Discover Stolt Tank Containers' strategic vision, customer-focused innovations and commitment to sustainability in their global depot network.

Our global depot strategy aims to position the company as the first-choice provider of depot services in the industry. This vision aligns with the company's overarching mission to grow by offering the safest, most efficient, and sustainable services to logistic service providers. By adhering to the highest standards in safety, health, and environmental practices, we ensure that our depots are synonymous with reliability and excellence. Dennis Verduyn, Global Depot Director: “We are very ambitious, the primary objective of our global depot strategy is to become the First Choice Depot for our customers.”

Understanding customer needs

We place a significant emphasis on understanding and responding to the evolving needs of our customers. The company achieves this through a global network of depots that adhere to stringent technical and safety standards. By standardising operational and SHEQ (Safety, Health, Environment, and Quality) procedures, we guarantee a consistent and superior service experience across all locations. The implementation of a global safety management system enables the company to monitor and adapt to local regulations and best practices, ensuring continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.

 


Diverse services and solutions

With over 30 years of experience, and a network of partners and 21 depots worldwide, we offer a wide range of services tailored to meet the diverse needs of our customers. These services are designed to be safe, efficient and sustainable, adapting to local requirements while maintaining global technical standards. For instance, in regions with specific environmental regulations, our depots are equipped to meet these unique demands without compromising on their high standards of service.

Strong focus on sustainability

We integrate environmentally friendly practices into our depot operations. The company has developed an ambitious sustainability strategy focused on reducing energy consumption, water usage, and waste-to-landfill. Investments in the latest technology have enabled significant reductions in carbon footprints and waste production.

Dennis Verduyn, Global Depot Director: “We have formulated an ambitious sustainability strategy with a strong focus on Energy, Water and Waste-to-Landfill. We continuously invest in the application of newest technology to lower our carbon footprint, minimise fresh water usage as well the production of waste. Many initiatives are developed around the world, the best ideas are shared and implemented globally. Our sustainable achievements are registered and calculated by certified software. This enables us to share Scope 1 and 2 emissions with our customers who will benefit directly from our efforts. A win-win, for both the environment as well our customers!” 

Recent innovations

Innovation is at the core of our strategy. In 2023, the company introduced a ground-breaking filtration process at our Moerdijk facility, significantly reducing freshwater consumption. Over the past five years, we began the transition from gasoline to natural gas and biodiesel, furthering our sustainability goals. Additionally, the recycling of PTFE seals and gaskets demonstrates our innovative approach to reducing waste and promoting circular economy practices.

Strategic partnerships

Strategic partnerships play an important role in enhancing our depot capabilities. Collaborations with companies like Neste for the introduction of HVO100 biofuel have successfully reduced GHS emissions from container handlers. Moreover, the partnership with Bearing Point Emission Calculator enables us to meticulously track and report our sustainability metrics, ensuring transparency and continuous improvement.

Future outlook

Looking ahead, we are committed to growing with the industry by continuously identifying and meeting the evolving needs of our customers. The company aims to enhance our depot services through investments in people, digital solutions, and new technologies. This ensures that Stolt Tank Containers will continue to deliver the safest, most efficient, and most sustainable depot offerings for the tank container industry. “Together with our customers we set the new benchmark for full service depots”, says Dennis Verduyn.
