Flexitanks Outperform Traditional Bulk Liquid Transportation Tanks

With safe, secure, and affordable shipping storage solutions, you can maintain the integrity of your cargo while avoiding incidents.

Flexitanks outperform traditional bulk liquid transportation tanks by a significant margin. All you need to do is look at the comparisons to common container liquid storage and shipping options to see the difference.

  • 55 Gallon Drums have been used extensively for the transportation of bulk liquids over the years. They’re durable and with 80 drums in a single container, it’s possible to ship up to 16,000 liters. However, drums are now seen as an environmental risk, they’re wasteful in terms of the space they take up and the materials that are used to create them, and they require cleaning. The cost is high, especially because drums need to be returned to the point of origin.

  • IBC Totes can be palletized and with the right configuration, it’s possible to fill a standard shipping container with 21,000 liters of a product. However, just like drums, totes require cleaning and an extensive amount of handling. Cleaning and servicing are both costly and IBC totes need to be returned or stored after a shipment. This adds significant logistical complexity and cost that can reduce the bottom line of your business.

  • ISO Tanks are efficient, but they have been superseded by Flexitanks as bulk liquid transport solutions. An ISO tank can store up to 26,000 liters of liquid for either transportation or storage at a warehouse or similar facility. Each ISO tank comes with a high leasing cost and must be returned to base for cleaning and service. This essentially doubles the cost of bulk liquid transportation. Even if you purchase your own tanks, you’ll take on significant costs for maintenance, cleaning, and transporting empty tanks around after shipping your products.

Let’s compare all of these options to Flexitanks…

Techno Tanks™ Flexitanks are a more cost-efficient alternative to traditional containers. They are used to convert standard 20 ft. shipping containers into bulk liquid containers that store up to 24,000 liters. The tare weight is much lower than any of the three solutions mentioned above. Flexitanks don’t need to be sent back to base because they are recyclable. There’s no expensive round-trip lease, which significantly reduces your overhead and boosts your bottom line.

Safety is just as important as efficiency. Techno Group USA will ensure that your next shipment is fully secure and compliant with relevant rules and regulations.
