Intermediate Bulk Containers And Secondary Containment. 

Most industries make use of IBC’s in the workplace, but neglect to prioritise secondary containment solutions. However, the two should coexist and be paired together to maximise the safety level in the environment.

If an intermediate bulk container leaks, for instance, and the stored chemical is incompatible with the surface underneath, there could potentially be harmful chemical reactions. Unfortunately, the reality is that it’s impossible to constantly have your eyes on everything at all times, and unknown spills are bound to happen at some point. But, that is why every business should make use of secondary containment solutions, such as pallet bunds.

Not only will it ease your conscience, but it will also add an extra layer of protection to your business, personnel, and the environment.


How To Store IBC’s. 

Having the appropriate chemical storage solutions is great, but what follows is just as important. Knowing how to properly store your IBC’s is vital for the safety of the workplace, so be sure to follow the follow these guidelines:

  • Understanding IBC Spill Containment SystemsStore incompatible substances at least three feet apart.
  • Ensure safety warnings and labels are intact and visible.
  • The containment systems should be larger than the volume it is holding, especially secondary containment systems.
  • Reduce traffic and access to storage locations.
  • Manage and train staff to use IBC’s and secondary contaminants appropriately to avoid possible contamination, injury, reactions or misuse.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $135 + gst to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
