Rail Tank Car Leasing Services Procurement in the US
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. 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.
