Riva Container Leasing and its associated companies acquire, own, manage and lease containers which
are essential intermodal equipment used in global containerized cargo trade. This equipment has enabled
the growth in global containerized trade because it allows efficient movement of goods via multiple
transportation modes, including ships, rail, and trucks. We lease out equipment primarily under long-term
contracts to the world's largest shipping lines.
Riva Container Leasing owns and manages both Dry and Refrigerated shipping containers including generator sets used to power the refrigerated containers when transported over land for prolonged periods of time while en-route to their final destination. We have long-term relationships with an extensive group of customers in the intermodal shipping industry. Our companies operate world-wide to provide you high quality equipment and excellent service with global coverage.
We have an association with Unitas Container Leasing Services of Barmuda for Equipment Management Program for alternative investment scheme.
Through Riva Containers, we offer our container customers long-term operating leases, direct finance leases, and master lease agreements (MLA's). Our fleet principally consists of two types of assets —Refrigerated Containers, Dry Containers
Dry Containers are essentially steel boxes with a set of doors on one end, and are the least expensive type of intermodal container. 20-foot units are primarily used to carry heavy, dense cargo loads (such as industrial parts and certain food products) and are generally used in areas where transportation facilities are less developed. 40-foot units are primarily used for lighter-weight finished goods, such as apparel, electronic appliances and other consumer goods, in areas with more developed transportation facilities.
Refrigerated Containers ("Reefers") are 20-foot and 40-foot high cube refrigerated containers insulated containers that include an integrated cooling machine. These containers are typically used to carry perishable cargo such as fresh and frozen produce, meat, poultry, fish and other temperature sensitive products.
