Gunvor has evolved strategically to become one of the world’s leading independent commodities trading houses.

Gunvor has evolved strategically to become one of the world’s leading independent commodities trading houses.

Gunvor was founded in 2000 as a merchant of crude oil and oil products. From the very beginning we differentiated ourselves by committing to long-term business relationships and the application of innovative trading solutions. By combining our regional market knowledge with global logistics we have earned a reputation for reliably acquiring, marketing and moving energy commodities from areas of surplus to those with greatest demand.

While Gunvor remains a physical trader at heart, we have strategically invested in upstream, midstream and downstream assets to create a platform for international expansion. Today, Gunvor serves an important role in helping to smooth worldwide energy markets. We source crude oil and refined oil products from more than 35 countries, have industrial assets worth in excess of US $2 billion, and work with more than 75 global financial institutions, balanced across Asia-Pacific, the Americas, the Middle East and Europe.

Our investments and wholly-owned assets provide greater control over commodity sourcing and distribution, create a foundation for diversified income streams, and give us a significant competitive advantage in the worldwide marketplace.
