PERSONABLE. RELIABLE. FLEXIBLE
Heartland Rail owns, leases, and manages railcars primarily serving grain, fertilizer, and aggregate customers. For nearly 20 years Heartland Barge Management, LLC has provided barge freight transportation services to a variety of customers. Our proven reputation on the river has allowed us to expand our services to railcar leasing.
Full Service Lease provides the following:
- Supply and use of the optimal railcars for your product service.
- Maintenance and repair services that support high utilization of the railcar.
- Administrative services that enable unencumbered use of the railcar by accounting for governmental agency and industry requirements (property tax, car registration/ Umler, railroad damage claims, etc.).
Our full-service lease, also known as an operating lease, is typically set up with a firm monthly rental rate and a lease term that ranges from one to seven years.
Net Lease provides the following:
- Supply and use of the optimal railcar for your product service. There is typically a firm monthly rental rate and lease term that ranges from ten to twenty years.
Maintenance/repair and administrative services are your (lessee) responsibility with this type of lease.
Purchase – Leaseback
We also provide railcar fleet purchase and leaseback options. Heartland Rail will purchase cars from your fleet and lease them back in either a full-service or net lease.
We are prepared to match your needs with the best lease, financial, and service solution.
