Change in Chassis Provisioning Model in Los Angeles / Long Beach

Change in Chassis Provisioning Model in Los Angeles / Long Beach

Dear Valued Customer,

We wish to advise that Hamburg Süd will implement a revised policy on chassis provision in the Los Angeles / Long Beach areas effective August 1, 2014.

Currently, Hamburg Süd sources chassis from the Grand Alliance Chassis Pool for both merchant’s haulage as well as carrier conducted intermodal moves. Going forward, in and around the cities of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Hamburg Süd will no longer serve as a provider of chassis to shippers for cargo moving under merchant’s haulage through the area terminals and depots. Shippers, their agents or consignees, can procure equipment either directly from Direct Chassis Link or from various other chassis providers.

Carrier provided intermodal moves will be unaffected by this change
