HOYER expands tank container fleet

Hamburg logistics provider invests in intermodal future

Hamburg, 3 June 2014 – Hamburg-based logistics company HOYER is expanding its tank container fleet by another 3,450 units by the end of 2016. As a result, the full-service provider will be fully prepared for medium- to long-term growth in the field of international liquid transports.

The HOYER Group is one of the largest tank container operators in the world and with approximately 32,000 tank containers is comprehensively equipped for intermodal transport. The logistics service provider is systematically expanding this position even further. This year HOYER will invest in 250 new tank containers with a capacity of 24 m3. And for 2015 and 2016 new orders have already been placed for a total of 3,200 tank containers from leading manufacturers.

“Our tank containers are in big demand with our customers”, says Ulrich Graupe, Head of Equipment Management at HOYER. “By systematically expanding our transport equipment, we are creating good conditions for future growth in global intermodal transportation.” Demand for tank containers with a volume of 26 m3 in particular is growing on the transport market. HOYER has ordered 1,000 of these with baffles and 900 without baffles for the next two years.

The HOYER Group also has the right equipment available for smaller transport volumes. In 2015 and 2016, another 700 tank containers with a capacity of 24 m3 and 600 tank containers with a capacity of 21 m3 will be manufactured for this purpose. By investing in new tank containers, the international logistics specialist is responding to individual customer requirements.
