Recently, I have been doing a great deal of research into shipping container investments. The opportunity to participate in (and profit from) global trade really excites me. As a shipping container owner, I would receive monthly revenues that can be used to supplement my income, or can be reinvested in containers to earn more money.
Shipping containers come in a variety of sizes and types. The most common are twenty-foot (TEU), forty-foot (FEU), and reefers or refrigerated containers. It is my understanding many container leasing companies deal primarily with these models. Investing in either of these maritime assets will ensure that your containers are constantly in demand, and consistently working hard to transport cargo and earn money.
The world’s two busiest trade routes, Asia-North Europe and Asia-North America, move more than 37 million containers each year. These shipping lanes are very important to global trade and make huge contributions to the world’s economy. Without a continuous supply of shipping containers to accommodate imports and exports, economies across the globe would grind to a halt. This makes them a valuable, hard asset to own.
To purchase containers and participate in global trade, it is widely recommended that investors enlist the help of a container leasing company, like investcontainers or similar. Companies like this operate fleets of containers across the globe, and have a long list of shipping/logistics clients they serve. Container owners can sign a management agreement with one of these leasing companies, and have their assets deployed and managed with their existing fleet.
By enlisting the help of professionals to manage their shipping containers, investors need not concern themselves with the day-to-day operation of their assets. Deployment and maintenance is all handled by the container leasing company, so investors can do other things instead of worrying. As a gentleman with a full-time job and a family, I would prefer to focus on the happiness in my life, rather than the administration of my investments.
