Trammo also leases storage facilities in Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Romania. Furthermore, we manage dedicated distribution operations in Asia and Africa, namely in Thailand, China, South Africa and Ivory Coast. Through our joint venture with Sudmetal in Chile, we provide logistics services for the transportation of sulfuric acid by truck, rail, and vessel, and operate a storage tank at Mejillones port with an annual throughput of approximately 400,000 metric tons.
To support our LPG trade in the United States, Trammo leases propane storage capacity in the salt dome caverns in Mont Belvieu, Texas, and Conway, Kansas.
Trammo’s wholly owned subsidiaries, Sea-3, Inc. and Sea-3 Florida, Inc., own and operate propane import and wholesale distribution facilities with total storage capacity of more than 100,000 metric tons. Located on the Piscataqua River near Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and in the Port of Tampa, Florida, both terminals are capable of receiving or loading gas tankers with cargo capacities of up to 59,000 cubic meters. The terminals do not operate as a retail business but rather as a regional wholesaler with customers purchasing product by rack delivery into their own trucks and then delivering onward to their local customers. The Sea-3 terminals are two of only six active propane import terminals located on the East Coast of the United States.
In today’s challenging market environment, when demand is difficult to forecast over several weeks and months, warehousing and storage ensure just-in-time supply in an optimum way. Trammo’s dense network of terminals and warehouses makes the company the ideal business partner to satisfy product demand when and where it emerges.
