Stolt Tankers

The world’s largest operator of chemical tankers

Stolt Tankers operates the world’s largest fleet of chemical parcel tankers. Our unrivalled coverage gives our customers access to our services around the world, and means we have the flexibility to respond to the changing demands of their global supply chains.

Stolt Tankers' fleet of 165 ships includes more than 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.

We work together with Stolthaven Terminals and Stolt Tank Containers to deliver a seamless and efficient ship-to-shore service. We also regularly collaborate with our customers to create bespoke transportation and storage solutions tailored to their needs.

Our culture of ongoing innovation and challenging the status quo ensures that Stolt Tankers remains at the forefront of the industry.

Tanker Trading

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

Ship management

Stolt Tankers’ ship owning team provides technical management services for all our ships, making sure 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 the highest standards of operation, maintenance and repair – well above industry averages. We also manage ships for third-party owners and provide assistance in quality assurance for third parties who manage Stolt Tankers-operated ships.
