Peacock Container acquires Altermij Tankverhuur B.V. Tank Container Fleet

On 31 August 2018, ISO tank leasing group Peacock Container completed its acquisition of the tank container fleet, including existing leases and intellectual property rights, of Rotterdam-based Altermij Tankverhuur B.V.

The transaction adds a further 128 units to Peacock Container’s owned and managed fleet as part of a fleet expansion programme which has seen assets under management more than double over the last 3 years to approximately 5,000 units today.

Managing Director Jesse Vermeijden commented: “We welcome this opportunity to extend our services to logistics providers and end users in the oil, chemical, gas and food processing industries in our core European markets. Our diverse fleet of standard and specialised ISO tank containers will enable us to offer flexible solutions both to existing clients and to new customers who we look forward to serving as a result of this transaction.”
