The trucker-formed North American Chassis Pool Cooperative—the first of its kind—is launching its pilot program in Memphis this year.
The announcement follows the U.S. Surface Transportation Board recently approving the cooperative’s chassis pooling agreement, which will allow it to acquire and share chassis for intermodal freight transportation.
Chassis are the wheeled trailers used to transport shipping containers. When a train comes into Memphis with 300 to 400 containers at a time, those containers are put onto chassis, which are stored at the rail yards and have been primarily owned by the ocean carriers until recently.
