Reduce Your Shipping Costs with Flexitanks

Flexitanks offer a cheaper and more effective way to transport liquids in bulk allowing you to reduce your shipping costs. SIA Flexitanks offer a safe, streamlined and more environmentally friendly way to reduce transport costs for bulk liquid logistics and overcoming the problems associated with traditional shipping methods of shipping liquids in large volumes.

For example, when using ISO tank containers, Drums or Barrels, loading and unloading times are much longer, they need cleaned after each use and on most occasions they need to be shipped back to the supplier. Find out how flexitanks reduce shipping costs below.

How Do Flexitanks Reduce Shipping Costs?

1.Transport More Liquid in Every Container

Flexitanks can make large savings by transporting up to 44% MORE liquid in each container versus Drums and 15% more than IBC totes, helping to minimize freight costs. Flexitanks can hold up to 24,000 litres in a 20ft shipping container. For example, one Flexitank is equivalent to 85 Barrels and one flexitank can hold the equivalent of 30,000 bottles of wine.


2. Low Labor Costs

The easy handling processes of loading and loading requires less labor which naturally brings down the logistic expense. The smart design our the SIA Flexitank makes it a convenient process for customers with loading and unloading times reduced by up to 90% compared with drums or IBC totes.

The empty flexitank bag is laid out in the shipping container and a hose is attached to the nozzle to pump the liquid in. Once filled and sealed, the flexitank is good to go. There is no heavy lifting and no moving drums, just a hose used to fill the flexitank bag making it very efficient and cheaper in the long run.


3. Minimize Your Freight Charges
You only pay one-way international costs as there’s no need to return the Flexitank. There are no Demurrage charges on flexitanks (only on the container), again minimizing your freight charges. Check out our Advantages for Logistics Operators.
