Jacob Panamax Tanker Pool

An eye on the future

Jacob Panamax Tanker Pool

In 2007, Jacob Tankschiffahrtsgesellschaft established the Jacob Panamax Tanker Pool (JPTP). Initially with five Panamax/LR1 tankers, the fleet was soon expanded. At times, as many as 12 tankers were in operation.

The pool currently includes a fleet of eight LR1/Panamax tankers, of which four are used in the 'clean' segment and four in the 'dirty' segment. The JPTP ships are primarily used as part of charter journeys on the spot market.

And Jacob Shipping is looking to the future. We want to grow and sustainably expand and refresh our fleet to a total of 15 to 20 units. In future, we will continue our policy of not being dependent on short-term trends, but rather relying on sensible chartering, considered acquisitions and sales, and further reliable cooperations and partnerships.
