Pound Gates are the world’s leading insurance and risk management experts in tank containers


We have a long history of involvement with the tank container industry. As insurance advisors and exclusive brokers to the International Tank Container Organisation (ITCO) we are regular attendees and contributors to industry conferences and media. Our name is recognised internationally as the insurance experts in what is a highly specialist area of insurance and risk management.

Our insurance solutions are available globally to tank container leasing companies (lessors) and to tank container operators (lessees). All of our insurance solutions are underwritten by reputable ‘blue chip’ insurance companies with high credit ratings.

We understand the complex relationships between different stakeholders and how the provision of certainty helps all parties. For this reason our unique risk profiling tools have become core to many of our clients’ risk management activities.

Bespoke solutions to specific business requirements give peace of mind that key assets and both contractual and non-contractual liabilities are protected. This is particularly critical for leasing companies who might have an array of investors.

For this reason our solutions are tailored to lessors and lessees.

For the smaller operator we offer a package based policy providing cover for physical damage and third party liability on a modular basis that recognises the needs of the operator of a small tank fleet.

Our solutions also cater for the changing geography of the global tank container sector as emerging markets create greater demand for this form of intermodal solution.

We recognise that tank containers are different to box and flexi container forms and so reward the excellent record of this type of transportation.
