Transport bladders are made from mill-spec material, a Full Military specification Material with high strength and made specifically for resisting abrasion during transportation for wear resistance and UV protection for African conditions.
The coating of the material is selected according to chemical characteristics of the liquid transported so as to avoid chemical reaction and guarantee the original properties of the liquid. They are long life, multiple use Bladder tanks and are made to last for 6 years and beyond. The Flexitanks are fully self-supporting and surge resistant when filled to capacity and tied down onto the trailer or truck bed.
FTS tanks can supply bladder tanks to be used in almost all modes of transport
Many companies are now getting FREE Diesel and Paraffin transport by using unutilized empty back-hauls with our Flexitank Systems Diesel Bladder tanks. Flatbeds, drop-side, and Tipper truck trailers or railcars are using our Harnessed fuel tanks to transport fuel all over Africa. From Beira to Tete, Walvis-bay to Kimberly and Northern cape to Port Elizabeth. The possibilities are endless, you imagine it we make it happen.
We all like our Drinks and FTS Flexitank Systems is helping SA get Molasses to manufacture Alcohol from Zambia and Mozambique to SA at no extra cost to the manufacturers, as they us empty trucks-trailers who do not have a backload to bring back the molasses in our Bladder-tanks. Like the molasses, Distribution of Sunflower and other edible oils are transported all over Africa in our FDA approved food grade bladder tanks. Its efficient-, and is a great differentiator for any entrepreneurial transporter, road or rail.
Imagine modular transport for liquids one way and commodities the other….. in the same vessel. Our customers are loading ORE or MANGANESE in the Northern Cape of South Arica in a half-high container to Europe and the Far-east and bringing back Diesel, fertilizer or any other precious liquid on the way back…. In a FTS Bladder-tank in the same half-high container
Fuel diesel bladders can come equipped with all the necessary components for transportation, for example water transportation or fuel transportation on vehicles.
Flexible tanks are equipped with adjustable skirts and adjustable towage straps designed to provide high resistance to transport constraints. Adjustable skirts may be replaced by a strap net in case the users need to transform a traditional storage tank to a transportable flexible tank. Specially developed Flexible fuel bladders can also be towed by sled, as in the unique Antarctic expeditions made by American, German and British science teams. High end fuel bladders are made of elastomer coated fabrics manufactured by homogeneous vulcanization in one operation. The fabrics ensure the mechanical resistance. Coating and design engineering grant chemical properties and water tightness.
FTS tanks specialize in the manufacturing of transportable bladder tanks for the aviation industry, whether its to extend the fuel range of the aero plane or to simply to transfer bulk liquid to remote sites. All tanks goes through a stringent quality control test.
FTS tanks specialize in the manufacturing of transportable bladder tanks for the yachting, shipping and boating industry, whether its to extend the fuel range of the vessel or to simply to transfer bulk liquid to remote sites. Fuel bladder Tanks can tugged behind boat or fitted on the boat. All tanks goes through a stringent quality control test.

Sealed UV resistant bladder style tank manufactured to a variety of agency specifications, designed for transporting liquid in emergency response situations. The trucking bladder is designed to be mounted on a flat bed truck or trailer. Each kit is packed in ISPM15 heat treated plywood casing suitable for export.
Given the general requirement for very large volumes of crude oil storage (that is typically delivered by trucks making hundreds of trips) the carbon footprint and cost of logistics can be prohibitive via transportable bladder tanks.
In addition, large, heavy, expensive steel storage tanks are often used which, in turn, can damage the ground they sit on and be as costly to remove as they were to purchase.
Steel tanks can also have a long wait time – from purchase to delivery – depending on the inventory available which can hold up critical deployment of large scale storage capacity. One transportable bladder tank can be manufactured in less than a day.
To deliver a solution to this multitude of problems, Diesel transportable bladder tanks make mass fluid storage simple and cost-effective to meet world wide shortages of crude oil storage capacity.
Fuel transport bladders are a collapsible pillow water tank system designed specifically for crude oil storage. Flexitank crude oil storage bladders are easy to set-up and can be used immediately with almost no site preparation required. Crude oil storage pillow tanks are lightweight, fully collapsible, environmentally-friendly, and they don’t damage the ground beneath them.
