#1 Feb 16, 2011
ChemLogix Global LLC ( www.chemlogix.com ) recently added 50 new ISO tank containers to its BulkTainer operation, an expansion beyond the 20 tanks added by the company last year to support the growing business. Since acquiring the BulkTainer operation from Union Pacific Railroad in April 2008, ChemLogix Global has continued optimizing customer logistics operations with state-of-the-art ISO tanks and equipment in addition to enhancing customer service. The newer, lightweight tanks replace some older tanks and add new capacity to meet customer growing demands.
Intermodal ISO tanks are used to transport bulk liquids long distances by integrating truck, rail and ocean modes of transport. A single intermodal train takes up to 280 trucks off our highways, reducing both traffic congestion and pollution.
According to a recent corporate blog post by Stephen Hamilton, Managing Director, ChemLogix Global,“Intermodal transportation is a hot topic these days as chemical shippers look for ways to reduce costs, carbon footprint and freight safety concerns. When considering the merits of intermodal transportation, chemical shippers should also consider the benefits offered by ISO tank containers associated with this mode of transportation. While Over The Road (OTR) tank trucks still dominate the roadways in transporting liquid chemical freight, ISO tank containers are becoming more widely used as shippers convert to intermodal to transport freight through a combination of truck, rail and sea.”
ChemLogix Global anticipates future business growth as more chemical shippers understand the economic and operational benefits associated with intermodal transportation. In addition to offering state-of-the-art ISO tanks and equipment, ChemLogix Global’s transportation management team offers over 75 years of combined experience, to provide best-in-class customer service and very competitive rates.
