THE UNIBROS WORLD
The group is made up of separate but affiliated companies that are active in the trading of refined and specialized products such as bitumen LPG and Bunkering. To support its business, the group has invested in specialized vessels and in assets of the operating region investing directly into areas that are complementary to core shipping and trading activities.
Through a network of companies with bitumen storage in the Canary Islands, gas filling stations in Cameroon and terminals of bulk petroleum product tanks in Nigeria, the group has created a large network that requires a considerable vessel carrying capacity.
