Transporting or storing hazardous materials requires a container that’s approved by both the United Nations (UN) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Using UN/DOT hazardous material transport vessels not only ensures you’re compliant with governing agencies but also lowers the inherent risk of moving toxic materials.
Types of Tanks for Hazardous Material Transport or Storage
At Sharpsville Container Corporation (SCC), we provide high-quality UN/DOT tanks for hazardous material transport or storage. Whether you require stainless steel tanks for moving toxic materials throughout your plant or a fleet of containers for your shipping vessels, our knowledgeable team of engineers can deliver a solution.

- Shipping vessels
We also offer custom-engineered hazardous material transport vessels. With an in-house team of knowledgeable designers and engineers, we can provide competitive lead times and tailored solutions that alleviate your unique storage and transport needs.

All our manufactured hazardous material transport tanks, whether custom or standard, include a 12-month warranty and are constructed at our state-of-the-art facility, which covers 100,000 square feet.
Approvals for Standard and Custom-Engineered Hazardous Material Transport Vessels
Our tanks for moving toxic materials mieet the following regulations:
- DOT: Transporting dangerous goods to and from your plant requires labeling the container according to DOT regulations. Not only does the label inform staff and shippers to the contents of a vessel but also alerts emergency responders in the case of an accident. Hazardous material transport tanks for DOT standards lower the financial risk of transporting toxic goods too.
- UN: Standards set by the UN are like those of the DOT. A hazardous material transport vessel for the UN is manufactured, tested and labeled according to their regulations. Like the DOT guidelines, the goal is to inform handlers of the container’s contents and lower the risk of leaks and other accidents. UN tests include stacking, hydrostatic, vibration and more.
No matter your industry, from food and beverage to chemical and pharmaceutical, DOT/UN hazardous material transport vessels offer a solution to transporting and storing dangerous goods in and outside of plants.
If you already own a fleet of tanks for safety moving hazardous materials, but their DOT certification is outdated, our onsite DOT inspectors can review and recertify them for you.
