Metano IBCs Provide Savings as Transportation Fuel Costs Rise

MILLSTONE TWP., NJ As gas prices continue to rise, stainless steel IBCs stand out as a great option for controlling transportation costs in the liquid packaging industry.

"One 350-gallon IBC equals the capacity of more than six drums, making stainless steel IBCs the cost-efficient transportation choice," said Tom Wilkins, president of Metano IBC Services Inc. "IBCs require fewer resources to transport the same volume of liquid."

The stackable, modular stainless steel tanks are more space-efficient than drums and also easier to handle, fill and empty, he said. "Intermediate bulk containers are durable and reusable, which saves our customers money on labor, storage and freight costs."

Other financials benefits offered by stainless steel IBCs include substantial reductions in total annual packaging cost per gallon, as well as labor costs and liability concerns.

Renting stainless steel IBCs provides further advantages, such as long- and short-term budget flexibility and increased ease of switching out IBC types as needed.

Based in New Jersey, Metano IBC Services, Inc., is a long-time leader in the stainless steel IBC rental and services market.
