About CARU Containers

CARU Containers was established in the year 2000, when three separate companies in the Rotterdam area decided to join forces: CATU Rotterdam (founded in 1992), Trade Craft (1984), and Lease Craft (1991).

These companies were all specialists in the sales and leasing of shipping and storage containers. Under their new name CARU these enterprises, also as a result of mergers and opening own offices in Belgium, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Switzerland, Sweden, the United States and Singapore, have developed into a multinational operating in the trading and leasing of shipping containers.

Throughout the years CARU has evolved into one of the largest traders of new and used shipping containers in the world.

Also, due to the increase of our leasing fleet CARU Containers belongs to world’s 15 largest container leasing companies. For already a number of years, CARU has a separate department which is specialized in DNV certified offshore containers.
