STS has been owned and operated by the same partners since 2000. As a small privately held company, we are actively involved in the day to day operations of Southern Tank Services, working closely with our customers helping them to meet the needs of their customers. Our ability to identify opportunities to further enhance our service, accommodate special requests and take on special project tanks for the benefit of our customers is what sets us apart from other wash facilities.

Our Jacksonville site was selected for its proximity to the port, major interstates serving north/south and western traffic lanes and the opportunity for expansion. Our 20 acre facility currently houses an 1800 sq ft office and driver break room, an 1800 sq foot maintenance office and two full service bays, terminal facility for a national carrier, a waste water treatment plant, several acres for parking or terminaling and storage as well as 5+ acres available for future growth opportunities.

Our onsite Biologic Waste Water plant allows us to responsibly treat all waste water before returned to the local water management district.  Our commitment to responsible treatment of all waste water has earned us many Outstanding Steward awards over the past 16 years.  JEA recognizes Southern Tank Services for outstanding environmental performance achieving 100% industrial pretreatment compliance for 6 consecutive years. One hundred percent compliance means that the facilities met all the conditions of their permits, discharged wastewater meeting effluent criteria, submitted required environmental reports, and passed rigorous on-site inspections. STS revieved the Platinum award for industrial pretreatment compliance in 2009.
