DEVELOPMENT & FEATS SINCE 1988
The story began with the founding of Consort Bunkers by Mr Yeo Siok Keak in 1988. Anchored by the values of perseverance and integrity, Mr Yeo built the company to become known in the trade for its timeliness, reliability and service excellence. Focused on bringing value to its partners and keeping engaged in all areas of its business, Consort Bunker has established itself as a trusted independent supplier.
Supported by great aspirations, Consort Bunkers always keeps abreast of the trends and needs of the industry. At the same time, it continues to grow beyond its core competency in bunkering and barging. In the past decade, the company has transformed from a conventional bunkering supplier to a logistics services provider, and also expanded into freight forwarding for foreign and coastal voyages.
Consort Bunkers is headquartered in Singapore, with operational bunkering services in Fujairah, Khor Fakkan, Jebel Ali, Zhoushan and Ningbo.

Family and business values
Integrity and humility are important values for the Yeo family – as such, the company focuses on how it can adapt to customer’s needs while treating one another with honesty and humility. Consort Bunkers differentiates itself from its competition by the strong relationships built with the suppliers. This has helped the company find unique place within the industry.
But beyond all, the Yeo family sees success as a result of hard work, dedication, determination, and a passion for excellence.
Just as he is not afraid to think out of the box to achieve growth for the company, Yeo is not one to be confined by the limitations of a family business. “While Consort Bunkers started out as a family-owned business, we are open to having external talent lead the company, rather than limit ourselves to the skillset of the family members”, shares Yeo. Ultimately, this is a company dedicated to excellence – and this means doing what is best for the company for it to grow.
