Service & Expertise

Lease Types

Choosing the right lease type depends on individual circumstances. Working closely with management, we can determine and implement a financing structure suited specifically to you. Flexible financial options include: full-service, net and per diem leases; 1- to 5-year lease terms, or as needed; new or used equipment options; and sale/leaseback programs.

Options We Offer
Full-Service Operating Lease

We are responsible for all necessary maintenance related to normal usage and property taxes.

Net Operating Lease

You are responsible for all operational costs of the railcar, including maintenance and property taxes.

Per Diem

Rent payments are determined based on the time and mileage a railcar has used in a given month.

Sale Leaseback

We buy your railcars and lease them back to you, increasing your cash flow and capital for other investments.

Maintenance

Preventive maintenance yields the best long-term results by reducing costly unscheduled repairs. Our maintenance management experts can customize services specifically for you.

Reduced Downtime

Coordinating repairs with scheduled plant maintenance improves equipment availability and reduces railcar needs and costs.

Maintenance Expense Forecasting

Provides a tool to more accurately forecast future expenses based on mileage and loading levels.

Preventive Maintenance

Allows maintenance to be performed in lower-cost, private contract shops – reducing more costly unscheduled repairs.

Warranty Monitoring

Tracks railcar component performance to detect red flags of premature wear or failure.

Experience

Our long-tenured core staff will guide you through the complex operational and management aspects of rail shipping. Because of our experience, we can recommend options that lead to competitive pricing and financial stability – no matter the size or structure of your operations.

Purchasing railcars comes with higher costs because of capital requirements, maintenance and regulatory issues. However, if you want to invest in your businesses and not in railcars, you’ll immediately realize the value of our leasing expertise and financial resources.
