Tanker ships are built to transport oil and other liquids in bulk. The managed vessels are all chemical ice classed tankers built in stainless steel; this allows the vessels to trade in the ice and to carry the most sophisticated chemical cargoes. Different cargo parcels can be loaded simultaneously and be discharged safely at various different ports.
Merchant ships especially designed to transport dry cargoes in bulk, such as grain, coal, ore in its cargo holds. Today’s bulkers are especially designed to maximize capacity, safety, efficiency, and durability.
Container ships are cargo ships that carry all of their load in truck-size intermodal containers, in a technique called containerization. They are a common means of commercial intermodal freight transport and now carry most seagoing non-bulk cargo. Container ship capacity is measured in twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU). Typical loads are a mix of 20-foot and 40-foot (2-TEU) ISO-standard containers, with the latter predominant.
Ships carrying out Offshore Services both in assisting oil rigs (Anchor Handling, rig moves and Supply duties) and in towage activities of barges, vessels, hull. These special vessels are designed to meet the harsh sea conditions and can undertake supply duties between land bases and drilling sites.
