"If in 2019 the increase in container production tanker was lower than the previous year -- he ITCO President Reg Lee commented -- the market continued to expand thanks mainly to the success of the continuing the conversion to tanker containers of some types of cargo previously shipped in drums or transported by chimichiere ships. In addition, China has continued to significant growth in the use of tanker containers internal transport of bulk liquids and at the same time the activities Asia,particularly in Southeast Asia, have continued to develop considerably."

Lee has announced that "in 2019 the majority of new container was purchased by rental companies mainly to meet the demands of tanker container. As there has been more availability of tank containers by companies it is a very good idea to do more to make sure that we do not have to go back to the EU. witnessed the growth in the number of third and fourth logistic parties providers that have entered the market. Often these companies have little or no accredited infrastructure to support their growing fleet of tanker containers, which we can assume have taken because of the low rental rates offered and shorter rental period."
