“We are delighted to be working in association with CRS due to the compatibility and capability of their automatic lid lifting and container rotation system compatible with our half-height containers,” said Peter Folkard, Regional Vice President – Oceania & Americas, Seaco Global. “These are very exciting times for Seaco Global Australia and we are looking forward to developing projects in other locations worldwide.”
According to Folkard, the Australian team’s success has been backed by access to a global leasing fleet and portfolio of equipment including: general purpose containers; ISO bulk liquid, powder and gas tanks; refrigerated and temperature-controlled units and specialised container types (suitable for bulk items). The company is particularly keen to support Australia’s agriculture and farming; construction, defence, food, government, logistics, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas and waste sectors.
The company was established in January 2015, when Bohai Leasing Co. of China acquired Cronos Containers Pty Ltd and subsequently integrated the container leasing activities into Seaco Global. Since the amalgamation of Seaco and Cronos, Seaco has been strengthening its presence worldwide and in Australia, establishing representation in Perth, new sales offices in Brisbane and Sydney and building the Seaco/HNA brand, whilst meeting the needs of existing clients and developing new business relationships.
