Textainer was established in 1979 and is a leader in the marine container leasing industry. Textainer leases standard, special dry freight,
and refrigerated intermodal containers to international shipping lines. Textainer also purchases older containers from its shipping line customers
and sells these containers along with containers being disposed from its own fleet. Textainer is the primary supplier of containers to the U.S.
Military. Today, Textainer is the largest lessor of marine containers and is, we believe, the largest seller of second hand containers in the world.
A network of 14 regional and area offices form the backbone of Textainer's leasing, resale, and operations activities.
Textainer maintains four regional offices: 1) Americas Region in Hackensack, NJ responsible for North, Central and South America;
2) European Region in London responsible for Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, India, and Africa; 3) North Asia Region
in Yokohama responsible for Japan, Korea, and Taiwan; and 4) South Asia Region in Singapore responsible for Southeast Asia,
China, and Australia.
Textainer's strategy is to be the most reliable supplier of quality containers. This strategy is implemented by paying detailed
attention to all aspects of the business including: providing superior equipment; ensuring it is available in the right place and
at the right time; charging competitive rates; minimizing repair costs; and operating a professional, experienced organization.
Whether you need 20' standard dry freight containers in Shanghai, 40' high cubes in Chicago, folding flatracks in Hamburg,
or reefers in Santiago, Textainer provides the high quality equipment and excellent service you expect from a world leader.
Textainer's owned and managed container fleet is comprised of 2.8 million twenty foot equivalent units (TEU) with a current
replacement cost of over $6 billion. Textainer has 160 employees and dedicated representatives located around the world in
major international shipping and trading centers.
