What is the Pool?

The Tankers International Pool is an independent entity created to offer Owners and Customers the advantages of a large scale operation.


Why was it created?

World economic growth is dependent on availability of reliable and affordable energy. Oil is a vital source of that energy and some 40% of oil reaches its market by ship.


The Tankers International VLCC Pool was created in 2000 to provide a premium shipping service.  Working with its participants and customers it delivers crude oil safely and efficiently for the global energy industry.


What makes it work?

The Pool has built a reputation for professionalism, trustworthiness, flexibility and service. We believe that commitment, communication and creativity are fundamental to the Pool's success. The participants share a belief in the "Pool" concept with its emphasis on transparency and timely reporting. They benefit from the experience of the strong independent commercial team which works to utilise vessels to best advantage. Creative scheduling solutions, bespoke IT systems and motivated professional employees at all levels guarantee top quality service to our customers and competitive returns to the Pool.


Who is involved?

The TI Pool will always welcome new participants, provided they have proven high standards of ship management and their vessels meet the stringent criteria set for membership. The current participants are:
