History: JNR Taki 43000 (Kokutetsu Taki 43000) is a gasoline-only freight car (tank car) manufactured from 1967. It is a privately owned freight car owned by Japan Oil Terminal or Japan Oil Transportation, and has been incorporated into the Japan National Railway (JNR) initially, and after the privatization of JNR in 1987, it has been registered on the Japan Freight Railway (JR Freight).
This description also applies to the Taki 44000, a dedicated tanker for petroleum products, manufactured simultaneously with the same body structure.

Japan Freight Railway Company (日本貨物鉄道株式会社 Nihon Kamotsu Tetsudō Kabushiki-gaisha), or JR Freight (JR貨物 Jeiāru Kamotsu), is one of the constituent companies of Japan Railways Group (JR Group). It provides transportation of cargo nationwide. Its headquarters are in Shibuya, Tokyo near Shinjuku Station.

The Japan Railways Group was founded on April 1, 1987, when Japanese National Railways (JNR) was privatized, and then divided into six regional companies and Japan Freight Railway Company. Although the passenger operation of JNR was split into six companies, fares and regulations are standard for all companies and every region of Japan except Okinawa is covered by the railway network spanning approximately 19,800 kilometres (12,300 mi).

Formerly part of JNR, the freight operation was not divided and became a single separate company when JNR was privatized and split. Although it has only about fifty kilometers of track of its own, it also operates on track owned by the JR passenger railways and other companies. The company uses the initials JRF as an abbreviated name for identification.
