Liquid shipping presents a unique challenge for businesses. When transporting non-hazardous liquid goods like food products, cosmetics, and personal care liquids, or even industrial products, outdated solutions like totes and drums can be costly and difficult to handle.
Modern businesses demand better solutions, and that’s where TechnoTanks can help with innovative flexitank solutions. If you frequently move liquid in bulk, or even if you need to send a one-off shipment, a flexible storage solution could reduce your costs while increasing efficiency.
Flexitanks from TechnoTanks are designed using a proprietary method with the highest quality materials. They remove risks of contamination and are stable enough to resist environmental hazards. Tanks can hold up to 24,000 liters of liquid, allowing for near-total utilization of a standard 20-foot shipping container.
Put simply; if you are spending money on drums or totes to move your non-hazardous liquid cargo, then you are not maximizing your resources. Find out why flexitanks are the ideal solution for your business.
To truly understand how flexitanks for sale can outperform traditional shipping solutions like iso tanks and steel drums, we need to draw some direct comparisons.
First, let’s look at the popular iso tank shipping method and see where it comes up short.
An iso tank compares favorably with a flexitank in terms of total capacity. While a flexitank has a maximum capacity of 24,000 liters, some iso tanks can hold up to 26,000 liters in a standard 20ft shipping container form factor. However, when looking beyond the capacity, this solution starts to become less competitive.
When using iso tanks for shipping, you will incur significant overhead costs that don’t exist with flexitank reservoirs.
Iso tanks were once the leading solution for bulk liquid transportation. However, the cost and complexity mean that these tanks are now falling out of favor for flexitank alternatives when dealing with non-hazardous liquids.
Compare the downsides of an iso tank to the benefits of flexible storage solutions:
We’ve detailed how iso tanks are outperformed by flexitanks, but what about other popular solutions like steel drums and IBC totes?
We’ll cover steel drums first:
In this case, flexible storage solutions are clearly more suitable. The same is true when we look at IBC totes.
Compared to both of these widely used industry solutions, flexitanks are clearly superior. Reduced handling and costs, and increased efficiency will benefit your business.
Flexitanks are designed exclusively for container shipping. Bladders expand to fill the space of a container, maximizing its usage to save you money in shipping fees. With a more efficient bulk liquid shipping method, you can increase your bottom line.
Containers are used for more than just sea transportation. You can ship a container with a flexitank over land or using a rail network. The best solution for you will depend on your location and the destination.
