At STC, we're dedicated to guiding our customers towards the best transportation options when it comes to transit time, costs, safety and sustainability. We offer multiple transport options to support you with reducing your actual product carbon footprint and we help you optimize your tank routing for the lowest CO2 emission through all modalities.

The journey of a bulk liquid tank container from point A to point B typically involves various modes of transport, including sea, road, rail, and inland waterways. These options offer distinct advantages in terms of speed, safety, cost-effectiveness, and environmental considerations. Depending on the shipment's origin and destination, customers have the flexibility to choose the most suitable combination of ISO tank container transport, and our experts at Stolt Tank Containers are readily available to assist in making those optimal choices.

Our Flexible and Reliable Global Network

Stolt Tank Containers' multimodal transport network is designed to provide maximum flexibility. We maintain long-term, trusted partnerships with transport providers worldwide, ensuring a consistently high level of service quality and reliability, regardless of your shipment's location or priorities. We also work with carriers and vendors that offer shipping and transport options with alternative, cleaner fuels like biofuels or LNG or in a growing amount of cases even electric modes.

We are committed to helping customers make informed choices that balance efficiency with environmental responsibility. We offer various deep-sea carrier and route options and eco-conscious road transport. Inland transport doesn’t always need to be by truck. In many places, it can also be done by barge or rail, which produce zero or lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Rail transport is frequently used for moving bulk liquid products across vast land areas, offering a faster and more environmentally-friendly alternative to road transport. It can also be employed to reduce transit times compared to deep-sea crossings by transferring products overland to the shortest possible routes. Rail transport can further help avoid congestion at seaports, contributing to smoother logistics operations.

Sustainable Inland Waterways

Transport by barge stands out as a more eco-conscious alternative to trucking, particularly within large land masses where rivers and canals serve as efficient transportation arteries. By promoting the use of inland waterways, we actively work to reduce both our carbon footprint and that of our customers.
