The UPT Pools comprise modern, double hull product tankers in the 37/42,000 dwt size bracket (UPT Handy Pool) as well as between 70,000 and 85,000 dwt (UPT Panamax Pool)
The UPT Pool Participants include traditional shipowners as well as financial institutions. Partners who have committed their tankers to UPT include Schoeller Holdings/Columbia Shipmanagement, Hartmann/Donnelly Tanker Management, CONTI Reederei, GEBAB, König & Cie., Salamon AG and Blackstone/Tufton. UPT has been very successful in delivering outstanding fleet performance to both its partners and customers. The key to the success is an elaborate employment strategy for the vessels coupled with a strong service mentality. Size of fleet, market know-how and alertness bring additional values to the UPT operation resulting in superior financial and operational performance.
UPT Pool Members benefit from regular cash flows, a well-balanced third-party pool assessment scheme and constant performance monitoring.
