Small to medium businesses, particularly in Africa, are being squeezed by the cost and limited availability of bulk liquid storage facilities. This shortage is exacerbated by the fact that rail and port infrastructure in sub-Saharan Africa was initially constructed to facilitate resource extraction rather than trade, leading to bottlenecks and delays that can adversely business.
For lubricant blenders and suppliers, especially in landlocked countries, these inadequacies can make it difficult to import, transport and store the materials they need to produce lubricants. One cost-effective solution to this problem is the use of flexitanks (or flexibags) to ship and store base oils.
