E&S Tankers

E&S Tankers is a joint venture between 2 of Europe's leading operators of parcel tankers, Essberger Tankers and Stolt Tankers. Both are strong heritage businesses with long proud histories.

Formed in 1924, John T. Essberger was one of the pioneers in the transport of liquid bulk, whilst Stolt Tankers started operating in 1959 with a single chartered ship and today has over 70 highly sophisticated deep sea ships.

These 2 established companies joined forces on 1 Jan 2021 to operate a combined fleet of 48 highly sophisticated parcel tankers all of them with stainless steel cargo tanks and the majority of the fleet having the Finnish / Swedish 1A, DNV GL 3 class. These features enable us to offer a safe and reliable service to our customers all year round.

We built our business on long term partnerships and with our state of the art fleet manned and operated by highly committed and experienced personnel, underpinned by continuous investment in the business, we aim to be the partner of choice for those trading in bulk liquids across Europe.
