321 Equipment was founded in 1965 leasing dry van storage trailers to local manufacturing plants and originally was located on Highway 321 in Gastonia but has since moved and is now located on I-85. In the late 1990's 321 Equipment began renting shipping containers. As the international shipping industry has grown, so has 321 Equipment. We have over 600 containers in stock and on our yard in Gastonia, NC. 321 has been family owned and operated since 1965.
