The flexitank is a non-hazardous liquid transport system very interesting both for cost and for environmental reasons. Its main advantages are:

Flexitank vs Isotank

  • Increased availability: the flexitank can be positioned anywhere in the world within days and in any case, it is much cheaper to maintain an available stock than the isotanks. Instead, Isotanks must be cleaned and repositioned once used, which can not always be available.
  • Best cost: there are many routes where the isotanque once reaches its destination and is empty, should be sent vacuum to another site because there is no return loads. The customer may not know this, but in practice ends up paying the cost of returning empty. By using the flexitank, it is always much easier to reuse a standard shipping container.

Drums or IBCs vs Flexitank

  • Best cost: in a sea container with flexitank can get several thousand liters more than drums, which directly affects the logistics cost.
  • Ease of handling: it is much easier, cheaper and safe to handle a hose than drums or IBCs.
  • Low environmental impact: the flexitank is made of 100% recyclable materials.
