- Deliveries are carried out all around the clock (24/24) by all suppliers.
- Bunkering has to be done alongside a berth as bunkering at Durban anchorage is not permitted.
- The vessel agent is nominated to attend to the bunkers on the vessel. The agent will then nominate the vessel with the berth planner who will allocate a berth.
- Due to some of the berths being cargo berths only, cargo vessels are usually given preference on these berths as there is no dedicated bunker berth.
There are 5 barges in Durban that are available to supply bunkers to vessels.
