The Hamburg, Germany-based liquid logistics company Liquid CONcept is investing a further €500,000 to once again expand its fleet of heated intermediate bulk containers. As a result, the transportation specialist boasts some 1,500 units of this kind.
These heated and fully insulated containers are used chiefly for the transportation of temperature-controlled liquid foodstuffs, such as edible oils, fats, and couverture chocolate. With a capacity of 1,000 liters, these small containers are also suitable for storing liquid products.
With this fresh investment, Liquid CONcept is responding to increased demand for food transportation in small containers. The cutting-edge technical specifications of the containers can be individually modified in line with customer requirements.
“This new investment in our fleet of small containers enables us to respond even more flexibly to strong demand for liquid logistics,” explains Ulrich Schnoor, managing director of Liquid CONcept. “We are therefore expanding our core operations and are able to handle even greater volumes.”
The 100 new IBCs have already been leased to customers. Food manufacturers primarily use the IBCs for the transportation and storage of liquid foodstuffs. These small units are also used whenever tank containers or tank trucks cannot be deployed.
The new small containers are being used chiefly by the food-processing industry across Europe.
