Infinity Management Partners and its subsidiaries (collectively Infinity) are Atlanta, Georgia-based limited liability companies specializing in the acquisition and leasing of freight transportation assets. Infinity got its start in the rail industry in 2003, accumulating over 6,000 units of rail rolling stock over the balance of the decade. The portfolio was a diverse group of boxcars, small cube and jumbo covered hoppers, gondolas, flatcars and tank cars leased to an even more diverse group of users carrying freight in many different industries.
In 2009, Infinity joined with one of the world's leading financial services institutions to launch Infinity Transportation (IT), an enterprise created to acquire used rail, intermodal and other transportation equipment, and repair, modify or renovate it as needed, and then lease the equipment to railroads and shippers. Since its inception, IT and its successors and affiliates have acquired a total of approximately $625 million of railcar rolling stock, intermodal assets (domestic intermodal chassis and domestic intermodal containers), delivery/dray trucks and over-the-road trailers.
In 2014, Infinity launched its intermodal operating platform, Infinity Transportation Logistics.
