Why lease?

Optimizing Fleet Utilization

Logistics is about timing. Leasing is a solution to cope with imbalances in your fleet and can help you to increase overall utilization and minimise demurrage costs.

Project Based Solutions (Storage)

New opportunities or projects often come without notice. Waiting for new equipment could mean that you miss out on the opportunity. Have a look at our project bases lease solutions which are ideal for projects with fixed and variable durations.

Leasing reduces your CAPEX requirements and allows you to keep your cash available for investments in your core business.



Lease solutions


Long Term Lease

We like to keep it simple. Our lease contracts are straight forward without unnecessary red tape. We offer tailor made and  fixed rate long term lease solutions for any duration required.


Short Term LeasE

In volatile markets the future is sometimes difficult to predict. Our short term lease model is a suitable solution to these ever changing markets. We aim to offer flexible contract terms which should provide a perfect fit to cover for temporary shortages, fluctuating capacity requirements and open ended projects.


Project Based Lease

Need one or multiple tanks for shutdown, temporary storage or other projects?

Do not want to be bothered by trucking, cleaning, repair and other operational necessities?

No lifting equipment available, tanks to remain on chassis or to be positioned on a drip tray?

Our all-in, one stop project based lease model is the ideal solution.


Lease to Own

We understand it is sometimes better to own than to lease. We therefor offer tailor made lease to own solutions which will not require hefty initial investments but will allow ownership over time





Fleet Management

icon-Peacock-tank container-services-fleet-management-2.jpg

We have been successfully managing fleets of several oil majors and top 10 global chemical companies in different areas of the world.

Our fleet management program focuses on three services:

  • Advising you on equipment, product suitability, and improving sustainability within your tank fleet

  • Day to day operational support to increase efficiencies, reduce costs and improve safe working

  • Ad-hoc support in case of urgent requirements

Please feel free to contact any of our team members for further information.


Fleet & Supply Chain optimization

icon-Peacock-tank container-services-management.jpg

In recent years we have successfully assisted many of our customers in optimizing their supply chain. By sharing knowledge about the equipment and by using a broad network of operators, forwarders, depots and surveyors we can:

  • Reduce your carbon footprint and demurrage costs

  • Optimize your on-site logistics and equipment capacities

  • Increase your supply chain transparency and process efficiencies

  • Improve your turnaround times and safe working 

Please feel free to contact any of our team members for further information


Off-hire Management Service & Equipment insurance

icon-Peacock-tank container-services-off-hire.jpg

Regardless of the period leased there will always be repair costs when the tank is returned to the depot for off-hire. Gaskets need to be replaced, the steam system has to be checked and damages need to be repaired up to an industry standard (ITCO) before the tank can be leased to the next customer. 

However, as we understand that no one likes a surprise at the end we therefore:

  • Inform our customers about the off-hire process before the lease starts

  • Make clear in the lease what costs are included and what costs are excluded (and have to be paid at off-hire)

  • Only with reputable independent surveyors and repair depots to guarantee full transparency

To further lower your off-hire costs exposure we can offer our:

  • Off-hire management service which further increases transparency and offers a package tailor made to your business which is ideal for budgeting purposes

  • Unique equipment insurance which insures damages caused during the lease of the container caused by mishandling by shipping lines, rail operators or trucking companies


Please feel free to contact any of our team members for more information



Tailor made for your business


Industries & Markets

Sustainability, safety and efficiency are the core values of the chemical supply chain. Leveraging 30 years of experience in ISO tank leasing Peacock’s business is focused on these values. Our ISO tank fleet complies with all applicable international regulations and we continuously aim to improve our service and innovate our fleet. A few examples:

  • Our new composite swap body tanks are 40% lighter compared to stainless steel tanks and therefore able to load up to 10% more product lowering the carbon foot print

  • We continuously add new features to our tanks such as real time telematics to increase supply chain transparency and ground operated airlines and handrails to improve safe working

  • Peacock cooperates with leading universities to optimize ISO tank operations. Studies like our heating project increase understanding of the heating process of an ISO tank, reducing turnaround time and saving costs for our customers.

Distribution and Logistics

icon-Peacock-tank container-services-fleet-management-2.jpg

It is all about finding the right balance between the highest payload and maximum flexibility. This is a complex formula including road weight limitations, transport modalities used, specific gravities of the products and empty movement reduction. Peacock’s team is geared for these business cases and our fleet is tailored to offer the optimal tank needed. During the design and manufacture we focus on weights, operational efficiencies such as baffle plates, heating capacity, insulation value and safety features like ground operated handrails and airlines.

Infrastructure, Mining and Energy

icon-Peacock-tank container-services-fleet-oil-and-gas.jpg

When transporting high volumes of liquids or gases to remote area’s for infrastructure projects, mining, or energy supply, Peacock’s bitumen, special or gas tanks are an ideal solution. Robust and dedicated for the products to be carried, these tanks are low in maintenance, flexible in use and offer optimal payload performance.

Have a look at our specialbitumen and gas tanks to find out what we can offer.

Over recent years the capacity of gas tanks has increased significantly due to improved designs and building standards. With a young fleet, Peacock’s gas tanks therefore offer optimal payload solutions for transporting or storing compressed gases. We offer tanks suitable for:

  • Flammable gases like propane and LPG used for cooking or heating

  • Propellants (aerosols) used by the cosmetic, food and pharmaceutical industry within cans for deodorant, whipped cream and asthma inhalers

  • Refrigerant gases used in air conditioners and freezing equipment

  • Industrial gases such as ammonia anhydrous which is a raw material for the production of fertilizers

Have a look at our gas tanks to see the various types and options we offer.





Making our world of transportation more sustainable is an obligation we take very serious. Peacock is working hard to find new sustainable innovative solutions which can contribute to this goal. Reducing CO2 emissions can be achieved by better utilization of transport but also in more efficient tank containers. Lighter tank containers contribute to a reduction in CO2 emissions per transport unit. In recent years we have been working hard on the development of special composite materials and lighter constructions for our tank containers while maintaining the same strength. Our latest innovation is the special composite tank container that is 40% lighter than conventional tank containers.





Founded in 1986 Peacock has more than 30 years’ experience in ISO tank leasing. We are privately owned and manage a fleet of 5.500 ISO tanks for liquids and gases. These tanks are leased to customers active in markets related to

  • Petro-chemicals

  • Food and beverages

  • Distribution and logistics

  • Oil and gas

Through our global contacts with agents, depots and surveyors we have created a network which benefits our customers in their daily business.

Besides a clear focus on operational efficiencies for our customers we are very much aware of our corporate social responsibilities within the chemical and food stuff supply chains. We therefore continually try to find new ways to improve sustainability and safe working.
