The main activity of “V.F.Tanker” shipping company is export-import transportation of liquid bulk cargoes by inland waterways of Russia and international sea areas, including:
- Oil products: fuel oil, vacuum gas oil (VGO), diesel fuel, naphtha, base oils, bitumen, crude oil, gasoline

Oil products may be transported either directly or using a mixed mode (with transshipments in transit).
