Moving Beyond Traditional Borders 
The North America rail freight network is the most effective service network of its kind in the world. First developed and managed by private enterprise over 150 years ago, the capabilities of the carriers and service providers are now sought around the globe as formerly government-run rail networks are being privatized.

Recognizing this opportunity, Sasser Family Holdings successfully leveraged its North American expertise from Chicago Freight Car Leasing to form and grow CFCL Australia (CFCLA). Established in 1998, CFCLA provides locomotive power and rolling stock leasing services to Australian railroads and rail shippers.

CFCLA currently owns and manages a large multi-purpose rail lease fleet serving the Australian rail industry. This includes modern locomotives, container flats, ballast wagons, grain hoppers, permanent way equipment and ore hoppers. 

We continue to explore opportunities in other geographic markets, including supply of new equipment, modification of existing equipment, and fleet maintenance and management services. Let us know how we can support your railcar and locomotive power needs. Contact a Customer Representative.
