HOYER’s twenty-thousandth IBC enters service

Hamburger logistics specialist develops its small container capacity

Hamburg – March 19th, 2012 – HOYER’s intermediate bulk container (IBC) fleet expanded to a total of 20,000 in March. The Hamburg-based logistics group is continuing to invest in the small container sector. IBCs, whose capacity range between 500 and 1,000 litres, are particularly favoured for transporting and storage of liquid foodstuffs and chemical products.

“Although standardised types make up the bulk of our fleet, it is not unusual for us to develop special IBCs for our clients, optimised for specific uses,” explains Stephanie Muhs, who heads IBC logistics at HOYER.

All of HOYER’s IBCs are made of stainless steel. They have the advantage, for example, over plastic that they are straightforward to clean after use, so can be used repeatedly.

HOYER provides the right container for the client’s needs. IBCs can be supplied with special coatings, with heating or as suitable for carrying dangerous goods. For liquid foodstuffs, special mixing equipment can be installed. In addition to renting IBCs, HOYER can take over complete management of a fleet.

Modern plants with high-capacity throughput for cleaning IBCs are available throughout Germany, as well as across Europe. A security system is in place to ensure that all HOYER’s cleaning and checking services are carried out with the greatest care.

When it comes to intermediate bulk containers, HOYER clients can thus expect an all-round service.
