UWL launches its own flexitank

Freight forwarder UWL has launched a new proprietary flexitank for shipping non-hazardous bulk liquid cargo.

The UWL FlexiTank is now available alongside the company’s existing third-party offerings, increasing the range of options for clients.

Chris Booij, Global & Europe Director, UWL FlexiTanks & Bulk Liquid Logistics, sees this as an important addition to the company’s growing breadth of services. He said: “With the expansion of our bulk liquid offerings with the new UWL FlexiTanks, we are able to provide competitive products and services for our growing, global customer base in the bulk liquid industry. Our unique structure as an asset-based forwarder allows us to offer cross-functional products and services to customers in order to minimize costs and maximize effectiveness and efficiency”.

Steve Williams, Regional Director, North America, UWL FlexiTanks & Bulk Liquid Logistics, added: “Operating as a global NVOCC, UWL offers a ready-built operating network and infrastructure staffed with seasoned logistics professionals that are able to provide supply chain solutions to the chemical, food and logistics management industry on a worldwide basis. Adding UWL FlexiTanks as a packaging alternative for bulk liquid transport is a natural fit for our already extensive scope of service offerings. This provides our customers with a ‘one-stop-shop’, but with the same professionalism and dedication to excellence that all UWL clients have come to expect.”
