Flexitanks


Flexitanks are expandable multi-layer polyethylene (PE) tanks meant to fit inside a standard 20' heavy duty container. Suitable for carriage of most bulk liquids that are non-hazardous and within a specific gravity range of 0.85 to 1.2, this product has revolutionized the carriage of bulk liquids offering a cheaper and more cost effective mode of transporting bulk liquids that are suitable for flexitanks.

We source flexitanks manufacturedin a wide range, specially designed for the carriage of various liquids. Going against the 'one size fits all' policy which many other operators tend to follow, often with disastrous results; we supply flexitanks which are found to be most suitable to the liquids being carried.
