GATX recently announced its acquisition of Trifleet Leasing Holding B.V., the fourth largest global tank container lessor. Headquartered in the Netherlands with offices worldwide, Trifleet owns and manages a fleet of over 18,000 tank containers leased to a diverse customer base in the chemical, industrial gas, energy, food, cryogenic and pharmaceutical industries, as well as to tank container operators.
Trifleet leases standard tank containers ranging from 14,500 to 26,000 liters in size; special tank containers such as cool tanks, swap bodies, over-wide tanks, lined tanks with various types of linings and electrical heated tanks; and cryogenic tank containers. In addition to leasing tank containers around the world, Trifleet also offers related services, such as Fleet Service Management and technical support.
Trifleet complements GATX’s existing railcar leasing business and shares a similar philosophy: striving for the highest levels of safety, quality, and customer service. “We are already collaborating with our new Trifleet colleagues to provide joint tank container and railcar offerings to our European customers”, says Johann Feindert, CEO GATX Rail Europe. “I am very excited about this new business platform and confident that our combined portfolio of tank containers and railcars will expand existing customer relationships as well as attract new customers,” concluded Johann Feindert.
