The Federation of European Tank Storage associations

Tank Storage means the storage of large quantities of liquids in bulk. These products stored typically include crude oil and derived products, chemicals and edible oils and fats. These products are owned by third parties, our customers. Tank Storage Companies act as custodians and provide an interface between various modes of transport.
