Falcon Lease Joins the Sasser Family of Companies

In 1928 Fred H. Sasser started a refrigerated rail service business in a small Chicago railyard. Nearly 100 years later, we’ve grown into a successful fourth-generation family of rail, automotive, aviation transportation businesses.

In 2021, Sasser continued its growth by acquiring Falcon Lease, a global container leasing company offering integrated and tailored services for maritime asset leasing.

Guided by stewardship, integrity, and respect, Sasser’s leadership team embraces the value of making our family of companies stronger and more integral to the transportation industry for generations of customers and employees to come.

At Sasser, we see culture as the outcome of what we do every day. We are thoughtful and intentional about the kind of culture we want to nourish and grow – one that is employee-driven and opportunity-based.
