The Aircraft, Container and Other Transport Equipment Leasing industry had growth of 3.8% in 2011-12, to bring revenue to $1.12 billion. Demand from air, rail and sea transport is the primary underlying driver of this growth, and each of these modes have responded positively to a growing demand for freight forwarding. Added to this, the industry is highly dependent on the state of the global and national economies. The industry was moderately affected by the global financial crisis, as customers cut back on spending and non-essential services. Changes in the level of activity in downstream industries such as air, rail and sea transport, affected demand for industry services.Companies in this industry are mainly engaged in leasing, hiring or renting land transport equipment (other than motor vehicles), boats or aircraft from their own stocks, without drivers or crew. The renting of containers is also included.
