In January 2015, HNA-controlled Bohai Leasing Co of China acquired Cronos Containers Pty Ltd, and subsequently integrated the container leasing activities into Seaco Global. Since the amalgamation of Seaco and Cronos, Seaco has strengthened its presence not only worldwide but also in Australia with representation in Perth and established new sales offices in Brisbane and Sydney.
The Seaco Global Australian team have been focusing on building the Seaco / HNA brand, whilst continuously meeting the ongoing needs of existing clients and developing new business relationships throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
Peter Folkard, RVP for Oceania & Americas says he is proud to have formed a collaboration with Sydney based Container Rotation Systems (CRS). Folkard says “We are delighted to be working in association with CRS due to the compatibility and capability of their automatic lid lifting and container rotation system compatible with our Half Height containers. These are very exciting times for Seaco Global Australia and we are looking forward to developing projects in other locations worldwide.”
The Australian teams’ success has been supported by access to a global leasing fleet and unparalleled portfolio of equipment including: General Purpose Containers, ISO Bulk Liquid, Powder & Gas Tanks, Refrigerated and temperature controlled units and Specialised container types (suitable for bulk items). The global brand and local reach, helps to strongly position Seaco Global Australia as a reliable company for local industries to turn to, for the right container type to support: Agriculture & Farming, Construction, Defence, Food, Government, Logistics, Manufacturing, Mining, Oil & Gas and Waste.
In addition to a wide range of equipment, the Australian based container leasing team can offer flexible domestic or international leasing options, tailored to suit individual customer requirements for long-term, short-term, master lease, spot-lease, one-way lease, finance lease and lease purchase options; including Damage Protection Packages (DPP).

The Australian Container Sales team can offer specific equipment designated for sale in ‘as is’ or ‘cargo worthy’ condition. Seaco also has access to a network of skilled engineers who can undertake additional upgrades, modifications and conversions to suit customer specifications.
