With our diverse fleet of international marine containers and railcars, and advanced North American and international logistics capabilities, we simplify your shipping needs to get your cargo where it needs to be, fast and efficiently. 

CAI Containers.
You may not know it, but you saw us today.

With more than 1.2 million TEU's in use around the world, chances are you’ve seen a CAI intermodal container. As a leading global transportation company, you will find our containers on railcars, ships, highways, and everywhere goods are transported. 

A fixture in the container leasing industry for decades, CAI's fleet of standard and specialized containers transports raw materials, agricultural products, and finished goods from where they are to where they need to be, safely and efficiently. 

CAI was formed in 1989 to provide leasing services to the shipping industry, the foundation of global trade. Over the years we have added assets, capabilities, and expertise, with our container business at the forefront of servicing our global customers.  

CAI Rail.
Transporting what America makes.

CAI's rail operations focus on specialized, high-quality equipment, and a wide variety of leasing terms to meet your needs. Our team of experienced professionals are always there to provide the best solution and customer experience. 

CAI Rail is a team of professionals with extensive experience in every discipline associated with these assets: We know rail transportation. We understand your needs, develop the best solution, and get things done.

CAI Logistics.
Around the corner and around the globe.

The best route from point A to point B is not always a straight line, and the best route today might not be the best route tomorrow. As the CAI family of logistics companies, CAI Logistics, Hybrid Logistics, and Challenger Overseas will find you the best route whether you're shipping around the city or around the globe. Our transportation capabilities increase efficiency, while providing current status and complete visibility. 

What we do is important; how we do it is essential. Our logistics support focuses on service, which has five key components:

  • Understanding the direction of your company,
  • Developing value to support your objectives,
  • Defining strategies to serve your needs,
  • Honoring our commitments, and
  • Delivering results.
