Some of our Container Alliance members also offer one-way rental containers that are great for businesses that need a container to ship goods from an origin to a destination. This enables you to save on hefty port fees for empty containers and it’s a win-win situation for both parties. This type of leasing agreement is sometimes called an off-hire container in the industry because it’s a container that’s nearing the end of its leasing period and could be sold at this stage.
