As a trader in liquid bulk products you understand the value of having access to an efficient, flexible and safe tank terminal. It is a vital piece of infrastructure you need to run your daily business. But are you sure that you are in the right terminal with the best infrastructure, in the optimal location and that shows excellent performance? If this isn’t the case it might impact your business in a negative way. Losses due to demurrage, inefficient operations or a lack of flexibility can be high.
Another problem that might occur is that you need tank storage capacity in order to handle an operational issue or in order to take advantage of an opportunity in the market. Quickly finding suitable tank terminals and being able to contact the right people is vital in such a situation. In order to cope with these issues you might try to gather intel and data on terminal infrastructure, locations and performance via the web. But this is a time consuming and tedious task which will only result in an incomplete and inaccurate overview of the terminal landscape. Furthermore data on logistical performance and availability is totally unfindable on the internet making a sensible comparison impossible.
