Astomos deal gives Maersk Tankers traction in voyage management market


Astomos Energy, the biggest liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) distributor and trader in Japan, has chosen Maersk Tankers as voyage manager for, initially, five Very Large Gas Carriers (VLGCs).

“We are honored to commence the partnership with Maersk Tankers, not only pursuing efficient operation but also environmental goals. We are convinced the collaboration with experienced specialists will contribute to solving a global challenge and achieving sustainable prosperity,” says Kei Sakaguchi, General Manager of Supply and Trading department, International division at Astomos Energy.

The Maersk Tankers service, which will help Astomos Energy achieve greater economic and environmental efficiency includes day-to-day vessel operations, fuel optimisation and claims handling. It covers full post-fixture support from the time the vessel is fixed for a voyage, through its successful execution, to the closure of the voyage books.

“We are looking forward to this new partnership with Astomos Energy and are pleased that our knowledge and experience of commercial tanker operations can add value to owners across all vessel types and segments,” says Aditya Trehan, Head of Operations at Maersk Tankers. 

Maersk Tankers launched voyage management as a standalone service in April 2023 and will handle 12 gas carriers for two owners after this deal. The company is looking to sign further partnerships with shipowners.
