Flexitank/liner technology is changing the modern logistics landscape dramatically.

Today with the use of flexitank/liner container forwarders and asset-based logistic companies involved in rail, sea freight, barge shipments, storage and transhipment processes, are able to handle liquids and dry bulk cargo deliveries without heavy-asset infrastructure, additional investments and risks. Apart from flexibility insured by flexitanks/liners, logistic companies entering this market enjoy enormous operational ease. Let alone tanker fleet or tank-container stock which are difficult to operate, even to compare with traditional means of liquid cargo packaging (such as drums and IBCs), logistics company do not need to care about cleaning, stuffing, labelling and sending back of the tare. Flexitank technology grants logistic companies access to a large liquid and dry bulk cargo markets.
