We are CARU Containers. We trade and rent out new and used shipping containers across the globe, operating from offices in 8 countries.
In the year 2000, CARU Containers was born from a merger between CATU Rotterdam, Trade Craft and Lease Craft. With the fusion of CARU Containers Rob Tromp, our current CEO, and Paul Ockers made container trading more professional and human.
At CARU, we love containers because they’re an unpretentious product. They do what they do, and they’re pretty good at it. And because of their simplicity, the possibilities are endless. In our opinion, the container is the greatest invention of the 20th century.
We can relate to containers, as we are also always on the move. We explore other countries, new ways of trading, and new digital technologies.
We make buying and renting containers a pleasure. Simple, human, transparent, and fun. And it seems this approach is working: we have grown to be one of the largest traders of containers in the world.
We currently work with hundreds of container wholesalers across the United States. If we can't help you with a specific need, we can point you in the right direction and match you with a valued partner.
