Optimal Bulk Liquid Shipping Solutions

20-Foot Containers

The go-to international Flexitank solution has been 20-foot containers, but with a limited global supply, this strategy may not always serve as the best option for shippers. Due to a shrinking 20-foot global fleet, the rates for these containers can be unpredictable, fluctuating based on existing supply.

3-Tank Flexitank System

ASF’s 3-Tank Flexitank System emerges as a key solution. This innovative design allows for three 8k liter Flexitanks in a 40-foot container or 40-foot refrigerated container, optimizing space and ensuring the safe and efficient transportation of liquids. With more availability and higher quality, shippers can simplify liquid transport. The system's versatility is another key benefit, allowing up to three different product varieties in one shipment.

Trucking Solutions

Our 3-Tank Flexitank System can optimize inland logistics as well, seamlessly fitting into a 53-foot dry van or refrigerated van and making it an invaluable asset for road transportation. This adaptability proves particularly beneficial for domestic shipping of a wide range of liquids. The system stands out as a premier choice for transporting liquids within national borders, offering a combination of safety and efficiency.
