Leading rolling stock lessors join forces to create AERRL, established to promote open access to railway infrastructure
The Association of European Rail Rolling Stock Lessors is a new international non-profit association to promote interoperable, efficient, sustainable, and safe rail rolling stock in the European Union and Switzerland.
AERRL aims to
- enhance technical collaboration between all European rail industry players, especially on all issues relating to locomotive and train leasing operations for lessors in the EU
- become a new and relevant key player, engaging directly with public authorities at the European level and representing the interests of lessors and their clients (businesses, states, regions, passengers, etc.).
The founding members are Akiem, Railpool and MRCE, Northrail is joining as effective members and Cargounit, ELP and Beacon Rail Finance are joining as associate members.
