Our cabotage operations serve oil majors and major trading companies in the region to transport petroleum products from the refineries to various coastal destinations. The Argentine cabotage market is restricted to established local operators with either Argentine flagged vessels or foreign flagged vessels with one-to-three year licenses for companies with sufficient Argentine tonnage. In the Uruguay cabotage market, in the first quarter of 2020, we commenced operations for transportation of petroleum products through a Uruguayan double-hulled product tanker vessel. We have the competitive advantage of being able to operate in the Brazilian cabotage market through a Brazilian pushboat operator, Hidronave S.A., since Brazilian law provides a preference for the utilization of Brazilian-flagged vessels in its cabotage market. During 2020, our cabotage fleet transported approximately 1.9 million cubic meters of liquids (compared to 1.5 million cubic meters in 2019).
Our fleet consists of six product tanker vessels, one bunker vessel and one river and estuary product tanker.
Products Transported: We transport liquid cargo (hydrocarbons such as crude oil, gas oil, naphtha, fuel oil and vegetable oils). During 2020, our cabotage fleet transported approximately 1.9 million cubic meters of liquids (compared to 1.5 million cubic meters in 2019).
