Leasing Refrigerated Containers

Strike the perfect balance in your equipment financing structure as part of your global fleet deployment strategy by using equipment leases. SeaCube can help you create the right leasing terms and conditions for refrigerated shipping containers to match your financial objectives.

For example, equipment leases for refrigerated containers (reefers) can provide for up to 100% financing, with the additional benefit of long-term, predictable payments that are often lower than with other types of financing. Depending on the specific circumstances, leasing reefers may qualify as a pre-tax expense, preserving credit lines for other business uses. SeaCube offers a variety of flexible lease options that can be considered to match your strategic business needs.

Insulated refrigerated containers are designed for intermodal shipping, and can carry almost any type of goods that require cold storage in transit, including food ingredients, produce, flowers and plants, medicines, candies, confectionery and chocolates, and much more. Conversely, some SeaCube customers use reefers to prevent liquid products, beverages, medicines, and similar goods from freezing during shipments to extremely cold locations. SeaCube containers are of robust steel construction and come in several standard sizes for maximum global transportation compatibility. SeaCube can work with you to arrange a lease of insulated refrigerated containers that will meet your shipping business needs.

In addition to shipping goods, reefers can also be used for temporary or semi-permanent storage space on your own property or at an outside location. They are suitable for storing perishable items and any other items that would benefit from cold storage to maintain freshness and product quality. They are strong, durable and secure with a simple, but effective locking mechanism. Our sophisticated temperature controlled containers have been used in static storage applications all over the world: in the Gulf of Mexico as food storage walk-in coolers on an oil rig, in the Middle East to store medical supplies, inside a meat packing facility in Newark, NJ to provide specific temperatures for the finest meats and poultry, and in Alaska to keep beverages from freezing.

Many distributors and retailers use reefers as temporary storage during peak seasonal purchase times and during expansion of operations. Others use reefers to support temporary facilities such as disaster recovery, state fairs, and other events. For container uses in temporary or semi-permanent storage and similar needs, SeaCube can work with you to arrange a lease of refrigerated containers that will meet your financial and operational objectives.

 

Selection Guide for Refrigerated Containers

Reefers come in three standard sizes to maximize their international transportation interoperability. Users find these sizes very effective not only for shipping, but for storage uses as well. Choosing the right container size depends primarily on the volume of material to be held and on the desired ceiling height.
