USING THE LEASING MARKETPLACE
COULDN'T BE EASIER

Four simple steps to enlist the right connection:

1. Lessors create a rail asset Lease Listing that will attract the appropriate parties:

  • Listing description
  • Rail asset type and quantity
  • Start and end dates
  • Available dates & price per-car per-month
  • Lease type and terms
  • Current location & class I carrier
  • Attachments with asset information
  • Additional information

1. Lessees create a rail asset Lease Wanted Request that describes the rail asset they seek:

  • Request description
  • Rail asset type and quantity
  • Start and end dates
  • Gross weight & max/min volume capacity
  • Commodities
  • Lease type & requested lease rate
  • Preferred location & preferred class I carrier
  • Uploaded files

2. Once complete, companies can run searches that will display results relevant to their desired rail asset type, rail line, and location.

3. Results are displayed in an anonymous fashion. If there are specific leases in which the Lessor/Lessee is interested, they can add those leases to their personalized Watch List. When the Lessor/Lessee determines that they want to pursue a lease, they can initiate a dialogue.

4. If the Lessor accepts the initial offer, both party's identities are revealed and contract term negotiations begin.
