Liquid Bulk

A number of published studies on organizational performance prove that when a group focuses its efforts on SAFETY, it invariably gains excellence and efficiency in its operation as well.  

This philosophy provides the focus of Modern’s liquid bulk transportation services: Whether the material carries a dangerous hazmat rating or is a benign liquid chemical, or food grade, our liquid bulk team maintains an unwavering focus on safety in every action it takes.

Our safety focus can be clearly seen in the many on-board safety systems employed by Modern for our fleet.

Our dual commitment to safety and excellence are obvious in our consecutive US EPA SmartWay Program “Excellence” awards, earned in 2014 and again in 2015.  They’re likewise seen in our on-going efforts to achieve Responsible Care Partnership  certification.  The Responsible Care Management System is an initiative of the American Chemistry Council and was developed to improve the industry’s health, safety and environmental performance.

Food Grade

Shipping food grade liquid bulk freight is a highly specialized area, so choosing a professional, experienced, and reliable food grade liquid bulk carrier is very important to ensuring the proper handling of your liquid freight. Modern has all the necessary tools and expertise to safely and properly transport your liquid freight.

We are also pleased to have successfully collaborated with the Orthodox Union to earn certification as a transporter of kosher products.

Throughout the process of refining equipment specifications and adopting clear operational expectations and procedures, we began to greatly anticipate the opportunity to begin developing mutually beneficial partnerships with the producers of kosher goods.

As we transport kosher products to end users with a keen focus on both safety and reliability, we take great pride in knowing many of those products will enhance the lives of our very own families and friends.

Contact Modern and learn why so many chemical manufacturers reach out to us for both inbound and outbound supply chain services.


Specialty Chemicals

Specialty chemical makers operate in facilities equipped with smaller, batch-processing systems.  With less storage capacity, they must rely on highly precise inbound logistics. When you have to change raw materials frequently during expensive production processing, you can’t afford to be waiting on a truck with costly chemicals.

Modern Transportation has a heritage of performance in mission-critical production environments for large and sophisticated manufacturers across many sectors. Allow our relentless focus on safety and our comprehensive logistics experience to provide you with the supply chain support you need for your unique production environment.
