Built to carry up to 37,000t of fresh and concentrated orange juice in bulk tanks, the Carlos Fischer is owned by the Brazilian company Aleuropa, part of Grupo Fischer.

It is not classed as a tanker, however it is effectively a four-hold refrigerated ship, each hold having four vertical freestanding cylindrical fruit juice tanks. Tanks in the aftermost hold are reserved for natural orange juice which is carried at a nominal 0ºC. 12 tanks out of the total 16, that is those located in the forward three holds, can carry either natural juice or concentrated juice.

The concentrate is loaded and transported at -10ºC and has the consistency of a gruel. Pumping and piping systems are complex and all surfaces in contact with the juice cargo have to be kept in an aseptic condition.

The vessel has accommodation for 30 people. A trim room and a sizeable swimming pool cater for the crew's recreation and fitness.
