Liberalisation has had a strong impact on the European market for rail freight transport. The leasing companies have almost doubled their market share in the last ten years. Most state-owned railway companies are focussing on renting rail cars instead of investing in their own freight wagons and in the rail network and passenger transport. We therefore anticipate that the rental market for freight wagons and tank cars will continue to grow disproportionately in the coming years. This opens up attractive opportunities for Aves One to expand its Rail portfolio and further increase its market share.
Shipping companies concentrate on their core business - operating ships. The containers are owned by leasing companies, which also provide the management of the "boxes". These companies need investors such as Aves One to provide the necessary equipment. Unlike the shipping markets, the market for sea containers is still growing.
A swap body is an exchangeable load carrier with four fold-out support legs that can be used flexibly and transported on different carrier vehicles. The main customers include logistics companies from the so-called courier, express and parcel market (CEP market). One of the main growth drivers continues to be increasing online trading. In the course of this, the demand for logistics equipment that we provide in the form of swap bodies is increasing.
