We are the world's largest lessor of intermodal containers, which are large, standardized steel boxes used to transport freight by ship, rail or truck. Because of the handling efficiencies they provide, intermodal containers are the primary means by which many goods and materials are shipped internationally. Our equipment leasing operations include the acquisition, leasing, re-leasing and ultimate sale of multiple types of intermodal transportation equipment. We also purchase containers from shipping line customers, and other sellers of containers, and resell these containers to container retailers and users of containers for storage or one-way shipment.
Our extensive global operating infrastructure enables us to deliver unrivaled container supply capabilities to our customers, while our scale allows us to operate with the lowest cost ratios in the industry.
With a fleet of over 6.0 million twenty-foot equivalents (“TEU”) of containers, Triton leases its containers to nearly every major container shipping line in the world and is a leading container provider to each of the top 5 global container shipping lines. Through its global network of 19 offices and 3 independent agencies in 16 countries, Triton offers its customers access to its containers through approximately 410 third-party owned container depot facilities across 46 countries.
