SNBC story correction
Apr 1, 2011 12:00 PM
In the March cover story titled “SNBC launches domestic tank container service,” Bulk Transporter misidentified the developer of the tank container/chassis system used by Schneider National Bulk Carriers. That section of the story should read as follows:
Intermodal equipment suppliers worked very closely with SNBC in developing a custom tank container and chassis. The patent-pending RoadRail Tank system was designed by International Transport Equipment Corp (ITEC) initially for the North American domestic market. During the development stage that lasted about three years, Kenneth Haut, ITEC president, sought the expertise of Exsif Worldwide Inc, SNBC, China International Marine Containers (CIMC), Reinke Manufacturing Co Inc, and Trans World Equipment Corp to make sure the equipment specifications met the needs of the customers. The tank container will be manufactured CIMC under a manufacturing agreement and the chassis will be fabricated by Reinke.
With a capacity up to 7,133 gallons, the T11 tank container can handle a wide range of hazardous and non-hazardous chemical cargoes. Typical cargoes will be in the range of eight to 11 pounds per gallon. The tank container is 40 feet long; six feet, four inches wide; and eight feet high.
