A shipping legacy
In 1961, shipping legends Clifford Mallory and Otto Glander founded CD Mallory & Co. in New York. The company emerged from a family history of successful shipowners and ship brokers that spanned six generations. It was renamed Glander International in 1980 upon Mallory’s retirement.
Glander International Bunkering became the birthplace of the bunker broker and contributed to the development of the worldscale system, which is still used today by shipowners and charterers when bidding on a charter. The company was also the first US brokerage to have a full-time telex operation in London.
After moving to Florida in 1991 and merging with International Bunkering Middle East in 2013, the company’s growth accelerated with offices in the US, UAE, India and Singapore. Today, Glander International Bunkering operates from 9 locations that celebrate its deep maritime roots with a vision for the future.

The bunker pioneers
Otto Glander was the finest tanker brokers of his era in addition to being the co-founder of ship brokerage firm, CD Mallory & Co. Besides contributing to the formation of the world scale system for charter bidding, he was also President of the Association of Ship Brokers and Agents (ASBA).
In 1980, upon the retirement of Clifford Mallory, the company was referred to as Glander.

Today, the Glander name lives on worldwide via Glander International Bunkering and symbolizes world-class bunkering services.
