About Us & Our Parent Company

Tyne Containers is the largest independently owned empty container park operator in Australia, now with 4 depots throughout:

  1. Sydney
  2. Brisbane
  3. Melbourne
  4. Fremantle

The Western Australia depot came on board in 2014.

Tyne is the parent company and Tiger Containers is the shipping container sales & hire arm of Tyne Containers. Our company has been servicing the shipping industry in Australia for more than 30 years.

Way back in 1975, Tyne Containers started at our current location of Tempe in Sydney. The name “TYNE” Containers is derived from the underneath structure of a shipping container. Tyne is also the name for the lifting arms on a forklift.

What’s In a Name?

The Tiger Containers arm of Tyne Containers was established back in 2008. That year was the Chinese “Year of the Tiger”, so hence the name.

Mick and Aaron Powell are the directors of Tiger Containers and we have a truly excellent and exceptional team of dedicated staff operating throughout Australia.

For more than three decades Tyne Containers has been selling, hiring out and modifying steel shipping containers for the Australian market and we are proud to contribute our expertise to this long-standing operator.

At Tiger Containers we are not limited to the hire and selling of shipping containers. We also modify and customise containers to suit the unique requirements of our valued customers. People use our containers for all manner of things, such as storage sheds, kitchens, and even on-site offices. Along with customisations, we also perform container maintenance and repairs.

Tiger Containers has locations in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and now Fremantle.  If you are looking for the top quality shipping containers that are competitively priced, then we are your best bet.
