Growing Networks: LEONHARD WEISS & GATX’s Freight Railcars

LEONHARD WEISS, specializing in infrastructure construction and part of the LW-Group, one of Germany's largest construction companies, partners with GATX Rail Europe (GRE) to lease 35 state-of-the art Faccns railcars. GRE’s Faccns hopper cars will be used by LEONHARD WEISS to transport bulk goods – specifically gravel and crushed stone to maintain and grow railway tracks in Sweden.

“We chose GATX Rail Europe’s railcars because the GATX team was ready to make high-quality, well-kept Faccns freight railcars at competitive prices available to us quickly. Even bad weather didn’t spoil our railcar handover, we cherish our partnership with GATX. The team is professional, always available and coaches us with their railcar expertise,” says Thomas Groß, purchasing manager at LEONHARD WEISS.

“With LEONHARD WEISS as a partner in Germany, and other freight car users, we are growing our freight railcar leasing footprint in the construction industry. We are also proud that our wagons keep Europe’s railway network growing thanks to LEONHARD WEISS and hope to be able to realize future projects together with our new partner”, adds Julian Madsen, Key Account Manager at GRE.

GRE continues to invest in its freight fleet, resulting in a larger and more diversified offering to our customers. Serving a multitude of industries, from transport and logistics to construction, energy, chemistry and agriculture, GRE has a young and modern fleet with an average age of only 18 years. What sets GRE apart from others is our commitment to make railcar leasing easier, so you can focus on your core business.
