When it comes to business financing for the transportation industry, equipment financing is by far the largest single form of capital that is available to transportation service companies due to the intensive use of on road assets.

Because of the large market demand, there are also several financing companies that primarily focus on transportation equipment financing and still others that provide capital on smaller scale specialty equipment.

The leasing companies that have transportation financing programs will usually consider both new and used transport equipment.  The used market also has a large number of regional players that tend to be closely linked with auction houses, liquidators, and equipment vendors for disposing of any equipment they may acquire through operating lease or operator payment default.

Because of the strong and liquid resale market, operating leases tend to be more prevalent in the transportation industry than other industries operating in Canada.  The choice of capital versus operating lease is really a business decision to align with whatever equipment replacement strategy a particular company is following.

Outside of the larger transport companies, equipment finance companies also provide lending and leasing programs to owner operators.   Some of the major credit requirements for smaller operators include home ownership and a reasonably solid credit profile.

At the same time, there are financing programs for all levels of credit, keeping in mind that lower forms of credit will not only be harder to come by, but will have higher financing costs and faster repayment requirements which will be more difficult to cash flow.
