Rolling stock requires customised financing structures

Financing for rolling stock is special and differs from other types of financing. Over the last few years, regional rail transport alone has achieved record growth. New railway companies have entered the market and have been increasing competition ever since. The tender processes are very complex and require customised financing structures for the capital-intensive business.
