| New York Stock Exchange: TAL
TAL International Group, Inc. engages in the leasing of intermodal freight containers and chassis. Its operations include the acquisition, leasing, re-leasing and subsequent sale of multiple types of intermodal containers and chassis. The company leases five types of equipment: dry freight containers, which are used for general cargo such as manufactured component parts, consumer staples, electronics and apparel; refrigerated containers, which are used for perishable items such as fresh and frozen foods; special containers, which are used for heavy and oversized cargo such as marble slabs, building products and machinery; chassis, which are used for the transportation of containers domestically; and tank containers, which are used to transport bulk liquid products such as chemicals. The company operates through two business segments: Equipment Leasing and Equipment Trading. The Equipment Leasing segment owns, leases and ultimately disposes of containers and chassis from its lease fleet, as well as manages leasing activities for containers owned by third parties. The Equipment Trading segment purchases containers from shipping line customers, and other sellers of containers, and resells these containers to container retailers and users of containers for storage or one-way shipment. TAL International Group was founded in 1963 and is headquartered in Purchase, NY.
