New Design Flexitank to Hold Temperature Controlled Liquids
Shipping News Feature

UK – Having consolidated the brand under one new banner in October Hillebrand, the specialist in the forwarding, transport and logistics of beverages, is launching what it calls a revolutionary 40 foot flexitank, enabling customers to transport non-hazardous liquids across the world more sustainably and in temperature-controlled conditions.

Designed to meet each liquid’s requirements, the versatile flexitank can be used in both dry and temperature controlled 40 foot containers. Depending on the sensitivity of the product to temperature and its requirements during loading/unloading Hillebrand says customers can be guaranteed a flexitank that fits the exact need of the product.

The logical design of the tank means the product carried can also be loaded and discharged from a single point, with minimal residue remaining. It also incorporates unique and patented wave breaking technology to mitigate risk by dampening the surging of the liquid during transport and preventing container bulging. Jacob Moe, COO of Hillebrand’s bulk division, commented:

“This new flexitank is the result of careful research and our promise to always build solutions in response to customers’ needs. Born from the original request from a fruit juice producing customer, to find a solution for moving product in frozen conditions and a latex customer to move product in hot conditions, this flexitank was designed to manage any non-hazardous product. Whether cold, hot or ambient. This is a sustainable option for customers wanting to move large quantities of product in a Flexitank that is 100% recyclable.”

Hillebrand emphasises the new tank is ideal when a customer’s supply chain requires larger quantities moved in a constant refrigerated or heated condition, with the benefit of increasing transport efficiency and reducing emissions, with Cees van Gent, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Hillebrand, saying:

“We have successfully transported beverages around the world since Hillebrand was launched in 1844. We will continue to evolve the services we offer our customers, constantly innovating to answer industry needs and deliver a service that exceeds expectations.”
