14. Why do I have to neutralize/de-identify my boxes after purchase?

All steamship line decals and markings must be removed from the box. We refer to this as de-identification or neutralization.

As part of our terms and conditions, the requirement to neutralize the containers is legally required because that container is no longer part of the shipping line/leasing company fleet.

This will prevent any future confusion about who owns this box. Unlike chassis, which have titles/registration to prove ownership, containers have prefixes and numbers along with logos. Units that are not neutralized can be viewed as breach of contract and repossessed.
