Tank container logistics

To complement tank container hire, VTG also offers a range of logistics services. These include the transport of liquid and temperature-controlled products from the chemical, petroleum and compressed gas industries as well as products from the food, pharmaceutical, fuel, agricultural and new energy sectors. VTG also develops solutions for the chemical industry in Europe, Turkey, the CIS countries and on the Eurasian corridor, using all intermodal transport routes available. VTG has a 50% stake in COSCO VTG Tanktainer Ltd., a joint venture in China. COSCO, our Chinese partner in the joint venture, is one of the world’s largest shipping and logistics groups.


Organizing transports to make them run as smoothly, sustainably and safely as possible is of crucial importance – and not only when they involve hazardous goods. When tank containers are used for transport, the delivery chain can be specifically tailored to your needs. Tank containers are particularly well suited for intermodal transports. VTG Tanktainer offers door-to-door transports, whether as spot or round-trip shipments. You can choose which equipment your containers will be outfitted with depending on the specific kind of cargo your will transport.


In addition to temperature-controlled shipments, VTG Tanktainer also designs and delivers all-round logistics solutions, manages your tank containers on their behalf, and provides comprehensive transport logistics using specialized containers built specifically for you. This also includes the so-called flexitank system: These tanks can be used to transport between 15,000 and 24,000 liters of non-hazardous liquid goods in standard box or reefer containers.
