If this is the first time you are hearing of the availability module on our platform, you are in for a treat!
Operators and leasing companies on our platform are using the availability module to show the rest of the world where they have tanks available. Of course they are not posting all their available tanks on the platform, only the tanks they would normally re-position empty to other parts of the world.
Why are tank container suppliers posting their availability?
Quite simple, because they would like the cargo owners to respond to these available tanks and load product into them.
This way, they are optimizing the utilization of these tanks and making the world a little bit greener.
What is the benefit for cargo owners?
Because operators normally have to pay for this empty re-positioning but now they are able to ship the tank container with product, they are able and keen to give very competitive freight rates/quotations!
