#PeopleofSPECTRUM – Meet Abhijit Palande, Delta Corp Holdings’ Executive Vice President & Head for Singapore

With extensive experience in the logistics and energy sectors, Abhijit gives us an insight into his profession and Delta Corp Holdings’ operations. 

Hi Abhijit, welcome to SPECTRUM! For a start, please tell us a bit about your role at Delta Corp Holdings. 

Hi, and thank you for the warm welcome! 

I’m currently the Executive Vice President & Head for Singapore at Delta Corp Holdings. As for what I do, I am primarily responsible for overseeing our operations and strategic initiatives in Singapore – particularly in the areas of bulk logistics, energy logistics, and asset management. 

Seeing as how Delta Corp Holdings operates in several business areas, could you give us some insight into each of these areas? 

Certainly! As I mentioned, Delta Corp Holdings’ business has three main pillars: Bulk Logistics, Energy Logistics, and Asset Management. 

When it comes to Bulk Logistics, we facilitate international trade by connecting end users with producers and miners. Specifically, we provide sea and road transportation solutions to ensure efficient and reliable logistics. 

As for Energy Logistics, we supply and trade marine fuels and lubricants. Besides offering a digital platform for marine fuel procurement and management, we’re also involved in the supply and transportation of such fuels – operating time-chartered barges that ply the ARA (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp) route, and the River Thames. We also serve West Africa with high-performance automotive, industrial, and marine lubricants, and are currently expanding our retail fuel network in East Africa. Another aspect of this business area is helping our customers manage price and supply risks through the provision of credit and risk management services. 

In the Asset Management aspect of our business, we provide technical and crew management for ocean-going vessels, drill ships, semi-submersibles, jack-ups, power generation plants, and mining gensets in Dubai, Copenhagen, Singapore, and India. 

That’s quite a thorough take on what you do! Besides having a drink, what else do you enjoy doing when you’re not working? 

I enjoy spending time with my family. I’m married and have one daughter, and we cherish our moments together. Outside of family time, I like to unwind by partying at Marquee. I even have a VIP table there, so if you ever want to join me for a night out, let me know! 

Can members of SPECTRUM get in touch with you to discuss potential business opportunities? 

Absolutely! I believe that great business relationships are often built in more relaxed settings. If anyone is interested in exploring business opportunities with Delta Corp Holdings, they can reach out to me via email at [email protected]. And I’m always open to discussions over drinks at our private lounge in Door XXV! 

Thank you for sharing your insights, Abhijit. We look forward to seeing Delta Corp Holdings thrive within the SPECTRUM community! 

Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be part of the SPECTRUM community and look forward to connecting with fellow community members!
