Founded in 1984

Twinstar Leasing, founded in 1984 by Arthur Schmidt, Jr., has been a leading provider of and innovator in-tank chassis leasing for the U.S. intermodal industry.  Customers in chemical, bulk liquid, trucking, and rail rely upon Twinstar Leasing’s wide variety of tank chassis equipment and its ability to customize to suit specific needs.  Twinstar Leasing’s chassis fleet offers nation-wide geographic coverage.  As a family-owned and operated company for over 35 years, Twinstar Leasing continues to raise the bar on customer service and attention, which will always distinguish Twinstar Leasing from larger competitors.  

Industry Knowledge & Experience - Customer Satisfaction 

Arthur Schmidt, Jr. began his career in intermodal container leasing in 1969 with CTI.  Witnessing the growing emergence of tank containers and tank chassis as reshaping bulk liquid intermodal transport, Arthur founded Twinstar Leasing in 1984.  Arthur worked with many of the early adopters of this equipment and advised many of the depots that service the equipment. Twinstar Leasing built its fleet by working with the leading chassis manufacturers alongside its customers to ensure that customers could meet Bridge Formula specifications and safely carry their payloads.  

Margie Schmidt joined her father in 1993 and for many years has managed Twinstar Leasing’s Operations.  Customers recognize that Arthur’s knowledge and experience joined with Margie’s problem-solving know-how provide far more than a term-lease on chassis equipment.  

Larry Lofland, Director of Sales and Customer Satisfaction, is ready to assist Twinstar Leasing’s customers to identify the best equipment for their transportation needs.
