Tanker is defined as a ship that is particularly designed and constructed to transport liquid cargoes. The general impression of a tanker is a huge vessel steaming from the Middle East to consumer countries full of crude oil to be refined. But the tanker trade is much larger and much more complex than that. Crude oil is just a part of it; a large part, but there are many other elements. Commonly, liquid cargo types that are carried in tankers are:
1. Crude oil
2. Refined oil products
5. Vegetable oils and other food oils
