VTG Rail, a full service sales and railcar leasing operation, is pleased to announce that it is providing key transportation services to companies involved in oil sands production. The increased demand for railcars comes as companies are finding it difficult to finance huge pipelines or transport by ship.
VTG AG headquartered in Hamburg Germany entered the North American rail freight market in January 2008 when it acquired Texas Railcar Leasing Company. Texas Railcar continued to grow its fleet in the ensuing years and changed its name to VTG Rail in October 2011, just prior to the acquisition of the lease fleet of Sumitomo Corporation of America. VTG Rail, a full service railroad freight car sales and leasing organization is now completing its 25th year in business.
