Accreditations at Trans Ocean: providing the highest standards in flexitank logistics

Harry Eng | General Manager – Group Manufacturing, Malaysia

Often we get asked by our clients, where we are as a company in terms of accreditations for the flexitanks logistics industry. Professional and trade accreditations are very important for our industry as they apply a clear professional standard and set of procedures to adhere to.

At our TOLT manufacturing plants in Malaysia, South Africa and China we are always working to achieve the highest and most up to date standards. By maintaining such a strict and clear focus on meeting professional accreditations, we can differentiate ourselves from some of our competitors (particularly in the flexitank industry where, low cost producers may not adhere to such stringent procedures).

As full list of Trans Ocean’s current accreditations can be found on our website http://www.transoceanbulk.com/accreditations/ . During 2015 we are actively pursuing ISO 14001 accreditation. We are also continuing to push the envelope with the COA PAS 1008, which aims to provide a new industry standard for flexitank logistics safety.

Alongside the Container Owners Association (COA) and other industry leaders, Trans Ocean have for many years campaigned for and championed best practice in the flexitank sector. As of today, the 3rd version of the COA’s Code Of Practice (COP), published in September 2011, remains the milestone that sets the standards and best practice for the industry.
