The turnover figure represents a 25.6% increase on 2014's figures. The company's wagon leasing division saw a 55% rise in revenue to €537.2m with Ebitda rising by 72.5% from €194.4m in 2014 to €335.4m in 2015, helped by the integration of leasing company AAE, which it acquired in 2014.

VTG's rail logistics division saw revenue rise by 0.6% to €324m despite strong competition and tension in Russia and Ukraine. Ebitda was €3.4m, a significant improvement on 2014's €0.2m loss.

Tank containers continued to perform well for VTG, with that division reporting a 10.2% rise in revenue to €166.3m thanks to exchange rate fluctuations, growth in overseas transport volumes and one-off earnings. Ebitda rose by 6.5% to €13.6m.
