I am a yacht captain/engineer, why should choose a 10' instead of a 20' container?
1. Because you can allocate a container per department.
2. Because 10' containers are easier for logistics.
3. Because a 10' container can be filled to 100% unlike a 20' where you need access to the back.
I am a shipyard, why should I rent and not buy?
1. Because renting is more finacially efficient.
