This sophisticated terminal serves the bulk liquid and specialty chemical, vegetable oil and petroleum industry in the south-eastern and logistically favored central United States.
OTC offers pressurized tanks with marine, railcar, isotank and tank truck accessibility, automatic nitrogen compensation systems, and an advanced vapor control system.
The location by the Cooper River in South Carolina makes the terminal easily accessible for sea-going tankers and barges, railcars, tank trucks, isotanks and pipelines. The ship dock can handle vessels up to 75,000 dwt with drafts of up to 42 feet, and the site is equipped with broad rail tank car and road tank truck handling facilities, as well as bulk liquid transloading services.
Transloading is a logistical solution for customers seeking alternative means of transferring products from one mode of transportation to another, while maintaining strict product stewardship in a safe and efficient manner. This operation allows for expedited shipments in a cost-efficient manner by avoiding tank storage and reducing or eliminating detention and demurrage of equipment.
Odfjell’s ownership share is 51% of OTC.
