO grade fuels. With Turkey and CYE Petrol not being highly recognized for bunkering as they would like to be, CYE came to Micro Motion for help establishing Turkey as a global leader in marine fuel delivery.
The reason? With a certified bunker solution, CYE is building confidence with their customers that they provide fast, reliable deliveries in hopes of attracting larger ships with larger fuel deliveries. Of course, they don’t want to exclude the small shipping business, but gaining market share in the large shipping industry is something CYE Petrol has been trying to achieve. Being MID-certified and having a bunkering solution from Micro Motion will reduce measurement uncertainty that ultimately leads to disputes and/or delayed vessel movements and build the trust that CYE Petrol wants to establish with its clients.
