About ISO Tanks
ISO tanks are cost-effective and are increasingly becoming the preferred method to carry bulk liquids.
An ISO tank container has a mechanical frame which can be locked in place and easily moved and mounted on a ship, a train, or a chassis. This lowers handling and storage costs as much as 30% versus an over-the-road tanker.
