Stolt Tankers

Stolt Tankers

The world’s largest operator of sophisticated chemical tankers

Stolt Tankers operates the world’s largest and most sophisticated fleet of chemical and parcel tankers, with over 70 deep-sea ships that are seamlessly integrated with regional fleets in Europe, Asia and the Caribbean; with coastal fleets in Asia; and with inland barging services in Europe and the US Gulf.

This unrivalled coverage not only gives customers access to the quality and reliability for which Stolt Tankers is well known, but the flexibility to adjust to the often-changing demands of our customers’ dynamic global supply chains.

We work together with our sister companies Stolthaven Terminals and Stolt Tank Containers to deliver an efficient ship-to-shore interface with the aim of reducing potential demurrage costs and facilitating agile and competitive supply chains. And we regularly collaborate with our customers, many of whom are the world’s premier manufacturers and users of chemicals and other bulk liquids, to create unique, integrated transportation and storage solutions.

Our focus on continuous improvement means that we actively follow new developments in the industry and are involved in several research projects, particularly in the area of new, lower emission fuels for ships. Our ships frequently serve as test beds for new equipment and systems and we encourage our people to challenge existing procedures. Through this process of ongoing innovation we ensure that Stolt Tankers remains at the forefront of the industry, particularly with respect to safety and environmental performance.

Tanker Trading

Tanker Trading consists of our chartering and ship operations experts. Our chartering team provides global commercial management services for the Stolt Tankers fleet. Recognised throughout the industry for leadership, experience and dedication to customer service, our chartering department is available to customers 24/7 through our worldwide network of offices.

Ship Management

Stolt Tankers’ Ship Owning division provides technical-management services for all our ships, ensuring that our fleet meets or exceeds the rigorous standards set by our customers, classification societies, flag authorities and by Stolt Tankers itself. All of the key functions in Ship Owning—safety and marine services, crewing, fleet management, risk and insurance, vetting, newbuilding and technical projects—work in unison toward this goal.

We manage most of our ships throughout their complete life cycle, from design specification, through construction, operational life, dry-docking, midlife modernisation, life extensions and, ultimately, recycling. This approach allows us to achieve standards of operation, maintenance and repair well above industry averages. In addition to managing ships owned by Stolt Tankers, we also manage ships for third-party owners and provide assistance in quality assurance for third-party ship managers who manage Stolt Tankers-operated ships
