Tank container storage and depot services expanded in Saudi Arabia
During 2019, Stolt Tank Containers responded to the growing demand for tank container storage and depot services in Saudi Arabia by opening two new depots in Jubail (100,000m2) and Dammam, as well as enlarging our existing depot in Jeddah. With tank containers being used to move over 500,000 tonnes of bulk liquid petrochemicals and refined petroleum products within and from the country, Saudi Arabia’s tank container industry is the largest in the Middle East. Increasing production of specialty chemicals means demand in the region is continuing to grow.
Leading quality, capacity and technical support
Stolt Tank Containers’ trio of tank container storage and depot facilities in Saudi Arabia set the benchmark for quality, capacity and technical support. All three are compliant with ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001. Investment in wastewater treatment and air scrubbers has also been made to minimise environmental impact. The Jeddah, Jubail and Dammam facilities have the capacity to clean 2,000 tank containers every month.
The global depot network behind every successful shipment
Successful supply chain management depends on optimal performance at every stage. Including the service and expertise provided at tank container depots and cleaning stations.
