Please be aware that there is a shortage of chassis in the major ports at both U.S. coasts.
Over the last few years ocean carriers have stopped providing “free” chassis as part of their overall package service. The solution from the intermodal industry has been to utilise chassis pools and chassis leasing options. The ocean carrier’s separation from chassis has resulted in a negative impact on productivity.
Delays and increased costs are being incurred due to chassis being picked up at one location and containers at a second location, which has led to congestion and chassis shortages
