Liquid CONcept GmbH & Co. KG specialises in buying equipment and offering customised solutions for the transport of liquids in tank containers and intermediate bulk containers (IBC).

 

Schnoor will maintain and intensify the company’s relationships with new and existing customers while pursuing new lines of business in the liquid logistics sectors Specifically, he is keen to develop what he refers to as “innovative transportation solutions for liquid foodstuffs that put sustainability first”. This is likely to include investment in new equipment.

 

The past year has seen Liquid CONcept GmbH invest €500,000 in acquiring 100 new heated and fully insulated intermediate bulk containers (IBC), a move that has boosted its fleet of electrically-heated IBCs to 1,500 units.

 

This equipment is mainly used to transport foodstuffs, such as edible oils, fats, and couverture chocolate, that requires temperature controlled conditions. The IBCs have a loading capacity of 1,000 litres and are ideally suited to small shipments and situations where tank container/trucks are not applicable.

 

“Our investment in small containers enables us to respond even more flexibly to the strong growth in demand for liquid logistics services,” said Schnoor. “Our new units can also be individually modified and tailored to individual customers’ requirements.”

 

The executive believes the demand for specialised liquid transport and storage services will continue increasing, with the food processing industry showing some of the fastest rates of growth. Consequently, further orders for heated IBCs cannot be ruled out.

 

Liquid CONcept has built a strong reputation in the food processing industry and its activities cover equipment rental, transport, cleaning and maintenance services. Currently, the group manages a total pool of 4,500 IBCs.
