If the oil tanker shipping sector were to be described in one word it would be 'uncertain'. Branded as a ‘year to forget’ by BIMCO, 2018 has provided a tough landscape for crude carriers to operate in and, unfortunately, doesn’t show much sign of relenting in the foreseeable future.

“There’s a lot of global anxiety about what’s going to happen within the industry and it’s a really challenging time for the owners and managers of tanker vessels,” explains Lynn Coutts, ATPI’s Head of Sales & Account Management in the United Arab Emirates.  We talked to Lynn about the hurdles that those within the oil tanker shipping industry are trying to overcome and how an experienced, specialist travel management company (TMC) can help.
