How to transport milk
Australian container hire firm SCF worked together with logistics operator McColl ’ s Transport to overcome the many challenges of transporting milk . Such obstacles include managing temperature control over significant periods of time and distance ; Australia is , after all , a big country . In seeking a solution to deliver milk intermodally between locations , SCF designed a food grade ISO tank to ensure the integrity of liquids over long journeys without the need for external refrigeration . Moving milk in the ISO tanks provides greater flexibility than traditional food grade trailers , as they can be loaded onto road and rail , SCF said . Three years in the making , the purpose built foodgrade tanks come with a range of operator safety features and superior thermal insulation . They also come with advanced cleaning features which makes them easy to maintain as part of a fleet .
