Hawaii Intermodal Tank Transport is relocating its headquarters from Newport Beach, California to Port Manatee Commerce Center, the company announced today.
The company is consolidating its offices in Newport Beach, Calif., and Miami to a 23,000-square-foot office warehouse building located at Port Manatee Commerce Center. PMCC is a 23-acre intermodal property just outside the security gates at the entrance to Port Manatee.
“We are excited about attracting this new business to the Port Manatee area," said Kevin Button, PMCC operations manager. “Being located outside the port security gates but still contiguous with port property enables Hawaii Tank to simplify its operation — allowing truck drivers to pickup loads without having to enter port security.”
Hawaii Tank got its start transporting milk from California to Hawaii and is now experiencing a great deal of growth in the orange juice market in Florida. Because of its uniquely designed tank container, Hawaii Tank allows transportation of up to 6,350 gallons per container of food-grade product delivered by land, sea and rail — without the need for refrigeration.
“By transporting bulk in our tanks, we give our customers numerous advantages over traditional methods such as drums and bins,” said Bahman Sadeghi, managing member of Hawaii Tank. “Our Integrated Transport Solution (ITS) results in significantly higher payload, greater efficiency and convenience, a reduced carbon footprint, while still maintaining product quality and integrity for our customers.”
Hawaii Tank has recently secured a long term contract with one of the largest orange juice producers in Florida. They will be looking into moving food-grade products out of Port Manatee to Europe, as well as Central and South America. The company is also evaluating potential synergies to move goods in and out of Mexico on Sea Bridge Freight, which operates a weekly barge service between Brownsville, Texas, and Port Manatee.
