Logistics BusinessHillebrand Flexitank Boosts Liquids Transport Efficiency

Specialist beverage logistics company Hillebrand, is launching a revolutionary 40ft flexitank, enabling customers to transport non-hazardous liquids across the world more sustainably and in temperature-controlled conditions.

The latest innovation is a versatile flexitank that can be used in both dry and temperature controlled 40ft containers. Depending on the sensitivity of the product to temperature and its requirements during loading/unloading customers will be guaranteed a flexitank that fits the exact need of the product, according to the company. This new flexitank 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.

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, says: “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.”
