Our tank containers are leased by the chemical, industrial gas, energy, food grade and pharmaceutical industries, as well as by tank container operators and shipping lines. We lease standard tank containers ranging from 14,500 to 26,000 liters in size; special tank containers such as cool tanks, swap bodies, over-wide tanks, lined tanks with various types of linings and electrical heated tanks; and cryogenic tank containers. In addition to leasing tank containers around the world, we also offer related services, such as Fleet Service Management (Trifleet TEAMS). Trifleet’s cryogenic business also offers equipment, such as cryogenic pumps, hoses and installation systems, as well as related technical support.
Since 2013 the International Tank Container Organisation (ITCO) provides a Fleet Survey that documents the development of the global fleet of tank containers and the top players in the market.
ITCO looks in particular into the number of tank containers worldwide. From January 2012 to January 2019 the global tank container fleet grew from 340,000 to 604,700 tank containers. Within those figures the number of tank containers owned by lessors grew from 150,400 to 286,000 units.
In all those years, Trifleet accounted for 6% of the lessors’ fleet, and has been ranked as #4 lessor since the 2016 Survey.
