Cross pumping operations and emergency services

Cross-pumping or trans-loading is the process of transferring a shipment from one mode of transportation to another. This procedure is commonly employed when one mode of transportation such as IBC’s cannot be used for the entire trip and you must switch to a flexitank or ISO-Flex at another point. This process is also important and used when you need to pump product from one damaged flexitank into a new flexitank.

We offer emergency services to perform cross-pumps in scenarios where the flexitank bag is damaged and starts leaking product. For the shipper and receiver, it is critical to salvage the product inside the damaged flexitank by pumping it into a new flexitank fitted in a new container and to reload the container back onto a ship en route to its final destination.

Our mobile response team is ready for your cargo. We have a strong hold and can service all of the Americas, from Canada to Chile including the Caribbean and select European nations.
