What is Transport & Logistics Asset Finance?

Asset finance for the transport and logistics industry can cover three particular financing lease options, all focused on the same goal: acting as funding solutions that lead to an easy way to get typical transport assets or to fund important equipment that your business needs to succeed.

This tends to mean various vehicle types, but a transport and logistics industry business may focus on using it to fund assets like repair and maintenance equipment or to purchase transport specialists and other support options.

How does Transportation Finance Work?

Transport and logistics finance focuses on providing funding solutions for your transport and logistics sector needs, whether that is leasing new vehicles or trying to purchase transport and logistics assets.

The specifics of each transport and logistics finance arrangement depend on what your business wants, the kind of business financing agreement you enter, and the businesses or leasing specialist team that you are working with.

Finance Products for the Transport and Logistics Industry

These are three ways to approach transport finance and logistics finance funding solution and spread the cost.

All three offer financing in a different way and are all useful for different parts of the transport and logistics sector.

Equipment Leasing for Logistics Company

Leasing solutions for standard equipment leasing is always the easiest option but not always the best.

A generic equipment lease can provide new vehicles (including commercial vehicles) and a range of other assets meant for the logistics industry, providing easy support if you need something specific in the short term.

Hire Purchase Transport Finance

Hire purchase transport finance is all about spreading the cost of vehicles into a longer-term hire purchase cost, improving cash flow. 

The customer is leasing the vehicles like normal but then pays the final hire purchase cost at the end of the leasing period to own the vehicle for good.

This allows businesses to get transport and logistics equipment from increased cash flow, that they would not be able to purchase outright, something that new businesses can really benefit from.

Finance Leases

A finance lease focuses on trying to release working capital from your current fleet of vehicles or unique assets.

We buy them from you to release working capital, which you can then use to buy new equipment, vehicles or other support assets.

Later on, you can re-buy the equipment from us under a new finance deal, allowing you to get your current fleet back easily.

Operating Lease

A good operating lease enables customers to pay regularly for something they are using (such as trucks or other vehicles) and then return it at the end of the lease.

This is a low-cost option with no set cost amount and can be a good way to get commercial vehicles if you are not sure how long you will need them for.
