About The Company
Textainer has operated since 1979 and is the world's largest lessor of intermodal containers based on fleet size with a total of more than 2.2 million containers representing more than 3.2 million twenty foot equivalent units (TEU) in our owned and managed fleet. We lease containers to over 400 customers, including all of the world's leading international shipping lines, and other lessees. Our fleet consists of standard dry freight, dry freight specials, and refrigerated intermodal containers. We also lease tank containers through our relationship with Trifleet Leasing and are the primary supplier of containers to the U.S. Military. Textainer is one of the largest purchasers of new and used containers with annual capital expenditures of $800 million to $1 billion or more. In addition to selling older containers from our lease fleet, we buy older containers from our shipping line customers for trading and resale. We sell more than 100,000 containers per year to more than 1,100 customers making us one of the largest sellers of used containers. Textainer operates via a network of 14 offices and 400 depots worldwide.

Our regional and area offices form the backbone of our leasing, resale, and operations activities. Textainer maintains four regional offices: 1) Americas Region in Hackensack, New Jersey 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. We implement this strategy 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 containers in Shanghai, 40' high cubes in Chicago, folding flatracks in Hamburg, or reefers in Santiago, we provide the high quality equipment and excellent service you expect from a world leader.

We have 160 employees and dedicated representatives located around the world in major international shipping and trading centers. Textainer works with you to develop flexible and competitive terms for your short-term, long-term and finance lease needs.
