With the maritime industry in the grip of volatility, Glander International Bunkering is coming to the fore.
In 1961, Clifford Mallory and Otto Glander founded CD Mallory & Co. in New York, building on a six-generation heritage of ship ownership and brokerage. Upon Mallory’s retirement in 1980, the company rebranded as Glander International – and it was under that name that the company established itself on the US bunkering scene, contributing to the development of the world scale system – a method of calculating the payment rate for freight still used by shipowners and charterers today.
Glander International Bunkering relocated to Florida in 1991. It spent two decades there before, in 2013, the company merged with Dubai-based International Bunkering Middle East. The move precipitated a series of expansion for what then became Glander International Bunkering. Now one of the world’s leading trading and brokerage firms within the bunker industry, the company boasts a total of nine global offices, employing approximately 100 members of staff.
More than 60 years after that first founding, Carsten Ladekjær, CEO of Glander International Bunkering sat down to discuss the company’s successful past and ambitious future, with Energy, Oil & Gas. Glander International Bunkering’s role, in Carsten’s own words, is “to facilitate and enable the smooth movement of goods across the globe.” Amid a critical period for supply chains worldwide, it’s a responsibility that’s more vital than ever.
