Safety is the company-wide No. 1 core value and is of particular focus for the petroleum and chemical transportation business. Our vessels incorporate the latest advances in environmental safety and hull design to deliver the most efficient ATBs and tankers currently available. Our vessels operate under ISM Code, ISO 9001:2008 and 14001:2004 standards. Additionally, our tankers and ATBs are vetted through the highest standards under the Oil Companies International Marine Forum’s (OCIMF) Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE) protocols. Our shoreside management structure is audited in accordance with the OCIMF’s Tanker Managers Self Assessment (TMSA) schedule.
