Tank container logistics

Services for chemical products

Our Tank Container Logistics division operates worldwide, offering a range of tank container transport, logistics and hire services. The division’s transport and logistics services are provided by VTG Tanktainer, with a fleet of around 7,800 tank containers.


VTG Tanktainer is one of the world’s largest providers of logistics services for chemical products. We primarily transport liquid and temperature-controlled products from the chemical, petroleum and compressed gas industries in tank containers. This container type is especially well suited to intermodal transportation and can be shipped anywhere in the world without having to rely on any single given mode of transport.


We’ve aligned our Tank Container Logistics division’s product and service portfolio to reflect the increasingly international marketplace. For instance, we have a 50% stake in Cosco VTG Tanktainer Limited, a joint venture in China. Cosco, our fellow stakeholder, is one of the world’s largest shipping and logistics groups.
