Flexitanks are usually huge flexi bags that are utilised for the transportation of various kinds of liquids food stuff as well as non-food stuff. Flexitanks are available in various sizes witha standard volume of 16,000-24000 litres. However, small sized flexitanks of 10,000 litres are also available. Flexitanks can be used for the transportation of any kinds of non-hazardous and non-inflammable commodities. Almost 30% of all the wine transportation in the world takes place through flexitanks.
