Dry Bulk Transports in 20ft-30ft-40ft containers

The Silo to Silo concept

 

The shipping containers are mostly used for the transportation of bagged products.

The Silo-to-SIlo system uses the container as a big box and the cargo is being loaded and discharged directly from and to silos.

All the advantages of this transportation method are mentioned at the end of this page.

Bulk shipments can be loaded in 20ft, 30ft and 40ft containers, that fulfil specific safety and cleaning standards.

Dry Bulk Liners

 

Each container is being fitted with a single use liner, that is designed to protect the products during transit.

The liners are made of PE, are food grade approved and 100% recyclable.
