TANK Service Inc, Houston TX, recently celebrated a notable milestone with the sale of its 4,000th tank container. The tank container buyer was presented with a $4,000 rebate to commemorate that milestone.

Tank container 4,000 was one of 10 purchased recently by Transoceanic Projects & Development, a five-year-old Houston TX-based project freight forwarding and logistics company focused on the oil and energy sectors. Much of the company's business activity is concentrated in East Africa.

The 10 tank containers are the first ones purchased by Transoceanic Projects. They are IMO-1 tanks rated with a four-bar pressure capability and 6,340-gallon capacity. They were thoroughly overhauled in the Tank Service shop and will be used for land transport of jet fuel in East Africa.

The 4,000-tank-container milestone was an important achievement for Tank Service, according to Erick Garcia, vice-president of Tank Service. “We reached this point because of customers, such as Transoceanic Projects,” he says. “We very much appreciate their business.”

Established in 2002, Tank Service offers a wide range of intermodal tank equipment and services. The company sells new and used ISO tank containers and chassis and can make extensive modifications. The company also handles storage tank parts and accessories.
