What does “handling fee” mean?

Every time a container, whether it is a container for lease or sale, is moved around a depot, it requires a lift. The handling fee is a one-time cost that covers moving the container around in the depot areas. The fee is only applicable when you lease a container or have a one-way deal with us. We never charge you a handling fee when you buy a container outright, so there are no hidden costs.

What do the different container delivery options mean?

It does not matter if you buy or lease a container; MC Containers can deliver it to you. We use a variety of container delivery methods, including the following container trucking methods:

  • Chassis / CPT (Carriage Paid To)
  • On ground / DAP (Delivered At Place)
  • FOT DEPOT / FCA (Free Carrier)

Chassis delivery means that your new, used or modified container will be delivered to the destination on a container chassis. However, this service does not include removing it from the chassis. If you decide to buy a container, it is your responsibility to organize a crane or another piece of machinery to offload it. This is the most common container delivery method in Europe due to the better availability of trucks and cost-effective rates.

On On-ground deliveries are done with a truck that can drop the container to the ground with it’s own equipment. Normally, the container delivery is done using a side loader or a truck equipped with a crane. The standard delivery price includes 30-45 min of unloading time per container and any extra time is billed at an hourly rate. If you don’t have a crane available or cannot organize one then this is the best and only option for you.

FOT DEPOT means Free on Truck in depot. With this container delivery method, the buyer is responsible for organizing a pickup from the chosen container depot. The seller will organize a lift to the chassis in the container depot, so you will not need a crane or side loader for the pickup.

Types and Sizes

For convenient, quick and secure handling of the material, all the containers have the same sizes, with precisely stable frame-structure around them and common links for the handling devices to connect properly.

There is a wide range of tank containers. The type and other adjustments, including valves loading fittings and heating system depend on what they need to be used for.

Different fitments, such as valves stacking fittings and warming frameworks, vary as per the end client’s prerequisites.

Why Go for Tank Container? 

They have multiple benefits and are

  • More productive than utilizing more small drums.
  • simple to ship
  • simple and brisk load and unload load through rooftop lids and valves.

Using a Tank Container disposes of the dangers in relocating or moving liquids from one vessel onto the next. This gives a financially savvy, secure and very protected suitable method of shipment.

After shipping, the tank container is moved to a cleaning terminal preparing it for the next cargo.

New 20ft ISO Tank Container

ISO Tank Container 

ISO tanks are cost-effective as they can place and effectively transport less than shipload or truckload materials with much less shipping and handling cost. They can generally be stacked in 90mins whereas drums require a few hours.

Moreover, the freight can be easily carried by truck to the railroad, from the train to transport deck and ISO tanks can also be shipped via air.

Like other container types, ISO tanks can also be stacked. Inter-modal containers Ltd. permit two ISO tanks to be shipped on the well with two more tanks loaded on top. This technique allows thousands of gallons of liquid to be shipped in much less time.

The ISO tank can accommodate around 4 thousand gallons much more than the previous standard-sized methods involving an IBC tank that could only place at around 3 thousand gallons each or 55-gallon drums.

T Code System Classifications for ISO Tank Containers

The IMO classifications for ISO Tank Containers has been replaced by the ‘T’ code system.

The T-Code system specifies the test pressure of each type of tank container, its shell thickness, the pressure relief set-up and the bottom and top outlet arrangement. T-Code instructions apply to dangerous goods in classes 1 and 3 through 9. Class 2.

The T-Code system for tank containers was introduced in 2001. The T-Code system identifies tank containers from T1 through T22 and identifies the type of cargoes each container is designed to carry.

ISO tank containers have to be manufactured in accordance with strict international codes for worldwide carriage of by liquids whether by land or sea.

Whilst the following isn’t a complete listing of the IMO types, it provides an indication of the original system of classification.

IMO Type 1 – Hazardous Tanks – approved for transportation of substances of Class 1 and Classes 3 through 9 where the liquids have a flashpoint of less than 0°C. Some examples of the types of liquids include explosives, flammable liquids, corrosive and toxic substances.

IMO Type 2 – Low Hazardous Tanks – approved for transportation of Class 3 substances that have a flashpoint of 0 – 61°C. Some examples of combustible liquids include diesel and cooking oils.

IMO Type 5 – Gas Tanks –  approved for transport of non-refrigerated liquefied gases of Class 2.

For reference, IMO stands for International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code.

In addition to the above types of ISO tank container, there are 2 others, namely, a T50 and a T70.

The T50 is a gas tank and has a minimum test pressure of 57.6 bar. Under the IMO system, this was classified IMO5.

The T70 is a cryogenic tank container designed for carrying liquefied gases. Under the IMO system, this was classified IMO7.

How Can use ISO tank Container to manage our cargo effectively?  

These tank containers are tough. Pressure load tests are played out each time a container is unloaded. As the ISO tank containers ship all types of hazardous or non-hazardous materials, they need to be certified and examined.

How to load materials? 

You can load and unload a tank container from the top and the base by connecting the hoses to the valves. There are a vent and one valve on the top of a standard tank vessel, and there is a valve at the base.

The ISO frame makes these tank containers dispatched with Inter-modal containers Ltd. delivery choices that incorporate container ships, rail lines and trucks.

Effective use ISO Tanks 

All in all, tank containers, at any rate, should always be 80% full, to prevent dangerous flooding of fluids during the transit. You can’t fill them more than 95%; otherwise, there will be no space to consider thermal expansion.

They can transport a number of hazardous and non-hazardous materials, including:

  • Molasses
  • Milk and other dairy items
  • Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beverages
  • Condensed sugars
  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Sulfur Acid/Nitric Acid
  • Synthetic compounds/Solvents
  • Fluid Food Products
  • Warming oil/Vegetable oils
  • Gas/Diesel/Liquefied petrol gas

Dimensions of Tank and ISO Tank Containers

Around 95% of tank containers have 20ft dimensions despite the fact that they come in other sizes, including 10ft, 30ft, 40ft, and 45ft containers.
