The Hoyer Group plans to renew its global fleet of tank containers with around 3,000 tanks by the end of the year, according to the company.
Th refresh will help Hoyer meet the demand for specialized equipment used for handling chemical products and food-grade liquids in European over-the-road and intermodal transport, as well as overseas logistics.
“Our investment in around 3,000 new tank containers underlines our commitment to our customers and our obligation to put forward innovative solutions for the ever-changing marketplace,” Björn Schniederkötter, Hoyer CEO, said in a news release. “We look forward to modernizing our fleet and strengthening our presence in various markets to continue offering first-class logistics services along the whole of the supply chain.”
Hoyer sets high standards for sustainable transport solutions, the company added. When selecting production partners, the group also emphasizes quality, and compliance with international safety and environmental regulations. Accordingly, the new tank containers are being produced by leading manufacturers in South Africa and China to meet these high standards. The delivery includes special tanks for chemicals, as well as tanks with specifications for foodstuffs. The new tanks can be used in many ways, enabling the safe and efficient transport of a wide range of liquid goods. This step will enable Hoyer to increase its flexibility in global availability, and to better fulfil new product and customer requirements.
