SHIPPING CONTAINER LEASING WHAT THIS ACTUALLY
MEANS TO YOU
Container leasing involves entering into a working agreement with a container supplier.
The supplier agrees to deliver a minimum number of containers to the client, with the
understanding that the containers will be used for a specified time and at a rate
documented within the terms of the lease agreement. Both the supplier and the
customer will also agree to other terms and conditions required by applicable laws, and
any other negotiations made between the two entities.
One of the main benefits to container leasing is the flexibility that is often built into the
lease agreement. Often, the supplier and client agree upon a minimum number of
containers to be in the possession of the client for the duration of the lease. However,
additional containers can be requested and delivered for use when and as the customer
needs them. It is not unusual for discount leasing fees to be applied to those extra
containers. As a result, the customer only keeps what is needed on hand, but has
immediate access to additional containers with only minimal expense involved.
Companies also find that a container leasing arrangement helps to eliminate the need
for upkeep on the containers themselves. While customers are expected to take
reasonable care of the containers, most container leasing companies realize that
normal use takes place.
Customers can turn in older containers for newer ones from time to time, often without
any changes to the terms of the leasing agreement. Sell offs from leasing companies is
a great source of second hand containers. It is not unusual for a container lease to
provide customers access to more than one type of container for shipping purposes,

establish the ability of the client to enjoy tank container leasing privileges along with the
standard storage container lease that is common for units constructed for use with dry
stuffs. This arrangement tends to work well for companies that import and export goods
from various continents, or that sell both solid and liquid goods.
Providers sometimes include provisions in their container leasing agreements that
make it possible for customers to receive discounted pricing should they choose to
purchase a minimum number of units. This provision is helpful for companies going
through an expansion that makes it more feasible for the business to own and operate
their own transportation network rather than use sub contract. Often, the cost per unit is
significantly less than purchasing containers from a new supplier.
Because there are advantages to container leasing as well as container ownership,
companies may require some assistance in determining which option is in the best
interests of the company.
