The Chassis You Need.
The Options You Want.

Do you use chassis? Shipping lines, freight forwarders, intermodal logistics providers, importers, exporters, trucking companies, and BCOs need chassis to move their freight. Chassis availability is affected by many uncontrollable factors such as supply chain demand, economic factors, chassis production, labor shortages, and regulatory changes.


Chassis provide a standardized and efficient way to move shipping containers between different modes of transportation, such as ships, trains, and trucks. However, most transporters who need chassis don’t have their own fleet. They must choose from the options available:

  • Purchase, maintain, and store their own chassis
  • Lease a chassis for a specified short-term or long-term period
  • Draw from a chassis pool

Each option offers advantages, but things get complicated when your volume of shipping containers spikes and wanes. 

Having too many chassis leased during a slow period can be costly. Owning a chassis that sits dormant also wastes money. However, being without a chassis when you need it can be the most difficult of all. While your customers anxiously await delivery, your shipping containers sit at port accruing demurrage until a chassis arrives.

Drawing from a chassis pool can provide flexibility but does not guarantee a chassis. Who will monitor the fleet?  Efficient chassis tracking requires expertise and technology customized to your needs.
