How to export Tequila


There are two effective ways for tequila transport: bottled and bulky

Bottled tequila


The transport of bottled tequila is today the most common, since when you arrive at the destination place you do not need an intermediate process that prevents you from reaching your final consumer. There are several ways in which it can be transported and this will simply depend on the total product being sent, as it could result as a consolidated cargo (LCL) or in full containers (FCL), which can be handled by sea, land or aerial.


Bulk tequila


Undoubtedly the best way to transport tequila in bulk is through special Isotanks (Iso tanks) or food grade as they ensure that the product arrives in the best conditions, it is important to take into account the amount that is moving since the cargo is considered dangerous because of the degree of alcohol it contains, if you want to know more about how isotanks work we leave you the following article "Isotank: The response to the transport of liquids in bulk"
