Our business

Our customers, our partners

We are focused on our customers, their needs, and their expectations. This means that we reliably deliver on time, and according to specification, every time.

The services we offer our customers include access to a wide range of refined, liquid chemical and polymer products. We provide this access through trading, ship chartering, logistical support, and risk management in the form of financial derivatives.

We are your partner in the business. Around the globe and around the clock, we are with you from order to delivery, like a good partner should be.

Operations and logistics

We deliver refined, liquid chemicals and polymer products to our customers around the globe. This means we blend the products, manage their movement, and provide our customers with real-time logistical support. We do this 24 hours a day.

We provide the products, personal attention, and trading solutions that help our partners grow their business with confidence.

 

Shipping

Aramco Trading is the region’s biggest spot-chartering company, with a fleet of more than 40 tankers that average more than 120 voyages per month as of 2016, together with one very large crude carrier (VLCC) that we use as floating storage. Our team takes care of everything, from identifying the ideal shipping solution to tracking each shipment around the clock.

We are entrusted with handling Saudi Aramco’s domestic and international supplies to worldwide markets, including crude, refined products, pelletized sulfur, petroleum coke (petcoke), and petrochemicals.

We offer our cost-effective services to each of our customers and partners worldwide. From inception to completion, we are with you every step of the way.

 

Risk Management

We believe that risk management is an integral part of the decision assessment for our strategic and operational activities. Therefore, we aim to generate value while maintaining an appropriate risk profile.

Strategically, Aramco Trading’s risk framework is owned by the board. It ensures that effective audit, risk management, and compliance systems are in place to monitor and manage the risk of the business at all levels. Tactically, we have an independent body that establishes and enforces risk-control and ensures its effectiveness across all our operations. This body also systematically evaluates risk-control measures, reports risk activities, and provides the necessary checks and balances.
