The company plays an essential role in the storage of strategic oil product reserves for both Germany and Belgium, as well as in the supply chain logistics of oil majors and other market participants by providing distribution services. From UNITANK’s terminals, airports in Frankfurt and Berlin as well as filling stations across the regions are serviced by pipeline, rail, road and barges.

The capability to handle multiple products makes the platform particularly attractive to clients that wish to concentrate various oil products in a single place. As a result of its flexible business model, high-quality asset base and operational excellence the business is well positioned for the future. ESG is a priority for DIF and UNITANK, which is fully compliant with the highest environmental and safety regulatory requirements.
