Shipping activities complement our Group core business and form an important part of the supply chain. Tipco Asphalt shipping subsidiaries own seven asphalt tankers of varying tonnage with a total cargo capacity of 26,700 Tons. The vessels are operated by in-house ship management under strict tanker quality management systems. The vessel management follows best industry practices and strives to achieve KPIs as per the TMSA (Tanker Management Self Assessment) guidelines.
The vessels trade predominantly in the Asia Pacific – Indian Ocean range. All vessels continued to achieve high utilization in 2012 which was evident in the reduced vessel chartering out activities. The current ratio of asphalt trading volumes on owned tonnage vs. chartered tonnage is 3.5:1.
