Fuerte recuperación en el arrendamiento de contenedores marítimos

Tras la caída del comercio internacional durante 2009, así como el descenso en la producción mundial de nuevos contenedores, que se redujo desde 3 millones en 2008 a tan sólo 300.000 en 2009, los volúmenes de transporte marítimo internacional han aumentado, produciendo así una mayor demanda de contenedores marítimos desde enero de 2010.

Se espera que el comercio aumente alrededor de un 9,5% en 2010 según datos de la OMC, produciendo por consiguiente un incremento de 8,8% en el transporte con contenedores (fuente: Clarkson).

Gold Container, subsidiara que pertenece en su totalidad a TOUAX Group, tiene una posición estratégica para desempeñar un papel primordial como socio de armadores y compañías navieras gracias a su amplia gama de servicios, desde arrendamiento operacional hasta arrendamiento financiero junto con acuerdos de Compra y Arrendamiento Retroactivo.

Gold Container has leased over 80,000 TEU (Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit containers) since August 2009 and utilization rates have returned to previous levels, reaching 91.5% at the end of March 2010. This achievement stems from the company's control of operations and its responsiveness in adapting its offer to customer requirements.

The subsidiary is also organizing the financing of 60,000 TEUs on behalf of its customers which include world leaders in container traffic.

Gold Container concluded several major deals in Q1 2010 signing agreements on Purchase & Lease Backs with top-rated shipping companies enabling the company to acquire 35,000 TEUs. The Group expects to repeat this performance in the second quarter given that these solutions respond to customers' target of focusing resources on their core business in order to obtain greater flexibility.

The TOUAX Group through Gold Container operates a fleet of 500,000 container TEUs for both operational and financial leasing as well as for sale. It offers global services to shipping companies through a network spanning more than 120 ports on all five continents.

The recent upswing of the dollar against the euro works in our favor in that the shipping container business generated sales of USD 118 million in 2009, i.e. 32 % of the Group's consolidated sales.

The TOUAX Group provides its operational leasing services to a global customer base, both for its own account and on behalf of investors. TOUAX is the European leader in shipping containers and river barges, and #2 in modular buildings and freight railcars (intermodal railcars). TOUAX is well positioned to take advantage of the rapid growth in corporate outsourcing of nonstrategic assets and every day offers efficient and flexible leasing solutions to more than 5.000 customers.

TOUAX is listed in Paris on NYSE EURONEXT - Euronext Paris Compartment C (ISIN code FR0000033003). SBF 250 index
