1. What liquids can Flexitank hold?
Anthente can manufacture Flexitanks to handle the bulk transport of most non-hazardous liquids.
We have an extensive library of liquid research and will work closely with prospective clients to determine what type of tank is suitable for each product.
Unfortunately, we cannot provide Flexitanks for hazardous goods due to domestic and international shipping regulations.
2. What insurance do I need?
We strongly recommend that an appropriate marine / land transport cargo insurance policy is taken out on all shipments. All claims must be initially directed to your marine cargo insurer. We also request notification of any potential product issues so as to keep accurate incident reporting and offer, where possible, emergency assistance.
As a member of the Container Owners Association, Anthente will provide you with a high quality Flexitank that meets certifications and specifications.
Customers must use our Flexitank and accessories (such as bulkheads) collectively as the mixing and matching of components will result in forfeiture of insurance coverage. Customers must also hold a Marine Cargo Insurance.
3. Is Anthente manufacturing the Flexitanks?
Yes. Anthente is a direct manufacturer of Flexitanks. We also control inventory stock and delivery logistics to help ensure an easy one-stop-shop for your orders.
4. Does Anthente provide maintenance support?
Yes. Anthente can help you export Flexitanks, fit and deliver your bulk liquid anywhere in the North America and select countries in the world using our extensive network of logistic partners.
5. What is the handling of a Flexitank?
The Flexitanks should be loaded within ±5% of their rated capacity - i.e. a 24KL Flexitank must be loaded between 22.8KL – 25.2KL depending on the product.
Both truck and container must be level for a proper loading of the Flexitank, otherwise imbalance and sagging will cause damage to the Flexitank.
Containers loaded with full Flexitanks must always be lifted from the top, and not by a container forklift. Failing to move/ lift containers from the top will put undue pressure on the side walls of the container and may result in significant damage to the container and Flexitank, which may result in a loss of product. For land transportation, Flexitanks contents should be declared and transportation should be conducted by approved personnel, as per requirement in different regions.
