It all started in San Francisco in 1983, with approximately 5,000 teu (twenty foot equivalent units) owned and operated by GOLD CONTAINER in the United States.
The Touax Group acquired the GOLD company in 1985 and has since been developing its asset management platform to serve the many players in the maritime industry around the world.
In 2008, we took a first key step and celebrated our first 100,000 containers managed on behalf of the Group and third-party investors.
In 2012, we renamed our division Touax Container, to be in line with the 2 other divisions of the Group managing also sustainable transport assets, Touax Rail and Touax River Barges.

Over all those years, Touax Container has developed close and standing business relationships with all the major container shipping lines.
Touax Container is a leading global player in leasing and trading solutions with a fleet of 385,000 Teus high standard dry and refrigerated containers at the end of 2022.
We propose our extensive range of products and services for new and used containers to the shipping, logistics and industrial markets.
We are also a leader in operational management of containers on behalf of third party financial investors
We operate internationally with dedicated local teams based on 3 continents and using our global network of more than 180 strategically located depots.
Our rigorous fleet management backed by the robust and tenacious support from our clients place us today as the 1st European container lessor and the 3rd asset management lessor in the world.
