TIP has massive expertise in tankers throughout Europe, servicing 16 countries from 70 locations. In 2017 that will expand even further and, for the first time, TIP tankers will be available in the Nordic region.
The experience gained from other regions will prove a huge benefit to Nordic customers, as TIP understands the complexities and requirements of fully utilising tankers and provid a range of services for customers including leasing, rental, maintenance and repair. Thanks to a dedicated department dealing exclusively with tankers and because of our large and diverse fleet, TIP is able to offer innovative tailor-made solutions to suit all types of businesses.
Tanker rental and leasing
Tanker requirements vary depending on the size and nature of each individual company, peaks and troughs in terms of workflow, and the changing demands of the industry in general. TIP acknowledges the dynamic nature of the transportation and logistics sector, which is why TIP provides a range of rental and leasing options to cater to customers’ needs. Always willing to see the bigger picture, TIP is prepared to meet new challenges that businesses may face by offering tailored products and services andby providing flexible solutions to suit each individual client as their circumstances change. Therefore, tankers can be rented on a spot-hire basis or long-term contract lease, incorporating maintenance and repair services. TIP is committed to finding the best package to match the requisite demands of every enterprise.
In addition to this, TIP can also offer a sale and lease back service, where TIP gives the customer a lump sum to purchase their tanker fleet and then lease the tankers back on terms that suit customer’s business, typically over a long period, in order to free up capital.
Tanker maintenance and repair
TIP acquired Nordic Tank’s aftersales team in order to hit the ground running. It immediately provides great experience and knowledge of servicing tank trailers. Customers can immediately benefit from one of TIP’s great strengths – an expertise in maintaining these types of trailers.
TIP understands that tanker repairs are often intricate and can involve complicated legislation, which is why there are dedicated tanker workshops and mobile service units designed to keep tanker fleets in full operation, wherever and whenever that becomes necessary. TIP provides fully-maintained working tankers so that companies can concentrate on their core business without the added stress of arranging servicing, repairs, etc.
