The use of flexitanks offers an economic and logistics alternative to the conventional systems used in the transportation of bulk liquids. Being portable and highly mobile, the flexitank converts a 20 foot dry van container into a bulk liquid transport unit that will allow an increase volume of product delivered per transportation dollar spent.

The main advantages of using tank containers:

  • With flexitanks, the bulk liquid cargo is transported at dry box rates instead of tankcontainer rates;
  • One way transportation costs;
  • The use of flexitanks offers better utilization of dry box containers. Approximately 40% more product can be shipped by using flexitanks over shipping product in drums;
  • The use of flexitanks reduces or eliminates costs associated with product packaging, filling, storage, handling and inventory control;
  • The flexitank is returned /disposed of by DMA at no additional cost to the shipper.

DMA responds to the technical requirements generated by the users product:

  • flexitanks are sized to maximize payload while insuring container and road weight limits are not exceeded;
  • multi-use and single trip flexitanks are available;
  • flexitanks can be insulated against both heat and cold;
  • load integrity / containment is increased through the use of a secondary liner;
  • containers are stabilized for shipment on the railroad;
  • DMA technicians inspect and prepare each container for flexitank installation;
  • DMA technicians fit the flexitank into container;
  • DMA technicians provide loading assistance;
  • DMA can contract with local trucking operators for transport of the container from the pier to the load site.
