SII believes transportation is key to low cost and customer satisfaction. We own and operate a fleet of bulk tank trucks as well as a fleet of rail cars. Most of our plants are built on or near major inland waterways. We have six barge terminals located in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas for delivery of raw materials and products. Direct pipeline service is also available to major customers.
The variety of delivery systems provides assurance to customers that needed product will arrive where they want it, when they want it. Southern Ionics truck drivers boast an average of 10 years experience in chemical transport and go through a rigid safety education program that includes continuous training. With a clear knowledge of our products and of customers' delivery needs, these drivers are some of our best customer relations representatives.
The company's trucking fleet is engineered to provide maximum payload for our products. Unloading is safe and efficient with tractor supplied compressors or pumps. Product contamination potential is minimized and tank cleaning charges are avoided with our dedicated fleet. We deliver to your time constraints. Count on it. On-time delivery is a cornerstone on which we've built our business.
