Finding a way to address shortages and safely serve customers at Harper Steel

[Orlando, FL, August 18th, 2020] — In response to the shipping container shortages and shipping port shutdowns caused by Covid-19 many shipping containers companies like Harper Steel are actively seeking new inventory sources and ways to sustain the secondary shipping container sales market. Port shutdowns on the west coast in areas like Seattle, LA and San Diego have caused shortages of inventory for resellers and builders who utilize steel shipping containers.

Asked about the impact of coronavirus on the industry James Harper of ( states, "Supply hits have definitely been noticeable. West coast inventory has been hard to come by for our customers. We are seeking new sources that are both available and who have responsible and careful logistics to protect our customers."

Be able to deliver and show inventory on the sales side of the business has meant implementing strict cleaning and logistics checklists. Steel shipping containers are cleaned and the exchange process at the time of lease or purchase is now being done in a contact free manner. Harper Steel owners expect to feel the pinch of caution in their market until 2021 or beyond. “Ports and shipping containers have become one of the sensitive touch points many eyes are focused on.” states Mr. Harper. “We understand the importance and are working to find a way to serve our buyers safely and still operate in a somewhat normal efficient fashion. “We are a first point of contact for foreign inventory and take that seriously every time we buy or sell a steel shipping container.” Further reading on the current market challenges for shipping container dealers is available at
