Description: Since the 1950s, international maritime trade has been increasingly dominated by larger specialist ships. The liquid bulk carriers include not only the familiar crude oil tankers but also vessels designed to carry specific chemicals. The 'Stolt Emerald', built in 1986, is a typical chemical tanker.
