Container investing involves the purchase of shipping containers, and then leasing them to shipping companies, (most often) with the help of a reputable container leasing and management company.
Since 2011, shipping containers have been in extremely high demand. Therefore, because the containers are relatively inexpensive to purchase, it creates a profitable and safe investment opportunity; for high yield and retirement investors. On the other hand, it is also a good deal for shipping companies. Under these circumstances, they can lease shipping containers as they need to, and not have to purchase and store additional containers; they may use only once or twice.
As with any investment, it is nice to have a profitable exit strategy. In this case, once a shipping container investment has yielded a satisfactory return, investors can sell their fleet of shipping containers; (in most cases) for the same amount or more than initially invested.
