Moreover, the situation had the potential to get worse. It was not possible to stop or divert the supply, since many of the ISO tanks had already arrived at Bangkok, while others were on the water, or at the transhipment port in Singapore.
Thankfully, there was an innovative solution at hand.
Realizing the problems facing the client, all the liquids were decanted from ISO Tanks into flexitanks, IBC’s and drums to lower the demurrage and detention costs. The IBCs and Drums were stored in a secure warehouse, and delivered upon instruction.
All other incoming shipments in transit were reworked into flexitanks and stored in locations ready for delivery. The entire logistics process was managed for the customer, meaning that the client could focus on sales rather than on logistics and inventory management.
