A lesser known side of Tuscor Lloyds' business is in container storage. The company operates this side of its operations through its subsidiaries, Container Solutions and Container Sales, Hire and Leasing.
Global logistics provider Tuscor Lloyds is already well known for its Full Container Load (FCL) freight services. The firm ships containers all over the world from its hubs in Europe, Mediterranean, Far East and the Americas. Like many in the shipping industry, container forwarding forms the backbone of the company's trade.
Recently, however the firm secured an extension to its container storage project which has seen the accumulation of significant stocks of boxes in Mexico and Northern Europe. There is currently a chronic worldwide shortage of shipping container supplies and the project extension has prompted a huge buyout of stock from the world’s largest depots.
Tuscor Lloyds supports its big retail customers by positioning boxes directly in store car parks to provide extra storage around busy periods. Typically the upcoming Christmas and holiday period will exert more pressure on the stock as the company locates more containers to meet increasing demand. The firm has been prompted to find new and creative ways of supplying this project including purchasing from China and buying up surplus shipping line stock around world.
