Brenner Tank Inc of Fond du Lac WI, one of the largest tank trailer manufacturers in the United States, recently received an order for 130 stainless steel tank trailers from Indian River Transport, a food grade liquid bulk carrier based in Winter Haven FL. This represents the largest single order ever received by Brenner Tank Inc, according to Kevin Crawford, Brenner vice-president of sales and marketing.
"Today, more than ever before, Brenner Tank competes in a transportation industry that demands responsive service, excellent value, and guaranteed quality performance. Indian River Transport must deliver its products in the very best liquid food transportation environment possible," Crawford said. "We're pleased that Indian River continues to choose Brenner Tank as its preferred stainless steel tank supplier."
Crawford said that the majority of the new tanks will be used to transport orange juice from Florida throughout the country. "This was truly a team effort and this order couldn't have come at a better time," he said. "Brenner continues to develop cost effective, durable and tare-weight optimized trailers to meet the long haul needs of fleets like Indian River. The entire bulk transport industry has been negatively impacted over the past year, due to a number of factors, including high fuel and insurance costs and driver shortages."
Delivery of the 6,500 gallon stainless steel tank trailers begins in April and should be completed by the end of the year, according to Crawford.
