Container owners

Large sea carriers have their own container parks which they lease to cargo owners for delivering their goods to the point of destination. There are also special container lease operators who lease containers to cargo owners and to freight companies.

 Each container owner has a unique BIC-code (also called prefix) marked on all his containers. These codes are assigned by the international containers and intermodal transportation agency (BIC) and noted down into the international registry of container owners.
