Brown Eagle is expanding their array of supply chain solution offerings through the implementation of an innovative flexitank program. The use of flexitanks enables Brown Eagle to offer companies a more affordable option for transporting non-hazardous liquid chemicals overseas and by railway that is just as safe as conventional ISO containers. The solution also gives clients much more flexibility on how they can ship their products globally.

“As a supply chain solution provider, our goal is to provide clients with the most affordable, cost-effective option to meet their supply chain needs,” said Brown Eagle president Billy Bellefontaine. “Flexitanks give us an opportunity to do that while providing us with a different avenue for diversity in supply chain solutions, moving from onsite operations to port operations. We’re striving to be the go-to supply chain solution for clients in our region, and this is a significant step in that direction.”

The flexitank process utilizes a work crew to transload liquids out of rail cars at ports and bulk loading stations. Through the addition of this program, Brown Eagle plans to add several work crews to provide this service to clients across their footprint.

“We take pride in delivering innovative services, and the opportunity we have with flexitanks allows us to better address the supply chain solution needs of our clients,” said Lela Mae Wilkes, owner and CEO at Brown Eagle. “The partnership will also bring in new team members to Brown Eagle to better serve these clients, adding to the already exceptional team we have here.”
