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.
2020 was a great year for SIA Flexitanks, we enjoyed growth in all regions with many success stories to appreciate. Take a look back at our Year in Review below.
This was a year like no other with the Covid-19 virus spreading throughout the globe bringing untold havoc to the world of business. While the COVID-19 situation remains dynamic, we have been vigilant in anticipating and overcoming the obstacles it has presented.
SIA Flexitanks have continued to deliver for our customers, without compromising our employees’ safety. At the onset of the crisis, we took action to enable our employees to work from home. At this time, we have partially reopened some of our offices, but are taking a cautious and measured approach to having employees return.
2019 was a great year for SIA, as we enjoyed growth in all regions and the outlook for the flexitank market in general in 2020 is very good. We are now active in 63 countries worldwide – an unapparelled global support system. In the words of Richard Branson “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity”. It seems that the more we prepare the luckier we get!
There are many success stories to appreciate from 2019 of which are detailed below.
