How Flexitanks Help in Bringing Down Transportation Cost
Minimizing the cost of logistics is easier if you are open to new ideas and are willing to adopt new approaches. Companies looking forward to lower expenses when shipping bulk liquid are increasingly embracing flexitanks. Flexible and light-weight, flexitanks help to reduce the cost of transport and come with added advantages. Rishi FIBC, is one of the leading manufacturer of flexitanks in India. The company offers to make customized flexitanks to suit the varying demands of the industry.
Reducing Shipping Expenses with Flexitanks
Flexitanks can be used for shipping and transporting various kinds of bulk liquid items. Flexitank containers are a good alternative to keep in mind when shipping non-hazardous liquid products. As compared to the cost of loading the product/item into the tanker containers, using flexitank as an option really works to cut back costs.
Flexitanks are very efficient and effective in their shipments and companies can benefit from it to a huge extent. As compared to traditional drums, flexitanks can take in 40 per cent more liquid cargo, thus helping companies reduce their freight costs significantly.
Using flexitanks, companies can load more in a standard 20 ft container, which further helps reduce the transportation cost.
You can transport non-hazardous chemicals as well as food and non-food items. These include wine, juices, types of oil, syrups, shampoo, ink, water based paints, lubricants and pharmaceutical ingredients.
Loading and unloading the items too, do not take long. Installing the flexibag into the container may take around 30 minutes while loading the liquid cargo may take 40 to 50 minutes. The items can be shipped by sea, rail and road although certain bags cannot be transported by rail unless they comply with the required standards.
Additional Advantages of Flexitanks
- You can save a lot on the ocean freight. This is especially true when you compare it to shipping products in tank containers.
- You can easily ship more than one item in one container. The size of the flexitank can range from 16,000 to 24,000 liters. Individual packing is not required since the items are loaded in bulk.
- Flexitank bags are disposable in nature. You do not have to clean them up after they are unloaded, as it occurs in the case of tank containers. This further helps to reduce cost.
- As flexitanks are made using fully recyclable virgin polyethylene, disposal is eco-friendly and costs are not high.
