Rental wagons auctioned off
Operail Leasing in Estonia has sold 807 rental wagons in an auction to which more than 40 companies were invited. Twenty interested parties submitted their tenders in the various phases of the process. The majority of the wagons sold are covered with rental contracts.
All the lessees are European companies, and the wagons are primarily located in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Mongolia, and the Baltic states. No wagons have been rented to Russia.
Operail started renting wagons in 2001, when the company was still part of Eesti Raudtee. In 2009, the wagon rental business and freight transport division were transferred to the separate company EVR Cargo, which later became Operail. In 2017, the business was expanded, and further wagons were purchased. (ben)
