Company profile

Established in Bahía Blanca in 1973 Marítima Challacó S.R.L. first started supplying bunkers locally. Soon the service area expanded to cover Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia, the southernmost port in the world.

Meeting demand

The Argentine fishing market which had so far not played an outstanding role in the fuel market reached a turning point in 1979 when foreign fishing companies and vessels were first able to obtain Argentine government licenses to operate in the South Atlantic fishing grounds supported by local partners. As the eighties saw a strengthening of this booming trend, gas oil storage tanks were set up at the key Patagonian seafront locations of Puerto Madryn and Puerto Deseado to meet the significant increase in the demand for MGO and lubes.

Expanding international bunkering activities prompted the January 1994 opening of a new branch in Buenos Aires. Originally intended to handle River Plate basin deliveries, the Buenos Aires office has since evolved into our International Sales Department.

Group effort

Cooperation and teamwork with sister company JRI Comercial SRL spell increased trading flexibility for the Challacó group and have been instrumental in it developing into one of the main independent fuel and lube suppliers in Argentina.

Physical supplying strength
The Challacó group now operate bunkering barges at key locations such as San Lorenzo and Bahía Blanca and a time-chartered 5300 mt tanker, which is used to replenish the gas oil storage facilities, including a new addition of gas oil storing capability at Punta Quilla as well as for off-shore supplies at Caleta Cordova (off Comodoro Rivadavia) and elsewhere. Trucking and ex pipe supplies are also available where permitted.

Commitment to quality
In line with the group’s policy of delivering quality service, Marítima Challacó SRL and JRI Comercial SRL have put in place a quality management system in compliance with ISO 9001.2000 standards.

Satisfied customer portfolio
The steadily increasing number of owners, operators, traders and brokers placing their nominations with ourselves bears proof of customer satisfaction with our service and confirms to the staff at the helm that the Challacó Group is right on course.
