TFG Marine has delivered bunkers to an Ocean Network Express (ONE) boxship using a digital bunker delivery note, in what is being hailed as a trailblazing industry first.

TFG — Trafigura’s marine fuels supply and procurement joint venture — undertook the pilot transaction in cooperation with ONE, DBS Bank and maritime digital developer Ascenz, supported by the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

The transaction was part of the broader effort to digitalise financing services for Singapore’s maritime sector.
