History: 国鉄タキ43000形貨車(こくてつタキ43000がたかしゃ)は、1967年から製作されたガソリン専用の貨車(タンク車)である。日本オイルターミナルまたは日本石油輸送が所有する私有貨車で、当初は日本国有鉄道(国鉄)に、1987年の国鉄分割民営化以降は日本貨物鉄道(JR貨物)に車籍編入されている。

同一の車体構造で同時に製作された石油類専用タンク車タキ44000形についても本項目で解説する。

Railroad/Company: 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.
