Ruan’s software called RedTrak aids in the efficient scheduling and transportation of liquid bulk products and it provides clients with information such as a truck’s exact location.
Meanwhile, Environmental Packaging Technology (EPT), of Houston, Texas, offers an inflatable storage tank, two of which are called the Big Red Flexitank and the Wine-Pac. Both tanks can be shipped via road, rail or sea in order to provide options when it comes to a customer’s logistic needs. Flexitanks meet ISO 9001 quality standards and can convert a 20-foot container into a 24 ton liquid hauler. It is currently the only flexitank approved by the Russian Railroad (RZD) for transporting bulk liquids.
“EPT has what we call a Wear Sleeve on our equipment, and this is an internal container liner that the Flexitank sits into,” explains Roger Goose, vice president at EPT. “It’s just an added security blanket that we provide to the shippers, so we know that there isn’t any possible contamination of the product.”
Wine-Pac tanks are specifically built with an EVOH layer of film around the tank, which helps reduce the permeation of oxygen.
