Offering an efficient approach to transporting and storing non-hazardous liquid bulk cargoes SGS’s flexitank services are agile and cost-effective.

Container cargo ship

Flexitanks are an alternative to drums, intermediate bulk carriers (IBCs) and ISO containers. They cost less, weigh less, and allow you to take advantage of economies-of-scale when shipping your products.

Flexitanks from SGS are single-use, require no positioning costs, and generate no waste water from being cleaned out. They are recyclable and compliant with global major health and safety regulations.

Installation of flexitanks and quality control procedures are handled with product and cargo verification by SGS, at any point when required. We help ensure shipments are protected by performing a Flexitank Installation Control Checklist for every flexitank solution we complete. All installations are insured, and cargoes covered for 110% of cargo value.
