Tank container hire

VTG Tanktainer specializes in leasing and providing logistical services related to tank containers. Tank containers are used to safely transport liquid and temperature-controlled products from the chemical, petroleum and compressed gas industries as well as in the food, pharmaceutical, fuel, agricultural and new energy sectors. 


This container type is particularly well suited for intermodal shipments and can reach any location in Europe or the CIS countries as well as destinations along the New Silk Road, such as China, regardless of the mode of transport.


VTG operates a global, broad-based fleet of tank containers. Within Eurasia, we provide efficient support for your tank container shipments targeted to meet the specific types of goods you will be shipping, as having tailor-made solutions is indispensable for your success. For example, you can choose from standard tank containers for liquid chemicals or petroleum products, compressed gas containers, tank containers for temperature-controlled products from the food or pharmaceutical industries, swap bodies for intra-European shipments, and specialized containers for substances like isocyanates.

Our vast experience also enables us to offer you the option of having your fleet of tank containers assembled according to your individual needs – whether by modifying the tank containers you already have or completely reconfiguring your fleet to meet your evolving needs. What’s more, our process-oriented quality and safety management system ensures that we remain in compliance with all national and international legal requirements related to health, safety and the environment.

As an experienced partner, we are also happy to assume full responsibility for managing your own container fleet and thereby allow you to concentrate on your core business. Our expert staff will be by your side to make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

Our individual rental concepts have flexible durations – whether for tank containers or tank container/rail tank car combinations – and are precisely tailored to your needs. GPS modules and a range of sensors, such as for temperature or filling level, can be installed on request.


Our skilled team would also be happy to personally assist you in your efforts to devise complex logistics concepts and transportation solutions, including supply chain management, tailored to your specific requirements. Take advantage of our comprehensive expertise in tank container fleet management to optimize your transport system and make it fit for the future.
