The transportation of energy will remain of fundamental importance over the decades to come. We are here to facilitate it, contributing to meeting society's energy needs. We and our partners transports refined oil products around the world, moving, for example, the gasoline and diesel for our cars, jet fuel for the planes we travel in and fuel for heating, and, when processed, a vital part of our clothes, mobile phones and children’s toys. With over 161 product tanker vessels in operation across five segments: Intermediate, Handy, MR, LR2 and Aframax. We and our partners owns 80, charters 23 and commercially manages 58.
All vessels and terminals interacting with us and our company and direct partners must be approved through vetting teams.
Vessels are screened against the latest inspection carried out as well as the owner's profile, terminal and operational feedback, market intelligence, casualty data, Port State Control inspections and any other information held by the logistics team at that time. Depending on the circumstances, the inspection can be carried out by another OCIMF (Oil Companies' International Marine Forum) member company could be considered as part of the screening process.
When a vessel is proposed for business, unless otherwise notified, the vessel must have a current operational inspection report that is less than 6 months old. The inspections will be carried out on vessels where there is added value and increased assurance to us and our partners.
At the time of the screening of the vessel the owner’s profile, terminal and operational feedback, market intelligence, casualty data, Port State Control inspections for the vessel are scrutinised by the team.
Additional requirements include a 'high risk' observation list utilised to identify issues of serious concern.
Our team helps ensure that sufficient inspection data is available to provide safe shipping solutions for all marine activity.
