Logistics BusinessSuttons invests in food grade tank containers

Suttons Group has taken delivery of a fleet of new, food grade, 20ft tank containers. The containers have gone into operation serving lanes between North America and Europe.

Suttons is more widely known for its bulk chemical and gas logistics and supply chain services but has seen increased movement in the food and beverage sector. Steve Lonsdale, Regional Director for Suttons Americas said: “Due to the increased capacity which tank containers offer in comparison with traditional transport methods, together with more flexibility in terms of production, packaging and storage, we have seen an increase in food grade products transported with tank containers. As a proven safe and sustainable transport method, tank containers can provide significant added value for our customers.”

They were built in partnership with Singamas of China, whose engineers worked with Suttons’ own in-house team to build these specialised tanks.
