About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of rail tank car leasing services. Rail tank cars are used to transport bulk liquids, including oil, liquefied gas, chemicals and food products. Buyers of rail tank car leasing services are also referred to as lessees in this report, and suppliers are referred to as lessors. The main lessees of rail tank cars include oil drillers, gas extractors and businesses in the agricultural sector. Lessors include rail tank car manufacturers and diesel fuel producers. This report covers operating leases and finance leases. An operating lease, which is the most common type of lease, does not pass the title to the lessee at the end of the lease period like a finance lease does. Liquid and dry bulk rail transportation services are excluded from this report.
