We collaborate to create flexible and personalised solutions, and our culture of ongoing innovation ensures that Stolt Tankers remains at the forefront of the industry. 

We have the world’s largest fleet of chemical tankers. Our global deep-sea fleet – combined with our integrated regional capabilities in Europe, Asia Pacific, the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean and the US – provide supply chain efficiencies and added value for our customers.

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. Customers can also track and manage all their bookings in the MyStoltTankers portal.

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.
