UWL unveils its own flexitank
UWL, a US-based bulk liquid and chemical freight forwarder, has launched a new product for shipping non-hazardous bulk liquid cargo – the UWL FlexiTank
The innovation is now available alongside the company’s existing third-party offerings, increasing the range of options for clients.
Chris Booij, global and Europe director of UWL FlexiTanks & Bulk Liquid Logistics, sees this as an important addition to the company’s growing breadth of services. He said: “With the expansion of our bulk liquid offerings with the new UWL FlexiTanks, we are able to provide competitive products and services for our growing, global customer base in the bulk liquid industry. Our unique structure as an asset-based forwarder allows us to offer cross-functional products and services to customers in order to minimise costs and maximise effectiveness and efficiency.”
Steve Williams, regional director for UWL FlexiTanks & Bulk Liquid Logistics’ North America division, added: “Operating as a global Non Vessel Owning Common Carrier (NVOCC), UWL offers a ready-built operating network and infrastructure staffed with seasoned logistics professionals that are able to provide supply chain solutions to the chemical, food and logistics management industry on a worldwide basis.”
Suttons, a UK-based international logistics company, has taken delivery of a fleet of new food grade 20ft tank containers.
They have already gone into operation serving customers between North America and Europe.
Suttons, based in Widnes, located in the northwest England, is more widely known for its bulk chemical and gas logistics and supply chain services.
Steve Lonsdale, regional director for Suttons Americas, said: “Suttons is well known for its safety record and high standards of service, which makes the food and beverage sector a natural market for us. Our approach to safety, compliance, product quality and security are all essential attributes required for food and beverage transit.
“We are able to complement that ability with our knowledge and experience of intermodal bulk logistics and supply chain.”
