From storage to throughput

UNITANK is a medium-sized family-run business for the commercial storage and product handling of mineral oil products. UNITANK was founded over fifty years ago on the basis of long-term storage contracts with the Berlin Senate and has been involved with the German Strategic Oil Storage Association (EBV) for the compulsory storage of oil stocks. In the meantime we evolved to own and operate 6 oil storage terminals at 5 locations in Germany and Belgium. In 2017 we delivered more than 5.5 million m³ from our terminals by pipeline and road tanker for the supply of the airports in Frankfurt and Berlin as well as the filling stations in many regions.
UNITANK is a neutral service provider - we do not own the oil products that are stored with us. All oil companies and traders can rent storage capacity with us and can have their products refined and handled by UNITANK. Storage terminals are the hub of combined transportation: Long-distance transport is carried out by rail, ship or pipeline to the terminal and from there it is just a short distance to the consumer by tank trucks.
While in the past focussed more on strategic storage, in recent years UNITANK has developed into a company that handles some of the largest volumes in the industry.

Setting benchmarks

Entrepreneurial foresight and resolute action have enabled UNITANK to grow contrary to the market trend.
Thanks to our many years of experience, our efficient organisation and the streamlined decision-making of a family-run business, UNITANK was and continues to be able to quickly and directly tap into the opportunities offered by a shrinking market. The sharp increase in our throughput volume in recent years is a clear proof.
Being proactive instead of reactive is our philosophy for sustainable investments in the technical structure of our tereminals, in automatization, in the development of our IT and in the securing of our infrastructure - that is to say: full of energy.

Creating added value

We operate our 6 oil storage terminals safely and reliably with a lean structure. This is only possible through an IT-supported organisation. The management information system, for instance, consolidates the numerous figures of products handled from the terminals and these can be viewed for analysis by the executive management any time and anywhere. Our electronic data management system is still far ahead of the industry standard. The digitalisation of all important documents such as permits, technical documentation and contracts enables everyone to have access to the documents that are relevant to them at all times.
The safe operation of all of our terminals and the development of numerous projects cannot be performed by our small team alone so we have been working in partnership with a network of specialised companies for many years.
