An Intro to Flexi-Tanks

FlexiTank for liquid transportAre you curious about the materials used for bulk liquid transportation? As a business owner, your top priority is quality control. However, when you choose the newer methods of shipping large amounts of your liquid product overseas or locally, you may feel that sense of being able to control quality is slipping. One of the best  in modernized bulk liquid transportation is the use of flexible tanks.

Why You Need Liquid Food Tanks

We all know the drill: A single broken bottle on a pallet means the remaining products on the pallet are junked. One of the main issues with overseas shipment of liquids is the inability to control the comfort of the ride. In some cases, using expensive shipping materials to carefully wrap each of your products in a bubble is the only solution. For other companies, they find that their profits increase when they skip the extra shipping packaging and choose a liquid food tank instead.

While the long-haul shipping that companies like Kan-Haul provide are typically smooth sailing, once your product reaches its city of destination, the number of returned pallets of product can increase dramatically. For instance, if you use glass bottles to store your products, it is safer and more profitable for them to be bottled and packed in bulk at the distributor’s hub in the destination city. In essence, by using products like Flexi Tank to ship, you end up with more finalized sales and fewer broken, unsellable crates.

The Journey That Bulk Liquids Make

Valuable, consumable liquids like juices, wine, alcohol and vegetable oils are well-known for taking long trips around the world. On the journey, they must be kept at ideal temperatures and the container they are in must maintain its integrity. This is usually facilitated with pricey outfitting in specially designed freighter equipment like big rig trucks and international reefers, 40-foot or intermodal containers. Instead of being shipped for miles in their shelf-ready packaging, the liquids can be shipped in bulk inside a large tank bladder and get packaged once they reach the port.

Well-researched tanks maintain quality control

Time and time again, business owners that ship bulk liquid products overseas have met their shipment at its destination, taken a taste, and found that liquid food carriers maintain the quality that they need. This system has been perfected over the years with careful development, research and design teams to give products the traveling integrity that is necessary to withstand the demanding nature of being shipped by sea, road, or sea freighter.
