ISO tank

Containment systems for the prevention of pollution, Secondary, tertiary and other measures for industrial and commercial premises (CIRIA C736), published by CIRIA in 2014, defines an ISO tank (or tank container) as: ‘…a pressure vessel held within a 20-foot ISO frame that is used for the transportation and storage of bulk liquids. The 20-foot ISO frame ensures that tank containers can be transported using most modern inter-modal transportation options, including container ships, trucks and rail. A tank container built to the ISO standard making it suitable for different modes of transportation.’
