Transporting oil and other bulk liquid cargoes in standard sea containers using flexitanks

Global Ocean Link is a leader of door-to-door transportation on the Ukrainian market. Meanwhile, new and more efficient methods of cargo transportation are constantly being developed, which allows improving the quality of services in the logistics market. The carriage of flexitanks is one of the most progressive methods in the field of logistics.


Flexitank is a sealed, elastic container, which is successfully used for transportation and storage of non-hazardous liquid cargo. Technical characteristics of flexitank allow transportation of various fats and oils, including sunflower oil. In this regard, the transportation of oil is carried out in this way. Flexitank can be considered a good alternative to traditional tanks and containers, especially when it comes to small consignments, ranging in volume from 22 to 3000 tons.

Advantages of flexitank

  • installation inside the container provides almost half the capacity compared to barrels and bottles;

  • for transportation of liquids in flexitanks can be used 20 ‘and 40’ sea containers, also allowed the use of road and rail transport;

  • oils can be loaded while they are still hot (up to 45–60°C);
  • the cargo remains sealed and there is no risk of contamination;
  • relatively low price of installation;
  • flexitanks are disposable so there are no expenses on return shipping.
