GATX Rail Europe has been a top choice for decades in the tank railcar leasing market, however, more recently, GATX has also accelerated investments in freight railcars to be-come a leader in this segment. The key to GATX’s success is its commitment to grow and diversify for its customers. Over the last 5 years, GATX Rail Europe has added about 3,000 freight cars to its fleet to satisfy the needs of our customers across Europe and industry segments. On a go forward basis, we will continue to heavily and aggressively invest to grow our freight railcar fleet and continue to expand the fleet mix with safe, modern, and high-quality railcars.
Johannes Friess, Business Unit Manager at GATX Rail Europe, is proud of the freight growth, “We entered the freight and intermodal market a few years ago, and we are keeping our promise of continuous investments. Rail freight demand is on the rise, and more and more companies view it as the sustainable and competitive green transport mode of the future.”
