AboutBulkTainerGroup David Eltherington, director and owner of the group, founded the company in 2009 with the aim of being the best iso-tank operator, offering the highest standard of service levels and integrity through regulatory compliance and accreditations. The group has experienced significant growth since incorporation recording a turnover of £83.8m for the year ended 31 December 2021 and now has over 280 employees around the world, incorporating decades of logistics experience. The group’s employees are key to its successful growth to date. The group started as a small family run business and all employees are referred to as being part of “The Bulk Tainer Family”. Since opening in the UK, the group has expanded globally and now has entities/offices in Spain, Finland, Belgium, Sweden, Poland, Italy, China, UAE, Singapore and the USA. The group currently has a fleet of over 9,000 iso-tanks; as this is a relatively young fleet they have all the added innovative safety features which provides the group with a competitive advantage. The group has developed its own GPS units which are ATEX approved and installation across the group’s fleet of iso-tanks is underway. This will provide its customers with a new and unique view on the performance of their product whilst in the logistics part of the supply chain. Since 2018, the group has invested in a haulage division, Bulk Tainer Transport.

Bulk Tainer Transport now has divisions in the UK, Holland and Spain with further expansion under consideration in the USA and China. Bulk Tainer Group’s success remains consistent with its initial values of aiming to be the best in class, continuing to grow and nurture its people, become a vital part of its customers’ success, work closely and fairly with its suppliers and, as much as possible, enjoy the journey together.
