The transportation of chemicals is technically and logistically different from the transportation of oil and oil products. Chemical tankers are more advanced in many ways. The cargoes may be hazardous and noxious chemicals or such products as edible oils and fats. A common characteristic of these cargoes is that they tend to be high value and require sophisticated handling for safety, health and loss prevention reasons.
Every chemical cargo carried requires careful consideration during the planning process and loading. Some are temperature sensitive some are semi-gases, some need to be inhibited, and some are sensitive to water. Checks also need to be made regarding the chemical ship type, (for instance category I, lI or III), tank coating compatibility, cross compatibility with other cargoes carried, environmental controls if required (inerting).
