Self Storage Providers
The CSTA is committed to promoting Best-Practice, Professionalism and Standards at Container Self-Storage Facilities.
To support the industry, we have published the “CSTA Code of Practice and Guidance for Operators of Container Self-Storage Facilities”. This Code reflects the work that the CSTA is undertaking to raise standards in this sector – and to encourage the industry to operate according to professional criteria.
Stakeholders – such as local authorities, financial partners and insurance companies – may refer to the Code of Practice in their evaluation process.
The global container fleet is estimated to be over 40 million containers, most of which are operated by shipping lines. The initial service life of a container is about 10 to 12 years which proves the container is a highly efficient and sustainable unit for transporting cargo.
Each year, more than 2 million containers are disposed by the owners – because of factors such as overstock, location, age or condition.
Innovation in container design and technology – for a wide range of applications – is essential for the growth and development of the industry.
The CSTA is a valuable platform for innovators to communicate with their customers, to discuss new designs and technology – and provide inspiration for technical and operational developments.
CSTA Innovators include: container designers and converters, suppliers of container components and ancillary equipment, self-storage management and security systems – and a wide range of other technology providers.
