Tank container

Put our extensive expertise in international tank container logistics to good use!


You can lease tank containers from VTG, but we also deliver the logistical services to go with them. Smooth and safe transport processes are critically important for consignments of liquids and temperature-controlled products in particular – and all the more so for hazardous goods.

Shipping your products in tank containers gives you the flexibility to easily switch between different modes of transport. We develop sustainable logistics concepts to get your goods from A to B in the safest and best way possible. To do so, we use all intermodal transport routes available, drawing on an excellent network of VTG facilities and strategic partnerships. This network provides add-on services such as storage, heating and transfer to other containers, as well as guaranteeing professional on-site support.

Our Tank Container team will work out optimal logistics solutions for you. Thanks to our special expertise in rail freight transport, we can support you in shifting transports from road to rail and opening up sustainable and safe transport routes. On request, we can also manage your own tank container fleet – to boost its efficiency and free you up for your core business.


How you benefit:

  • Complete package consisting of logistics services and tank container leasing
  • Solutions for the chemical industry in Europe and along the Eurasian corridor
  • Use of all routes available for intermodal transports
  • High level of expertise in eco-friendly rail freight transport
