SecurSpace 101: Key Takeaways

Let’s dive into the key points discussed during the webinar.

Introducing SecurSpace: A Digital Marketplace for Flexible Container Storage

SecurSpace was founded in 2018 with the mission to address the storage needs of carriers who were facing challenges finding suitable storage spaces for their equipment. The founder, while leasing chassis, discovered the demand for storage among carriers but realized there was a lack of visibility regarding available storage facilities.

  • #TruckersHelpTruckers: SecurSpace serves as a community that connects those in need of storage with facilities that have extra storage capacity. By fostering relationships and leveraging the power of connections, SecurSpace creates a mutually beneficial environment where everyone can support and assist each other. But we’re not talking only truckers, we mean carriers, shippers, brokers, freight forwarders, 3PLs, warehouses, distribution centers, container depots, any stakeholder in the supply chain.
  • SecurSpace enables the commercialization and procurement of yard storage, accommodating all types of intermodal equipment — containers, chassis, trucks, trailers, reefers, refrigerated plugins, 53′ dry vans — you name it.
  • Flexibility and Transparency: Book yard spaces on demand on a daily or monthly basis, the price you see is what you get. We know that one of the only constants in this industry is change, so if your needs change, your booking can change with them. You are in control.

SecurSpace’s Network and Stats

  • In 2022 alone, SecurSpace parter yards generated over $150 Million in storage revenue
  • The proof is in the booking: Since launching in 2018, customers have booked over 13 million spaces using SecurSpace
  • SecurSpace operates throughout the United States, with over 500 active partner yards concentrated in major marine and rail intermodal hubs.
  • The network continues to expand to meet the growing demand for storage in various regions. (Psst… Canada incoming. If you have yard space in Canada, we’re looking for a few partner yards to start our pilot program. Reach out to Bobby Strenk at robert.strenk@wisetechglobal.com)
  • SecurSpace adapts and grows along with you, our customers. We work to diversify our offerings as your needs evolve.

Secure is in the name

At Securspace, our goal is to redefine what it means to be a container and truck storage facility. We understand the importance of trust and security when it comes to storing valuable equipment and goods, so it is a priority for us to take measures to uphold the safety of your equipment and yard.

  • To ensure the safety of equipment and personnel, we vet facilities based on minimum requirements, beginning with a fenced and gated lot, and in most cases CCTV and lights at minimum.
  • Beyond that, we encourage partner yards to implement more security measures and these are displayed on every yard listing on SecurSpace.
  • To provide value and minimize disruption to partner facilities, we use a prepaid reserved model. Payment from customers is collected upfront upon booking confirmation to validate the legitimacy of the customer’s booking, and eliminates the need for manual invoicing or payment collection.
  • Partners always have sole discretion of approving booking requests. Not only does this help manage capacity, but it provides a layer of control, putting the power into your hands to make the ultimate decision about who enters your yard.
