Unmatched Financial Expertise

As an owner and operator of rail equipment, GATX has a deeper and more sophisticated understanding of the rail industry than traditional financial institutions. GATX's Structured Finance group combines industry knowledge and flexible financing options that can be tailored to meet your needs.

Whether it is structuring, valuation or financing to meet pressing needs, or to capitalize quickly on a business opportunity, assessing future residual values is often beyond the scope of traditional financial institutions' experience. At GATX, we offer unique insights borne of our asset knowledge, long operational history and broad industry experience to help our customers meet their challenges. GATX is adept at operating leases, structuring fleet purchases and leasebacks, joint ventures and partnerships. We have worked with elite investment partners across the globe to put our knowledge, experience and expertise to work for our rail industry customers.


GATX offers a variety of leases and financing alternatives:

  • Full-service leases including maintenance, repairs, inspections, painting, lining and more.

  • Per diem leases where revenue is based on hourly mileage and utilization.

  • Net leases are available for customers who do not need a full-service program.
  • Sale-leaseback options where we purchase all or some of your fleet and lease the railcars or locomotives back to you on a net or full-service lease.
