Trinity Industries has reported Q3 revenue of $813·6m, up 34·1% year-on-year. Wagon orders totalled 2 530 and deliveries 5 320, and its lease fleet reached 102 090 units. ‘Demand continued at lower levels during Q3 due to economic uncertainty associated with industrial production and global trade’, said President & CEO Timothy R Wallace on October 23. ‘These factors, combined with pressure on railcar loading volumes, are impacting lease rates and utilisation as well as orders for new railcars. Our management team has responded accordingly and is being highly selective in its originations of new railcar leases. The team has shifted a portion of new railcar production from 2019 into the first half of 2020 to facilitate the transition to lower railcar production next year.’
