Tank container leasing for transportation and storage of liquid goods

Speaking of the benefits of leasing tankers. Leasing tanks are not only a convenient way to transport various kinds of liquids but they can also be used for storing several types of liquids. So, you can lease them for however long you need to store your goods.

Most containers including tanks used for storage are old shipping containers that are not suitable for transporting and carrying cargo. These containers are revamped to be used for industrial/construction storage, on-site equipment storage, and additional commercial storage.

A storage container has to be WWT (wind and water-tight), to keep your liquid goods fresh, and safe from external influences. So, if you’re looking for tanks be sure to check for the WWT condition. And also inspect them to ensure there are no holes or major dents. And be sure that it is not corroded, as this can hamper the quality and condition of the liquids. Also, make sure that the locks work properly.

Tank containers can be used to store both hazardous and non-hazardous bulk liquids such as:

Molasses Milk and other dairy products
Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages Liquefied sugars
Hydrogen peroxide Sulfuric acid / Nitric acid
Chemicals / Solvents Liquid food products
Heating oil / Vegetable oil Gasoline / Diesel / Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and liquid resins

Types of container leasing agreements

When it comes to leasing there are various kinds of leasing agreements you can opt for in accordance with your business needs. Keep in mind though that whatever type of lease agreement you choose to go with, they come with a set of standard obligations from the lessee.
