OCEMA Tries to Answer Chassis Questions

The Ocean Carrier Equipment Management Association is launching a Chassis Provisioning Information section on the OCEMA web site to help shippers understand the changes that ocean carriers are making in the provision of chassis at ocean ports and terminals around the country.

As a growing number of carriers get out of the business of providing chassis for merchant haulage, shippers are trying to figure out what it means for their haulage.

"This is an area of great interest to shippers, motor carriers, marine terminals, ports, railroads and other participants in the intermodal chain," said Jeff Lawrence, executive director of OCEMA. "We developed the Chassis Provisioning Information section on the web site to assist ocean carrier customers and service partners in better understanding the status of chassis provision today and in the future."

OCEMA said the new section of its site at www.ocema.org/cpi provides a summary of announcements made to date and answers to frequently asked questions.
