Agmark Logistics | Food grade shipping | ISO tanks | Intermodal shipping | Ocean shipping | Green transportation | Fuel efficient transportation | Bulk tanker shipper | Tanker shipping

Description

All Agmark tanks are designed to meet a variety of world standards for intermodal shipping. Our tanks meet the ISO requirements for tank containers and the shipping standards of the world and the United Nations. All of our food grade tankers meet the standards for safe transport of your bulk liquid goods on rail, road or sea. Beyond that, as a bulk ISO tank shipper, Agmark applies its own standards to be able to offer quality beyond food grade – sanitary grade. From the 316 low carbon stainless steel, to the quality of the stainless steel finish, to the ground and polished welds, to the type and thickness of the insulation used, to the sanitary valves and the details of construction, Agmark IMO, ISO, and T11 tanks are purpose built to safely move perishable and time sensitive food products as well as corrosive acids or flammable alcohol.
