Flexitanks - Container Transportation for Bulk Non-Hazardous Liquids
Reduce your shipping costs with DHL’s state-of-the-art Flexitank solutions.
DHL FLEXITANKS offer a safe, streamlined, and more environmentally friendly way of reducing transportation costs for non-hazardous liquids. DHL’s flexitank solutions overcome the problems associated with traditional methods of shipping non-hazardous liquids in large volumes.
ISO tank containers bring the need for return loads, longterm leasing agreements, and expensive cleaning procedures to avoid cross-contamination. IBC totes and drums fail to provide optimal container usage – increasing the need for packaging, handling and loading. Combined, these factors get in the way of supply chain efficiency and seriously increase your shipping costs.
