We have been physically involved in the global middle distillates markets for well over four decades; markets whose product grades are subject to global structural imbalances in supply and demand.
In this context, expert knowledge and the ability to manage and develop supply chains, with the inherent flexibility to respond promptly to changes in supply and demand balances, is critical.
In addition, precise and location-specific product quality specifications requires robust and specialist teams across each product grade with the expertise to ensure that the appropriate products are delivered efficiently in the quantity, quality and timing required.
In 2010 we launched Vitol Aviation – a subsidiary focused on the direct supply of aviation fuel both to the military and commercial airline industry in international airports such as London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Los Angeles and Kuala Lumpur.
