PB Tankers
About us
Our quality of services is built on an established shipping tradition

Delivering Energy around the World

PB Tankers owns and operates a medium range (MR) tanker and Oil Tanker fleet, built and managed according to the highest standards of quality, reliability and safety.
Specialised in marine transport of crude oil, oil and chemical products, PB Tankers provides the logistical support and shipping expertise to satisfy our clients’ oil transportation needs.

We know that our success depends upon the utmost attention to environmental protection and apply the highest safety and security standards. The special attention we give to customer satisfaction and to environmental issues is confirmed by the certifications ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO 14001 for environmental management.

PB Tankers is also the first Italian shipping company to obtain RINA’s Competency Management System certificate in November 2015.

PBTankers made a strategic decision back in 2003 to invest in Ice Class 1 A tankers. The strategy pursued has led the Group to order more than 20 Medium Range Tankers, 51,000 DWT Ice Class 1A IMO II, at the Korean shipyard STX, for a total investment of approximately USD 900 million.

Investing in the Ice Class tankers segment has been highly rewarding. This segment experienced strong growth as a result of the increasing presence of oil products from the Russian Federation in the global market and the consequent development of trade across the Baltic Sea as well as the White Sea.

To support its commercial ventures, PB Tankers also operates MR tankers through long-term and short-term charter parties.

Our Values

Excellence through experience and compliance.

PB Tankers is a values-driven organization. Our business choices and goals are guided by a commitment to best business practices, people and the environment. Especially in the shipping industry where the economy operates within longer time frames, it is necessary to have established organizational structures based on recognized corporate and social values.

Excellence and Tradition

Responsibility and Respect

We have a great sense of responsibility to do business according to the following: marine oil, chemical and oil products transportation activities must be handled with respect for the environment.

We require a high level of expertise and team organization for every task, as this ensures quality and safety in transportation, and efficiency and transparency in business relations.

We consider both the human being and the personal skills when selecting employees and dealing with contractors. Stressing the importance of responsibility, we make it a priority to work with mutual respect for individual roles.

We strive for and achieve excellence in all areas of transport and logistics.

Our knowledge of the shipping industry, from the design and construction of ships to operations management, is the backbone of our success.

Maintaining our leadership status necessarily depends on our commitment to safety and environmental protection, management and staff work together to achieve targets agreed upon with clients regarding cost and quality.

We openly share knowledge gained in the field, incorporating technological innovations in the transport planning.

This guarantees the steady progress in PB Tankers’ performance as a whole and that of individual teams.
