Empty Container Yard/Depot and Container Maintenance & Repair


Empty Container Yard/Depot
and Container Maintenance & Repair

A depot is a place for the storage of empty containers and where various types of repairs take place. Nonetheless, container owners usually request many other services from a depot. Such services include:

  • Receipt and delivery of empty units
  • Information on movements
  • Storage
  • Repairs
  • Maintenance
  • Technical changes of various types
  • Transport

Once a workshop has demonstrated it capacity and suitability for providing leasing companies all or any of the services mentioned above, agreements may be signed with one or more of such companies. These depot agency agreements usually have a duration of six months or one year and may be cancelled by mutual agreement.


Container Maintenance and Repair:

The large number of damaged containers that are left unused at terminals in ports without adequate repair and maintenance facilities for long time, involves unnecessary movement of empty damaged containers and consequent loss of revenue. Planned maintenance and repairs serve to prolong the useful economic life of containers, eventually protecting owners’ investment in the box, as well as reducing the number of “spare” boxes, they need to keep in their fleets. To manage the Container Maintenance & Repairs (M&R) Operations the steps involved are:

  • Creating Repair Estimates
  • Getting Approvals or requests for Re-Estimate
  • Creation of Repair Work-orders until conclusion of the Repair Cycle

Repair Estimates can be transmitted to all major Liner clients through WESTIM EDI format.
