Tropic Oil is Miami’s Source for Marine Oil & Fuel

Fuel and oil are what keep industries on the move. Whether its cars, trains, planes or ships, virtually every form of transportation and machinery requires quality petroleum to function. Nowhere is that more apparent than those who need fleet fuel in Miami. One of the unique aspects of South Florida is the large marine industry. As the Gateway to Latin America, Miami’s marine industry plays an important role in the local economy. It brings tourism, distributes goods and services and guards our coasts.  As Florida’s largest distributor of ExxonMobil lubricants, Tropic Oil Company places a great emphasis on servicing marine vessels such as diesel ships, yachts, tugboats, cruise ships and industrial ships.

Miami’s marine industry plays a significant role in Florida’s economy. Last year, more than 4 million visitors traveled on cruise ships which sailed out of PortMiami. The port is home to 13 cruise lines and more than a dozen cargo ship lines, making it one of the world’s busiest seaports.  The port is also known as Cargo Gateway to the Americas.  In 2013, more than 1,300 cargo vessels docked at PortMiami and the port processed 901,454 TEUs or Twenty-foot Equivalent Units.

To keep these vessels moving requires a significant amount of bulk fuel and oil including ISO 8217 to meet MARPOL specifications as well as high quality lubricants with the necessary Total Base Number (TBN). It’s why many of Miami’s top marine companies rely on Tropic Oil Company for their fuel and lubricant needs. Our oil compound is home to a million-gallon tank farm along with warehouses stocked with petroleum from ExxonMobil, Shell, Total, Vickers and Conoco Phillips brand lubricants. While it takes great man power to receive and distribute these products, Tropic Oil Company also relies on its logistics and analytics. Conveniently located on the Palmetto Expressway, Tropic Oil Company also has its own rail spur. This enables them to receive up to five 23,000-gallon rail cars of bulk oil at once resulting in a significant reduction of freight costs.

But you don’t have to own a huge cruise line or cargo shipping company to receive the benefits of Tropic Oil Company’s services.  We can also provide fuel and lubricants for your yacht or commercial vessel.  We can deliver fuel and oil to your company on the same day or after hours if necessary. Family-owned and founded in Miami-Dade County, the professionals at Tropic Oil Company understand how South Florida’s maritime shipping industry is run.
