The Intermodal Container Leasing industry's activities are heavily skewed towards freight markets. The industry leases containers over the short or long term or on a financial-lease basis, and depends on long-term leases for the majority of its revenue. The largest players lease and manage the movement of containers for their clients. This maximises capacity usage for both parties and allows the industry to charge a premium for the provision of what would otherwise be low-value product.
The industry has faced an external shock due to the fallout from the global financial crisis. The global recession of 2008-09 depressed both global trade and domestic freight volumes.
Companies in this industry lease intermodal containers for the long- and short-term needs of transportation companies and shippers. Intermodal containers can be transported on ships, trains and trucks.
