Cost-Effective LP Intermodal Container

All intermodal containers are depreciated in 5–6 years. A hypobaric intermodal container’s strong and durable structure assures that it will realize the tank container industry’s standard 20-year life expectancy. Because of their long life expectancy, the increased fabrication cost of tank containers can be offset by financing them for a longer term at a lower yearly expense, while benefiting from a tax advantage resulting from rapid depreciation of the higher fabrication cost.
