Marine fuel supply is the largest revenue contributor to the Group’s revenue, but its profit contribution is the smallest due to its business nature. COSCO SHIPPING International has a wholly-owned subsidiary in Singapore, namely Sinfeng Marine Services Pte Ltd. (“Sinfeng”), which is mainly engaged in the provision of marine fuel supply, trading of marine fuel and related products and brokerage services for the clients. Sinfeng does not own any barges nor inventories, its profit is based on the commission income of bunker supplied per tonne.
