FCL Liquid Container Shipping

GP Logistics can you offer a wide range of services to suit every cargo and budget.

To complement the standard dry container services and the bulk tanker operations we offer via the Graypen Agency services we offer a range of options for shipping hazardous and non hazardous liquids. These options provide an economical alternative for smaller quantities but still allow for cost effective and efficient handling and of course via scheduled services and port operations.

ISO Tank Containers ‘tanktainers’

These are cylindrical pressure vessel housed within the frame of a 20’ ISO container. These are built to the exact same ISO container specification and so are fully interchangeable with container vessel, loading equipment and delivery vehicles. They provided a quick and easy method to ship all manner of liquids and gases (oil, fuels, foods, animal feed etc and offer a number of loading and discharge methods. Capacity range from 21000 litres to 26000 litres. Tanktainers are often owned by the shipper / exporter / importer.

Flexitanks – tank liners.

This is an innovative solution for shipping generally non-hazardous liquids such as: liquid foodstuff, molasses, non-hazardous chemicals, water, edible oils etc. Essentially this consist of a bag or bladder that fits inside a standard 20’ container effectively turning it into a tank. They are manufactured from a number of materials dependent on usage and provide a cost effective solution over ‘tanktainers’. Capacities range from 10000 litres to 24000 litres dependent on cargo type and show some excellent cost savings over ‘tanktainers’ . They do need some skill in loading and setting up the bulkhead arrangement. Ask one of the team for more detailed information, costings and relevant options.
