Purchase and sale of tank containers

The logistics sector uses a wide range of cargo containers, portable tanks and loading containers. This diversity can be traced back to the broad variety of goods, raw materials, products and substances shipped by the national and international transport sectors. Container manufacturers must meet transport industry requirements, and develop tailored solutions to every logistical challenge. This broad variety of containers is also reflected in the BTS Tank Solutions product range. You can also find a wide range of new and used tank containers at our site. 

Tank containers: a wide range of applications

Tank or cargo containers are portable tanks used to transport gases, liquids or powders in bulk. These containers are intermodal: their shipment involves multiple means of transport, and tanks can be reloaded over the course of a route without splitting up their contents. Each tank container thus comprises a fixed transport unit with a standard volume. A route may involve both sea and road transport. Intermodal portable tanks are used to transport a broad variety of products, and come in a wide range of types and models. In addition to applications in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, these tank containers are also used in other sectors depending on their specific functionalities. BTS Tank Solutions offers units with a wide variety of specifications.

Tank containers: construction and properties

We sell new and used container tanks for intermodal transport. All these tanks were built in accordance with relevant ISO standards, and are thus subject to specific length and width requirements. As a result, tank and cargo containers are suited to various modes of transportation with global dimensioning standards. Portable tanks are fastened by means of a frame or chassis, and made of stainless steel (frequently inox316). The tanks are finished with an insulation layer generally consisting of polyurethane or aluminium, occasionally in combination with rockwool. The tanks have a capacity ranging between 14,000 and 27,000 litres, and come in both single and double-shell models with flat or convex bases. The various models can also be fitted with heating elements, manholes and/or lifting eyes.

Second-hand or new tank containers

While BTS mainly specialises in the sale of used intermodal containers, storage reservoirs and supply tanks, we can also supply new models at your request. Our new and used portable tanks meet all applicable safety requirements and ISO standards. Every used container tank purchased by BTS Tank Solutions is subjected to a detailed inspection and issued the appropriate safety certificates. Naturally, your second-hand tank container is also valuable. If you have a used tank for sale, we can always visit your location to inspect the unit and assess its condition.
